The 16th November saw the 2nd and another successful AUGIuk Geospatial User Group (GUG) meeting. The GUG, hosted at Autodesk’s offices in Farnborough and jointly sponsored by AIT Spatial and BenchMarq, was attended by over 40 people from all over the UK.
The delegates were treated to a good mix of presentations from Autodesk and Datech on the new features of AutoCAD Map 2011, and user presentations from both Private and Public organisations. AUGIuk would like to thank the following for their time to attend and speak at the GUG.
Paul Lloyd-Smith Datech

AUGIuk is also pleased to announce that it is being sponsored by Autodesk Northern Europe and Paul Oakley, Chairman of AUGIuk welcomed Iris Gallmann from Autodesk to the GUG and thanked her for the continued support for the Autodesk user community. Iris commented “AUGI has been looking after the Autodesk community for over 20 years and we are very pleased to have a UK Chapter dedicated to UK users of our products.” This sponsorship is a great boost for AUGIuk and will enable the Board to organise further user meetings for 2011 and beyond. Paul Oakley added “AUGIuk is committed to supporting the many Local User Groups (LUGs) within the UK and we are indebted to Autodesk’s help, without which the LUGs would be unlikely to grow.”
