amazing people”
GeoForAll – Making geospatial education and
opportunities accessible to all
Thanks to Daria Svidzinska for creating the space-time map of
GeoForAll
Same age

GeoForAll happened
because of Serendipity
GeoForAll is based on Open Principles in
Science and Education
• Free and Open source software
• Open data
• Open standards
• Open access to research publications
• Open education resources
Why - Social Responsibility
Making resources including software and
data openly available offers an opportunity
for knowledge to be shared widely so as to
increase learning opportunities.
Example – Collaborating with educational initiatives like gvSIG Batoví

Why is Openness Important?
Openness is fundamental in helping achieve SDG 2030
aims
Hunger
Poverty
Innovation
www.godan.info
How can we
ensure Zero
Hunger for all?
http://www.godan.info/documents/godan-success-stories-issue-1
How can we use technological
developments and Open Data
to help the small hold farmers?
AgMarknet: Surpassing the middleman (http://agmarknet.gov.in/)
Develop an innovative solution
to reduce waste and achieve
ZERO HUNGER
By bringing together teams of students and
researchers to find solutions for local farming in
growing cities, using open agriculture and
nutrition data.
Teams should use:
some aspect of the OpenCitySmart Design
and
 NASA’s open source virtual globe technology,
WebWorldWind as a source of open data.
Details of the open data tools can be accessed
through:

An example of a Food Security Application
http://www.trilogis.it/eLocust3D/
The goal of this application is to help FAO
(Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United
Nations) providing support to national locust
operators in Africa and Middle East.
Desert locusts are a huge problem for the
population and due to their ability to change their
behaviours and habits. These locusts are hard to
limit as they form swarms and move rapidly (about
20km/h). Moreover, they can consume (in 1km²
swarm) as much food as 35,000 people eat in a
single day.

Education + Empowerment = GeoForAll
Science is NOT proprietary!
Transparency of research is fundamental for scientific
advancement (no “black boxes” or proprietary barriers) and
geospatial science should always be open.
Vision 2030
Science should always be open
Geospatial Science should be fully build on Open Principles
Transparency of research is fundamental (no black boxes or proprietary barriers).
Geospatial Science = Open Geospatial Science
Open Geospatial Labs are being established worldwide to scale up research and
teaching globally as part of the ICA-OSGeo MoU http://bookshop.europa.eu/en/open-innovation-open-science-open-to-the-world-pbKI0416263
STEM education using Open Principles
Students learning map production using free and open technologies like QGIS
and open data (Photos thanks to Edward and GeoForAll colleagues in Tanzania)
We want to create opportunities for high quality science
education and empowerment for all economic backgrounds
We will create opportunities for high quality science education
and empowerment for all economic backgrounds
Thanks to Work done by our Sergio Acosta Y
Lara and our GeoForAll colleagues in Uruguay
School learners experiencing
geoinformatics at GeoForAll lab
at the University of Pretoria,
August 2016
Thank you to
Victoria
Rautenbach
for making
this possible
Wealth Inequalities are increasing
Billions of families are struggling for basic human needs and
basic facilities (food, clean water, sanitation, access to
electricity, education opportunities) hence the global focus
on UN SDGs very important priority
We want to ensure that Future Scientists and change makers
can be from here also

Why- Open Principles in Science
and Education?
 helps create quality STEM
education opportunities for all
helps develop creative and open
minds in students which is critical
for building open innovation
 contributes to building up Open
Knowledge for the benefit of the
whole society and for our future
generations.
Over 12,000 schools
About 6 million students
About 200,000 teachers
https://itschool.gov.in/glance.php
Why Openness in Education Important? Good example of impact
of openness in Education from my state Kerala in India
A Small Circle in Asia Contains More Than Half the World's
Population – But How many GI Scientists are from here?
http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/earth/geophysics/small-circle-asia-more-half-worlds-population.htm
For decades high cost proprietary GIS reduced the education and
entrepreneurship opportunities in GIS for the economically poor.
But now Thanks to the Open Source Geospatial Foundation and all OSGeo
volunteers , these inequalities for access to geospatial software and learning
opportunities is changing fast. It is the efforts of OSGeo volunteers that
helped make tools like QGIS available free to all schools worldwide
forever.
Geospatial Technology –
Why?
Future is shaped by the decisions made by everyone everyday
Thank you to all OSGeo volunteers for your work that has made
possible Geo education opportunities accessible for all
Be our GeoAmbassadors and let us pledge and work for
open principles in science and education to eradicate
extreme poverty and enable shared prosperity for all

  • 21. An example of a Food Security Application http://www.trilogis.it/eLocust3D/ The goal of this application is to help FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) providing support to national locust operators in Africa and Middle East. Desert locusts are a huge problem for the population and due to their ability to change their behaviours and habits. These locusts are hard to limit as they form swarms and move rapidly (about 20km/h). Moreover, they can consume (in 1km² swarm) as much food as 35,000 people eat in a single day.

Editor's Notes

  1. Godan exists to respond to particular challenges and foster innovations to meet them
  2. Local Farming is an important aspect in sustainability and hence GODAN is launching the NASA-GODAN Challenge welcoming students and researchers worldwide to come up with  innovative ideas (around a collaboration on agriculture and nutrition data openness) like: mapping  for optimal  linking of local farming community directly with potential customers tools for visualizing spatio-temporal aspects of local farming tools for helping reducing wastage (for example linking with local food banks)  etc. for helping reduce wastage and find solutions to Zero Hunger aim.
