The GeoVoCamp in Madrid will be co-organised with the one in Santa Barbara to make it easier for people from Europe to participate. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) will provide meeting rooms for the duration of the VoCamp Feb 4 to 5.


We plan to further work on the NeoGeo vocabulary. A potential further area of work will be generating LinkSpec's to help to map various open spatial datasets to each other (e.g., LinkedGeoData or

Of course, and most importantly, the GeoVoCamp is free and open to everybody with an interest in geo-ontologies, spatial semantics (with and without geo), Linked Spatiotemporal Data and the Geospatial Semantic Web.


The team of organisers will prepare a template for documentation, and breakout groups should take notes, which will be presented and discussed in the plenary. We plan to coordinate with the VoCamp at Santa Barbara via video link.

We took some notes.

The GeoVocamp will take place 4-5 February 2012. To ensure that the meeting is productive and we get some real outcomes we hope that you can stay Saturday and Sunday (4-5 February). We will kick off the GeoVoCamp Saturday 10am. We will close the event Sunday 3pm.


The Vocamp will take place at the Main Library of The National Distance Education University (UNED) [2],

Paseo Senda del Rey, 5. Ciudad Universitaria, Madrid.

Take 46 form the city centre to Moncloa, or from Moncloa to the city centre. Get off the bus at Senda del Rey.

This Library is 20 minutes walking distance from the nearest metro station ("Ciudad Universitaria" Line 6 - gray) location map for more details.

We booked different rooms at this Library for our sessions (4-5th February).
