SharedGeo Supports FOSS4G North America
In support of the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) North America event that will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 22-24, SharedGeo has agreed to provide contract services as deemed necessary by the event Local Organizing Committee. Under terms of the agreement signed between the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and SharedGeo in late August, SharedGeo will arrange and contract for facilities and professional services that are needed to make the event possible. SharedGeo Executive Director Steve Swazee commented: “We are exceptionally pleased that the world’s preeminent education organization for sponsoring development of free open source software for geospatial has entrusted SharedGeo to act as the enablement organization for next year’s North American Conference. Given FOSS4G efforts support non-profits, units of government, and wide variety of other situations where cost would be a deterrent to effective geospatial solutions, we believe our mission to support the common good, and that of OSGeo, align very closely.”
Details of the event are expected to be released in early December on the FOSS4G North America website.
