OSGeo-fr, the french speaking OSGeo local chapter, is organizing on 10th of
June 2013 the Francophone Open Source Geomatics day (aka FROG) in Paris inside
French IGN building (at Saint-Mandé, close to Paris).
FROG is one day of conferences and meetings on several topics around OSGeo-fr
projects and is a great opportunity to bring all together the community of
users, developers or just curious of free software in geomatics.
The event is expected to attract around 150 people.
