OSGeo History
History 1
• Formed in 2006
• Loosely based on Apache Model (because they are Amazing)
• Great focus on users and community
• How it works
• Officers: President,Treasure, Secretary
• Board of Directors
• Director - single employee to do a lot of the things
• Money - Sponsor based (helping provide that single employee)
History 2
• Restructured in 2013
• Adjust for reality of less sponsorship
• Pause in financing as we sorted out not-for-profit / non-profit status
• How it works
• Officers: President,Treasure, Secretary
• Board of Directors
• Approach: volunteer focused
• Money: Low-capital
History 3
• Refresh OSGeo with a newVision (this talk)
• Some great (harsh) feedback from our membership
• Finances healthy enough to back our volunteers with resources
• How it works
• Officers: President,Treasure, Secretary
• Board of Directors
• Approach:Volunteer led initiatives
• Money: Sponsorship to enable community excellence
The challenge
osgeo-discuss
• OSGeo is transparent - resulting in rather honest feedback
• OSGeo lacks "leadership"
• Shout out to Darrell Fuhriman -Thanks!
• Rated objectives according to progress
• Many objectives could not be measured
• Out of date with current fashions.

(Projects no longer ask for hosting)
• Volunteers have not shown interest in pursuing all goals

(to promote freely available geodata)

Board Face to Face meeting
• Meeting in January, in part to address this challenge
• define new leadership
• revised vision and mission
• defined aspirational objectives
• for the next ten years
• strategic objectives
• measurable objectives for yearly strategic plan
OSGeo Board 2016
The next ten years
Vision
Empower everyone with open source geospatial
Mission
Foster global adoption of open geospatial
technology by being an inclusive software
foundation devoted to an open philosophy and
participatory community driven development.
Aspirational Objectives
• Foundation objectives revised to match what we do today

and more importantly who we want to be tomorrow
• These are not intended to be measurable

(if they are we did it wrong)
• Measurable "strategic objectives" are saved for

the annual strategic plan
Internal Objective
provide resources for foundation projects
• Discussion
• Infrastructure? Do not need to be a Forge / GitHub
• Legal? We reach out for assistance (FSF, Eclipse Foundation)
External Objective
foster the use of open source geospatial software
• Discussion
• because really this is what it is all about
• there are so many opportunities for us to make the world better!
External Objective
encourage interoperability with

open and community standards
• Discussion
• Formal relationship with Open Geospatial Consortium
• This was extended from previous focus on Open Standards

(because we love the can-do community standards like GeoGSON)
• Remain strongly committed to open standards

(key enabler of our community)
Internal Objective
Ensure interoperability between

the foundation projects
• Discussion
• This is strongly worded! Hard to accomplish with volunteers
• But we do expect OSGeo projects to work together

(kind of embarrassing if they could not)
• Many projects cross-test as part of release process (!)
• OSGeo LIVE helps keeps everyone honest
Quality and Innovation
Encourage a high degree of quality and innovation

in foundation projects
• Discussion
• OSGeo Incubation really focuses on quality (risk adverse)
• Need a new approach if we want to focus on innovation
External Objective
Champion the use of open-source and community
participation through the development of an open
education curriculum
• Discussion
• a real passion of our community, and a real need in the academic world
• pursuing this with GeoForAll initiative showing amazing progress
• (pervious objective focused just on open education)
Internal Objective
Enable communication and cooperation

amongst OSGeo communities
• Discussion
• We have so much enthusiasm and ideas,

join forces and accomplish more
• don't code it alone - join OSGeo!
Internal/External Objective
Champion community building

through horizontal (local chapters) engagement and

through vertical (sector specific) agreements

with like- minded organizations
• Discussion
• Key strategy for our Foundation
Internal/External Objectives
Be a welcoming and inclusive worldwide

organization at all levels
• Discussion
• OSGeo is a volunteer organization - we are made of people
• Challenges code of conduct
• Diversity
Internal Objective
Celebrate excellence, openness and service

within the OSGeo community.
• Discuss
• We have amazing people and need to thank them early and often
• (helping is the most sincere form of thanks)

A New Vision for OSGeo

  • 1. A newVision for OSGeo Jody Garnett
 (Boundless)
  • 2. Introduction Jody Garnett Community Lead jgarnett@boundlessgeo.com @jodygarnett Open Source Geospatial Foundation Board Member OSGeo Incubation Chair GeoTools Project Officer Eclipse Foundation LocationTech Project Steering Committee LocationTech Technology Project Boundless Boundless provides geospatial tools and services for managing data and building applications.

  • 5. History 1 • Formed in 2006 • Loosely based on Apache Model (because they are Amazing) • Great focus on users and community • How it works • Officers: President,Treasure, Secretary • Board of Directors • Director - single employee to do a lot of the things • Money - Sponsor based (helping provide that single employee)
  • 6. History 2 • Restructured in 2013 • Adjust for reality of less sponsorship • Pause in financing as we sorted out not-for-profit / non-profit status • How it works • Officers: President,Treasure, Secretary • Board of Directors • Approach: volunteer focused • Money: Low-capital
  • 7. History 3 • Refresh OSGeo with a newVision (this talk) • Some great (harsh) feedback from our membership • Finances healthy enough to back our volunteers with resources • How it works • Officers: President,Treasure, Secretary • Board of Directors • Approach:Volunteer led initiatives • Money: Sponsorship to enable community excellence
  • 9. osgeo-discuss • OSGeo is transparent - resulting in rather honest feedback • OSGeo lacks "leadership" • Shout out to Darrell Fuhriman -Thanks! • Rated objectives according to progress • Many objectives could not be measured • Out of date with current fashions.
 (Projects no longer ask for hosting) • Volunteers have not shown interest in pursuing all goals
 (to promote freely available geodata) Darrell Fuhriman
  • 11. Board Face to Face meeting • Meeting in January, in part to address this challenge • define new leadership • revised vision and mission • defined aspirational objectives • for the next ten years • strategic objectives • measurable objectives for yearly strategic plan

  • 16. Aspirational Objectives • Foundation objectives revised to match what we do today
 and more importantly who we want to be tomorrow • These are not intended to be measurable
 (if they are we did it wrong) • Measurable "strategic objectives" are saved for
 the annual strategic plan

 (because we love the can-do community standards like GeoGSON) • Remain strongly committed to open standards
 (key enabler of our community)
  • 20. Internal Objective Ensure interoperability between
 the foundation projects • Discussion • This is strongly worded! Hard to accomplish with volunteers • But we do expect OSGeo projects to work together
 (kind of embarrassing if they could not) • Many projects cross-test as part of release process (!) • OSGeo LIVE helps keeps everyone honest
  • 21. Quality and Innovation Encourage a high degree of quality and innovation
 in foundation projects • Discussion • OSGeo Incubation really focuses on quality (risk adverse) • Need a new approach if we want to focus on innovation
  • 22. External Objective Champion the use of open-source and community participation through the development of an open education curriculum • Discussion • a real passion of our community, and a real need in the academic world • pursuing this with GeoForAll initiative showing amazing progress • (pervious objective focused just on open education)
  • 23. Internal Objective Enable communication and cooperation
 amongst OSGeo communities • Discussion • We have so much enthusiasm and ideas,
 join forces and accomplish more • don't code it alone - join OSGeo!
  • 24. Internal/External Objective Champion community building
 through horizontal (local chapters) engagement and
 through vertical (sector specific) agreements
 with like- minded organizations • Discussion • Key strategy for our Foundation
