Open Source software has come a long way in recent years for storing, manipulating and presenting spatial data. The Openstreetmap (www.openstreetmap.org) project is a great example of what can be achieved using open software and open data.

This presentation will look at using a combination of postgis, geoserver and openlayers to process, store and present vector and raster map data.

The presentation will also demonstrate OGC web mapping protocols, map projections, spatial toolkits (including uDig, gdal and ogr) and sources of free geospatial data.

Gavin Jackson is a software engineer working in the Spatial Team on the Atlas of Living Australia project (www.ala.org.au).

Bio: A software engineer with 10 years experience (BInfTech ANU, Msc UNSW), he has worked in a variety of environments, including Department of Defence (IT Security), CPT Global (Stress and Volume Testing), Les Mills (Software Engineer) and, currently, CSIRO (Spatial Software Engineer).

He has long been an advocate for the use and implementation of Open Source technologies, and is a Redhat Certified Engineer (RHCE).
