  • What is the AGI view on Open? Well its the view of our members - our SIGs have been actively involved in bringing together the main players in each of their interest groups. The SIGS form at the request of the members and are run by the members for the members with similar interests. more recent ones have been the creat ion of the inspire sig formed from an Action Working Group, and the BIM sig which has proved very popular. One of the common threads in these groups has been how can Open help the community, and help members understand the benefits and downsides through experiences in particular business areas or regions
  • Open Source Tools - can be integrated with proprietary solutions - Make reference to MapAction hackathon organised by AGI Tech SIG. A business may base its GI model on Open, or it may be an entry point as a free or low cost option. Many of the major players are also using open technologies such as Python within the software. And then theres certain data formats such as the shapefile which although a proprietry format have an open architecture which allows anyone to create reader/writers. GML/KML this is open too and many software vendors have incorporated into their software as reader/writers
  • Firstly, let me tell you about the AGI
    I am sure you have heard of us, but the AGI is a membership organisation for GI professionals.
    We ...paste in bits from the 500 words Abi submitted
    Part of the way we do this is also through events... speaking of events...
