Description

A presentation I made at the European Geosciences Union's General Assembly in Vienna, Austria in April 2014 on the OSGeo/ICA "Geo4All" activity. This was at an OSGeo-sponsored "town hall" meeting to discuss open source geo in the geosciences.

Mission Making geospatial education accessible to all

The need Very few universities/educational institutions in developing/poor countries currently are able to run GIS courses High cost of software Lack of skilled staff Lack of freely available training materials

ICA- OSGeo MoU Prof. Georg Gartner (ICA President) and Arnulf Christl (OSGeo President) shake hands after signing the MoU at Intergeo 2011 in Germany (Sep 2011)

ICA is the world authoritative body for cartography and geographic information science

OSGeo Product development statistics 2008 Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) established in Feb 2006 OSGeo is the leader of Open Source Geospatial and high impact community

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 For details contact: Sergio Acosta y Lara sacosta@dntopografia.gub.uy Alvaro Anguix aanguix@gvsig.com https://gvsig.org/web/home/projects/gvsig­educa
