What happened to the 10th event?

For those of you reviewing our blog and wondering what happened to the 10th event, it was an Expert MapMaker's Meetup on May 10, 2013. See pics & more info on the MapUp event site

The event was targeted to experienced mappers so we did not promote it widely other than one social media post.

Look forward to more mapping events later this year from GBG Dhaka and Bangladesh MapMakers community!

Presentation from our 9th GBG meetup - GBG @ PMO Innovation Adda

Our 9th GBG meetup was a bit different from our past GBG meetups because this time GBG community members invited the GBG managers to present at their event.

For many months now, the Bangladesh Prime Minister's Office and their Access 2 Information project have been attending our GBG events. They invited us to join their Monthly Innovation Adda (Dialogue) to present about what GBG is, the events that we're holding, a special review of our very popular Mapping Bangladesh event, and ideas on how we can partner with PMO on more initiatives.

BIG thank you to Manik Mahmud and Rafiqul Islam Sujon from the Prime Minister's Office for inviting us and helping to organize the event.
