The Conference of Irish Geographers 2017 was very enjoyable. I made my way to UCC (who hosted) to present our Slick Mapping results at the inaugural EO session. The usual culprits from MScs in GIS and RS were there scattered throughout the crowd. The Irish Geography community really is a tight-knit one, everyone knows everyone else and the atmosphere reminded me very much of Survey Ireland and the Geomatics community. Looking forward to next year when it is being hosted by NUIM and well done everyone involved this year.
