  14. 14. OPEN SOURCE 14
  15. 15. OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE Open-source software (OSS) is computer software with its source code made available and licensed with a license in which the copyright holder provides the rights to study, change and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose. Open-source software is very often developed in a public, collaborative manner. A report by the Standish Group (from 2008) states that adoption of open-source software models has resulted in savings of about $60 billion per year to consumers. 15
  16. 16. Created to support and build the highest-quality open source geospatial software. Our goal is to encourage the use and collaborative development of community-led projects OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration. Open Source Geospatial Foundation 16
