Introduction to KAOS-G at FOSS4G Osaka 2013

  1. 1. Introduction to KAOS-G : For better Open source GIS eco system in South Korea 7th November 2013 Heegu Park Gaia3D Inc.,
  2. 2. Awareness of Open source in South Korea
  3. 3. Open source in South Korea  People tend to think Open source is free!!!  “Why do I have to pay for Open source?” 3
  4. 4. Open source in South Korea  People tend to think Open source is foreign product!  Government should consider proper portion between foreign products and domestic products because they have the right to promote domestic products.  Some domestic software companies in South Korea regard Open source as their enemy!!! 4
  5. 5. Open source in South Korea  People tend to think Open source has low quality than proprietary software.  They don’t even think Android and Linux have better quality than other commercial OS. 5
  6. 6. Open source in South Korea  People tend to think security of Open source software is vulnerable to attack.  Some people think they could attack if they know source code of a system. 6
  7. 7. Open source in South Korea  People tend to think Open source has poor service.  In terms of clients, service like maintenance or upgrade is very important when choosing software for their service.  Commercial Open source software companies should be required. 7
  8. 8. Open source in South Korea  Sometimes, clients who’re using Open source want to hide the fact that they’ using Open source.  Companies who’re using Open source tend to hide the fact when they do their business because using Open source seems like that they don’t have enough technologies.  Open source should be open, but it sometimes become secrecy in South Korea. 8
  9. 9. However, it’s changing little by little…
  10. 10. Open source policies in South Korea
  11. 11. Open source policies in South Korea  In South Korea, Open Source Software Competence Plaza(of National IT Industry Promotion Agency under Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning) takes charge of Open source policies for promotion, marketing, incubating, and funding.  From 2004, test projects to use Open source software were conducted and Linux started being used by Government and public organizations.  From 2008, there started some policies to make better Open source software eco system throughout enhancement of software production, enlargement of market base, creation of Open source demand, and international cooperation.  Korea Open Source Software Association established in 1999 is an organization for software companies using Open source and invigorating Open source market in South Korea.  Supporting international marketing(Global exhibition, Marketing consultant, etc.)  Trying to raise low awareness of Open source projects, license policy, and so on  Providing consulting service about how to use Open source software  Supporting Open source communities  Communities(OSGeo Korea Chapter, KAOS-G, etc) 11
  12. 12. Open source policies in South Korea  Detailed guideline of 2013 budget proposal by Ministry of Strategy and Finance  It was very ambiguous in 2012, but it became more specific in 2013. 2012 Guideline 2013 Guideline Detailed Guideline (1) Device purchase cost and rent o Software purchase cost <new> Detailed Guideline (1) Device purchase cost and rent o Software purchase cost • When purchasing commercial software, it is recommended to consider using Open source software in terms of total cost. ~~~~~ ~~~~~ (3) System maintenance cost o Open source software maintenance cost <new> (3) System maintenance cost o Open source software maintenance cost • In order to receive necessary service for Open source software operation, consider necessary service level and items and make budgets at a flat rate throughout quotations and refer Open source software maintenance service guideline. 12
  13. 13. Open source GIS policies in South Korea  MOLIT(Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport) in in charge of most GIS such as surveying, mapping, and so on.  added “Open source GIS” into one of their action plans of 5th National Spatial Information Policy.  It seems Government has changed their mind from hostile to favorable toward Open source GIS. 7 Action Plans of 5th National Spatial Information Policy 1. Constructing high quality GIS data and opening expansion of high quality GIS data 2. Invigorating GIS convergence industry 3. Enhancing platform service based on spatial big data 4. Promoting GIS convergence R&D ~~~~ Developing Open source GIS ~~~~ 5. Enhancing cooperative GIS system and usability expansion 6. Nurturing creative and talented people in GIS field 7. Establishing GIS convergence promotion system  Open source GIS planning project by KARI(Korean Aerospace Research Institute) has been conducted in order to find appropriate Open source GIS project or service suitable for Korean market and people. 13
  14. 14. SWOT Analysis of Open source GIS in South Korea Strengths Weaknesses      Freely available core technologies and useful tools  Flexible license policy  Technologies complying to international standards  Relatively low price  Good quality and performance Low brand power Small market Lack of package level Lack of professionals and trainings for Open source GIS Opportunities Threats  Government support for developing software industry and domestic GIS business  Well-developed domestic IT industry  Growth of Open source and Open source GIS market  Improving global position of domestic software  NO dominant global Open source GIS player  SI(System Integration) centered domestic software industry environment  Small size of domestic GIS software companies  Global GIS software companies’ dominant position  False awareness that Open source is free  Suspicion of the quality and security of Open source GIS 14
  15. 15. Enhancing Strengths and Opportunities Strengths  Synergy effect throughout convergence of domestic excellent technologies and research of Open source GIS core technologies  Developing various applications and service using Open source GIS  Freely available core technologies and useful tools  Flexible license policy  Technologies complying to international standards  Relatively low price  Good quality and performance  Inducing Government’s active support  Considering ways how to converge domestic advanced IT technologies  Plan for global expansion with Global companies  Preoccupying Open source GIS market throughout analyzing global Open source GIS trends Opportunities  Government support for developing software industry and domestic GIS business  Well-developed domestic IT industry  Growth of Open source and Open source GIS market  Improving global position of domestic software  NO dominant global Open source GIS player 15
  16. 16. Overcoming Weaknesses and Threats Weaknesses  Researching marketing strategy of Open source GIS  Trying to improve the awareness of Open source GIS  Training for Open source GIS professionals and people’s interests  Product development and service planning using Open source GIS     Low brand power Small market Lack of package level Lack of professionals and trainings for Open source GIS Threats  Trying to change people’s stereotype that Open source is free  Verifying security and quality of Open source GIS based on objective facts throughout various researches  SI(System Integration) centered domestic software industry environment  Small size of domestic GIS software companies  Global GIS software companies’ dominant position  False awareness that Open source is free  Suspicion of the quality and security of Open source GIS 16
  17. 17. Open source GIS Cases in South Korea
  18. 18. Interactive Weather Chart  Mobile Forecaster Weather Monitoring and Analyzing system currently used by KMA(Korean Meteorological Administration) weather forecasters  This system uses GeoServer as a map server, PostGIS as database and OpenLayers for display.  This system usually generates more than five thousand weather charts per day based on 70 million spatial data which is about 70 GB. In short, this system handles more than 70 GB to generate over five thousand weather charts every day using OpenSource GIS. 18
  19. 19.
