Dear fellow OSGeo'ers,

If you are interested in learning about open source GIS for the .NET
platform, please consider coming to MapWindow 2010 in Orlando,
Florida, 31 March - 2 April, 2010.

This is the first official meeting of the MapWindow GIS project team
since it's release as open source and will include workshops and
technical presentations on building applications for Windows using our
programming libraries, using our end-user desktop application, and
working with a number of third party applications for environmental
and water resources modeling built on the MapWindow platform.

MapWindow (http://www.mapwindow.org) is an ActiveX and .NET
programming library, plug-in development environment, and simple end
user desktop GIS primarily for the Windows operating system written in
C#, VB.NET and C++, and integrating and exposing to .NET programmers a
number of low level OSGeo libraries.

The main application receives approximately 6000 downloads per month
from around the world and has been downloaded over 270,000 times since
being released as open source in 2005. MapWindow It is translated in a
dozen or so languages and has a large source code contributor team
representing every continent except for Antarctica (sorry...)  and
there are about 9,000 people on our opt-in mailing list.

Please feel free to learn more about the project here:
