Bio

Ragi began his geospatial career over a decade ago as an engineer at ESRI, where he worked on the Geodatabase team creating, designing, and maintaining ArcGIS core components. At Microsoft, he worked on the main GIS data pipeline of Microsoft Flight Simulator. He ran a successful GIS consulting company in the Bay Area where he helped organizations like NVIDIA and CSR with their GIS challenges. In addition to founding GeoMeetup, the largest developer-centric geospatial Meetup in the world, Ragi is also heavily involved in Open Source GIS Software (he is an active OSGeo Charter member) and often contributes code to O.S. geospatial projects (e.g. as a committer in GDAL) that are the foundation of several Open GIS applications worldwide.
