FAQ

  • **Do I need to be a FOSS GIS guru?** It will help if you know your way around the FOSS GIS stack, but nobody needs to be a guru.
  • **Will I earn money for doing this?** In the afterlife maybe, in this one you will probably need to part with some of your hard earned cash to cover conference fees and perhaps chip in for goodies for the stand.
  • **Who will pay for the stand.** We are looking for donors.

Social Activities

Lets get together for a OSGeo Africa Chapter meetup while we are there!
