   * **State of the Stack**: ​ A live demo of the OSGEO-live DVD debuted in September at FOSS4G in Denver. We'll bring a laptop and DVD and let evangelists come up and show off their favorite open source GIS software. The Stack refers to the various software that make up the open source GIS ecosystem, from data management (PostGIS), web map serving (Mapserver, GeoServer), to desktop and web clients (Quantum, gvSig, Openlayers, etc). Participants will include members of our local OSGEO-PDX chapter - Percy   * **State of the Stack**: ​ A live demo of the OSGEO-live DVD debuted in September at FOSS4G in Denver.

   * **PostGIS and the Geographic Names System (GNIS)**: ​ A tutorial style presentation on loading data into PostGIS and running some basic spatial queries, using GNIS and TIGER polygon data (counties and pseudo zip codes). ​ [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Geographic_Names_Information_System|GNIS]] is a fascinating collection of geographic point features in the USA that are (for whatever reason) deemed worthy of receiving a name, ranging from well known churches to airports to unincorporated settlements. ​ [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​TIGER|TIGER]] is the US Census Bureau'​s set of base geographic data.  This will be mostly a terminal presentation,​ with a little bit of QGIS and a lot of ad-libbing. - WebbS.   * **PostGIS and the Geographic Names System (GNIS)**: ​ A tutorial style presentation on loading data into PostGIS and running some basic spatial queries, using GNIS and TIGER polygon data (counties and pseudo zip codes). ​ [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Geographic_Names_Information_System|GNIS]] is a fascinating collection of geographic point features in the USA that are (for whatever reason) deemed worthy of receiving a name, ranging from well known churches to airports to unincorporated settlements. ​ [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​TIGER|TIGER]] is the US Census Bureau'​s set of base geographic data.  This will be mostly a terminal presentation,​ with a little bit of QGIS and a lot of ad-libbing. - WebbS.
