WhereCamp Preparty!

Join us for the Fifth Annual WhereCampPDX Kickoff Party this Friday at Geoloqi HQ!. Beers and banter will be provided! With the growing numbers of geonerds this weekend, feel free to migrate to Lotus Tavern, conveniently located downstairs from Geoloqi, if space gets too crowded upstairs! If you’re here early for the State of the Map Conference, you’re welcome to join us as well. Just let us know who you’re with at the door!

What is Wherecamp?

WhereCampPDX is a free, volunteer-created unconference for anyone interested in geography and technology. This year’s event will be happening October 12th-14th, with a full day of unconference sessions at Metro Regional Center on the 13th.

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. We convene together, plan sessions, and break-out into the proposed session discussions and activities. This gives everyone an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most, and talk about emerging topics that are still new and exploratory. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. As a result, the event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

To attend, you’ll need to be signed up at, or let us know you’re here early for State of the Map.
