Open Source Geospatial Tools: Enabling Decision Makers

  1. 1. Open Source Geospatial Tools: Enabling Decision Makers Exploring Open Source tools available for EBM Presented at Coastal Zone 2007 by Aaron Racicot – GIS Programmer, GISP Ecotrust www.ecotrust.org [email_address]
  2. 2. Open Source GIS - What is it? OS Core (Linux) OS GIS Base Tools (GDAL, FDO, PostGIS, etc.) OS GIS Web Apps (Mapserver, MapGuide, OpenLayers, etc.) OS Base Tools (Apache, Compilers, etc.) OS GIS Desktop Apps (QGIS, GRASS, UDig Jump, OSSIM, etc.)
  3. 3. Why Open Source? Cost Freedom Community Get Good Karma Robust and Stable Fast Development Cycle Very Low Barrier To Community Entry Long History of Science/Academic Involvement BENEFITS
  4. 4. Why Open Source for EBM? Common Workflows Fit Well With OS GIS Tools Data Collection Model Integration Web-Based DST’s ???? (Flexibility) Reduced Expense for Tight Budgets Software Expense Contracting/Development Deployment and Hosting ???? (Flexibility) Standards Based – Transparent Development Standards Focused Open Development Community Building ???? (Flexibility)
  5. 5. Organization – Where to start…
  6. 6. EBM Tool2.0 Web2.0 is just an extension of what Open Source has been all about since the ’70s. Web2.0 says that community based development, social networking, decentralization of authority, freedom to re-use, and bi-directional interaction are some of the cornerstones of a “modern web”. EBM Tool2.0 is no different, for it to succeed it needs to be based on transparent and agile systems, involving the technical, social, and environmental aspects of our communities. - me
