The dutch OSGeo team recently organised a succesfull event as part of the national GeoBuzz event. Some 100-ish came to listen to a variety of speakers. GeoCat sponsored the event, was actively involved in the organisation and hired a sketch-noter, Erwin Dijkhoff, that captured the talks at the event in catchy sketches. In this post we present some of his work.
