Why we’re organizing a Meetup with the Geoawesomeness Community


Geoawesomeness will be turning 8 this year! Since then, we’ve grown as a community, have had over 80 guest bloggers, interviewed over 25 of the most innovative geospatial startups, totalling to over 2000 blog posts on here! Earlier this year, we published our master plan and were looking for another way to be inspired and connect.

We’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, and since Munich has such a vibrant geospatial scene, we thought it was about time to put together the 1st #geoMUC Meetup for geogeeks in Munich! Here’s why.

We want to meet you in person!

Over the years, we’ve gotten some invaluable feedback, exchanged messages, and perhaps even collaborated on a blog post. So why not try to meet more of our community in person and chat in a fun environment?


We want to connect the geogeek community

This meetup will not just be about us, but rather about the speakers and YOU, the attendees. We hope that you will make some connections through networking, learn something new, and leave feeling inspired.

Here is our current speaker line-up:

(A) “Mapping the indoors for unleashing the power of indoor spatial intelligence” by NavVis

(B) ”Working with Planetary-Scale Data in the Cloud” by Jed Sundwall, Global Open Data Lead, Amazon Web Services

(C) “Democratizing geo for man and machine” by Yashar Moradi, CTO @ CloudEO

(D) “From machine to map to machine” by Dario Manns, Co-founder @ FairFleet

(E) “Real-time 3D maps for an automated and smart future” by Johannes Start, Product Owner @ Artisense.ai

(F) To be announced

If you’re interested in filling the last spot, send us an email at info[at]geoawesomeness[dot]com


It will be fun!

It will be a great time to mingle with other geogeeks in NavVis; headquarters. Esri Deutschland and Esri Suisse has also sponsored some drinks and refreshments for us!

What about other cities?

At the moment, we’re focusing on building some momentum in Munich and it will hopefully become a quarterly(?) thing. Who knows! Maybe one day, we’ll come to your city.


Want to join the fun? It will be on April 11, 2019 starting at 6:00pm. As it is a private office, we just ask that you register in advance:
