Hello everyone,

This is a short invite to all MapServer users in the Ottawa (Ontario,
Canada) region.  The next Ottawa-MapServer user group meeting will take
place a week from today (Tues Nov 30th). This will be an informal
gathering after work hours (in a bar) and an excellent way to meet other
MapServer users in the area.  Here are the specific details of the meeting:

Time:     Tues Nov 30th, 6pm (for about an hour or so)
Location: Patty's Pub, Ottawa (1186 Bank Street, corner of Ossington Ave
and Bank, Ottawa South)
Internet: wireless provided
Parking:  available in sidestreets
Food:     wing night (cheap wings!)


very informal gathering, topics include:

1) demo: Xiaoyuan Geng from Agriculture Canada has volunteered to show
their work on GeoLinking and GDAS related geoprocessing (titled
"Dynamically generate WMS using GDAS xml streams")

2) demo: Dean Gadoury from DM Solutions has volunteered to
show the Gulf of Maine Mapping Portal, a system recently developed using
the Chameleon service instance to allow organizations to easily publish
data for other members, or build their own mapping applications.

3) open discussion: MUM3/OSGIS, mapserver 4.4 changes, ....

There is a mailing list for this group, and you can join at:
