Announcing our keynote! James Fee

WhereCamp PDX is an unconference, meaning that we define the sessions and schedule together at the conference rather than ahead of time. For this year’s event, we invited a keynote speaker to help kick off the conference, and connect the many topics and people that WhereCamp brings together.

We’re pleased to announce that James Fee will be joining us to speak about data sharing and standards!  Here’s a little bit about James:

James Fee, GISP, is an Evangelist at WeoGeo, Inc. Fee has extensive experience in GIS development (ESRI, Autodesk®, OSGeo), as well as development of GIS implementation plans. He was instrumental in enabling the Greater New Orleans Community Data Center to track the recovery of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina and previous clients span the Department of Defense (Navy, USMC, Army and Air Force), Department of Interior, State and Local Governments, Private Sector and Non-profits.

Fee is responsible for developing the developer community around WeoGeo and help users of WeoGeo Library and Market succeed at sharing and monetizing their data. Fee blogs about geospatial technology at and has helped develop an online community culminating in Planet Geospatial. He is a frequent presenter at GIS conferences around the world and has recently keynoted the 2009 FME User Conference. He is also a regular columnist for GeoInformatics magazine.
