SharedGeo is pleased to announce that after a six-year application process, our shared funding project GeoMOOSE has become officially sanctioned by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, or OSGeo. GeoMOOSE went through the OSGeo Incubation process, which included a review of software licensing, the creation of a community-run Project Steering Committee, and the addition of promotional support from OSGeo. The project was facilitated with support from OSGeo volunteer, Jody Garnett, the GeoMOOSE project mentor. As officially sanctioned software, GeoMOOSE will be a featured project on the OSGeo website and joins MapServer as only the second program with Minnesota origins to be blessed by OSGeo. GeoMOOSE software is downloadable for free, and is useable under an OSI-certified open source license.
