International QGIS User and Developer Conference – University of Copenhagen

International QGIS User and Developer Conference

This conference has been held

QGIS Conference

The development and use of GIS in recent years has exploded - it is no longer an 'experts only' pursuit. This makes the application much more exciting and challenging. Multiple users - multiple applications - more challenges. The advent of highly functional, free and open GIS applications such as QGIS has further broadened the audience of those who can make use of GIS in their daily activities.

This QGIS-centric conference aims to bring together developers, users and educators worldwide and foster closer interactions in order to work for ideas for improving the software and its use. It is in forums like this where ideas can be exchanged and developed.

For an application such as QGIS to realise its full potential, it is important that it is developed in collaboration between users and creators of the software. Usually QGIS developers and users meet at the mailing lists, stack exchange and other virtual meeting places.

The QGIS community hold meetings twice a year: last year meetings were held in Vienna, Austria and Essen, Germany. Up until now these meetings have been developer community focussed. This first meeting to be held in 2015 is in Nødebo - Denmark and for the first time ever it will be combined with a user conference!

QGIS is used all over the world - and in a great variety of professions. At you can read the many user stories and get inspiration for how it can be used in your own work

QGIS Diversity statement

The QGIS Project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone.

No matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you. We welcome contributions from everyone as long as they interact constructively with our community.

While much of the work for our project is technical in nature, we value and encourage contributions from those with expertise in other areas, and welcome them into our community.
