We’ve got a great list of sponsors lined up for the conference, but are certainly looking for more. Don’t be left out in the cold on this opportunity! Many thanks to all those who have committed to sponsoring to date, this conference would not be possible without your support.

Visualizing Neighborhoods Hackathon
The University of Minnesota Center for Urban and Regional Affairs and Open Twin Cities is scheduling a hackathon to coincide with FOSS4G NA and the Neighborhoods, USA conference that will also be in Minneapolis.
Visualizing Neighborhoods is a day-long event to bring together neighborhood leaders, technologists, data visualizers, designers, artists, scientists, civil servants, and anyone else interested to explore how data can be used for research, analyzing, mapping, outreach, engagement, and communication in our neighborhoods. The goals are to start conversations, build community, experiment, and prototype projects for neighborhoods.
