The Ordnance Survey are kindly providing attendees with a USB stick which will not only contain some of the OS open-data products but also Portable GIS as demoed by Jo Cook . If you have a Windows laptop and bring this along to the event, then you will be able to follow through the workshop examples with Jo. Portal QGIS, as the name suggests runs from a USB stick and therefore does not need to physically be installed on your machine (find out more). There may be limited access to power points and internet access so please bear this in mind!
The event is sold out, with all 35 tickets being snapped up. If you think you might not actually be able to attend, then please do get in contact as there are a number of people on our waiting list.
