  2. 2. Introductions • Australia • GeoTools • Founded 1994 • GeoServer • Integration • uDig • End to End • OSGeo Charter Member – Solutions / Services – Incubation committee – Support Open Source Geospatial Foundation 2
  3. 3. Did you Read the Title Page? • Creative Commons License! • This is worth getting excited about: • Not just for books and presentations • Governments around the world pushing to have public information available – 2008 Decree for Brazil – Chile is working on it – Australia is in process Open Source Geospatial Foundation 3
  4. 4. Open Source GeoSpatial Foundation • Open Source – DOD Memo – OSGeo Japan • GeoSpatial – Standards • Foundation – History and Organization Open Source Geospatial Foundation 4
  5. 5. Open Source Geospatial Foundation • Non Profit • Founded in 2006 (not the first attempt!) • Mandate to support and promote open source geospatial • Provides Common Branding Open Source Geospatial Foundation 5
  6. 6. OSGeo Organization Board of Directors Executive Officers Director Local Committees Projects Chapters Members Open Source Geospatial Foundation 6

  8. 8. Local Chapters • Local (or Language) Promotion of OSGeo – Presence at Conferences and Workshops – Networking (ie beer) • Seventeen official local chatpers • Seven more in formation – Brazilian OSGeo Chapter – Aust-NZ Chapter OSGeo ? Brasil Open Source Geospatial Foundation 8
  9. 9. Momentum • steady stream of chatter on Internet Relay Chat #osgeo • Annual “Free and Open Source Software for Geomatics”(FOSS4G) conference mark's year end • Initial batch of projects allowed the foundation to cut its teeth – Open Source – Open Development • Additional projects joining now – PostGIS is now accepted into incubation – GeoServer is now accepted into incubation Open Source Geospatial Foundation 9
  10. 10. Department of Defence Memo • October 16 memo clarifying guidance regarding OSS • OSS meets the definition of “commercial computer software” • Market research for software should include OSS • Positive aspects of OSS – Continuous broad peer-review – Ability to modify software .. to respond more rapidly – Operated and maintained by multiple vendors – Mitigate risk of cost growth due to licensing – Sharing maintenance to reduce total cost Open Source Geospatial Foundation 10
  11. 11. And a few Tricky bits • Must ensure that the plan for software support is adequate (e.g., commercial or Government program office support) • many open source licenses permit the user to modify OSS for internal use without being obligated to distribute source code to the public • Release to the public when – It is in the Governments interest to do so – The government has the rights to do so – Release is not restricted by law Open Source Geospatial Foundation 11
  12. 12. Geospatial and Standards • Allow us to work together! • We tend to follow OGC Standards • OGC uses open source “Reference Implementations” and has a memorandum of understanding WMTS Publication Catalog Database GML KML GeoRSS Disk Array Application Server Information DMZ Enterprise Services Open Source Geospatial Foundation 12
