Membership and Networking


GeoSpatial San Diego

Geospatial San Diego is a networking group for people with careers and interests in the geospatial industry in San Diego county. The geospatial ecosystem in San Diego is robust but fragmented, touching various aspects of government (local, state, and federal), academia, and industry in powerful ways. The focus of this networking group is to bring together geospatial professionals from all corners of this community in fun, social settings to share information, help build relationships, and strengthen the social fabric of our San Diego geospatial community.

Join us as the CTO of ePi Rational, Inc. in a discussion on Offline Maps for Mobile. As an added bonus David Blumberg wants to help folks maintain the GISP certifications

ePi Maps are designed with mobile in mind from the beginning. “Mobile First” means that all map data is embedded in the app and the customer’s experience is great once they download the app. “Mobile First” also means that the map data is presented without a server; truly serverless maps. If the application is backcountry hiking or search and rescue, then the customer is ready to “go well prepared.”

Rob Chohan – Rob currently works for ePi Rational, Inc., a San Diego based startup creating innovations in cartography, data analysis & visualization, mobile, and FOSS4G. ePi Rational focuses on ‘data wrangling’ to tell a story about a location.
David Blumberg – David will briefly discuss GISP maintenance point "contribution" opportunities by leveraging Geospatial San Diego meetings. David Blumberg is a GIS analyst with 15+ years in the field. His experience has touched a wide variety of fields and sub-disciplines ranging from urban planning to emergency management. David is a graduate of University of California, San Diego and is currently working as a GIS project manager with US Navy Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC)
