From OSGeo
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is a collection of ideas to be discussed at the September F2F meeting in Denver, Colorado at FOSS4G.

To start off we need to understand the existing strategic vision of OSGeo. Then we need to encourage a dialog on where OSGeo is headed and what activities it should undertake to promote and advance OSGeo-related projects.
