First international SAGA GIS User meeting: Program

First international SAGA GIS User meeting: Program

On the 6th of July, 2006, the first international SAGA GIS User and
developer meeting will be held at the AGIT Symposium in Salzburg.
SAGA (System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses) is a fast-
spreading Open-source GIS software, with a special "Application
Programming Interface" (API) for geographic data processing and a
user-friendly Graphical Interface. SAGA GIS supports raster data
(e.g. digital terrain models, satellite images), vector data, and
tables. The global development process yields a vast amount of
application opportunities and an ever-growing number of sets of
geoscientific methods and analysis tools, bundled in exchangeable
Module Libraries.

The SAGA User Group e.V. (www.saga-gis.org) invites SAGA GIS users,
developers and collaborators, as well as prospective new users and
interested scientists, to attend the first international SAGA GIS
User Meeting.
