StackOverflow for GIS Launches Private Beta

Then, its founders, Joel and Jeff, had to buy a warehouse to keep their VC money in. Now, they’ve begun rolling out verticals. Today, the latest version opened for private beta. GIS StackExchange is for people involved or interested in Geographic Information Systems. The beta is restricted to members of the Area51 GIS community but the public beta will begin on the 29th. The verticals are being produced in a very consensus-focused way, which fits the cooperative nature of the original. The Area51 site hosts a large number of proposals for new roll-outs.
