507GIS and dec 13th meeting
- Nov 19, 2003I am setting up the December meeting for Lilax (http://www.lilax.org)
and wanted to know how many of you would show up for the following
presentation by GenaWare. Take a look at the following information and
then the proposed talk. If you will be attending let me know by sending
an affirmative e-mail to me - if there are a good number who are
interested then the company will have the speakers fly out. I believe
they are coming from NC.
These days this kind of information regarding potential attendance is
the kind of thing that companies would like to gather prior to making
the commitment. If there are not many of you who can attend then it
might be that we can postpone the session to next year.

software company in which all components of the software run natively on
Linux, and which is used for the core build. We provide everything from
back-end spatial data processing engines to enterprise web server and
