2012-2013 OSGeo Education and Curriculum Current Initiatives

1) Continue to build up our educational material federated content databases

OSGeo edu's educational content metadatabase -- a place for metadata and links to external material we are posting on our own websites
University of Nottingham's educational content database (ELOGeo) -- a place for us to store education content (the source code) to share

Webinar Series

2) Continue to expand the ICA-OSGeo Network

This effort is led by Suchith Anand at the University of Nottingham, UK.

In September 2011, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and the International Cartographic Association (ICA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of developing on a global basis collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and government organizations in open source GIS software and data. The MoU aims to provide expertise and support for the establishment of Open Source Geospatial Laboratories and Research Centres across the world for supporting development of open-source geospatial software technologies, training and expertise. It also aims to provide support for building-up and supporting development of open source GIS teaching and training materials, joint organization of open source GIS events, workshops through the ICA network for wider participation globally etc. Details at MOU_ICA.

Updated Leaflet Map of the ICA-OSGeo Network Nodes by Vasek and Anna

Leaflet Map of the ICA-OSGeo Network Nodes by Luca Delucchi, June 2013, and the related application

It is really good to see our rapidly expanding global spread.

Feel free to join the mailing list http://lists.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/ica-osgeo-labs to follow the discussions among the participants of this initiative.

The current members of the ICA-OSGeo Network are (please add WGS84 decimal coordinates longitude,latitude, if you don't add the coordinate following this simple rules your institution will not show on the ICA-OSGeo Map) :

The key requirements for establishing a local OSGL are:

(A) Both parties should work for the vision of the ICA-OSGeo MoU to develop collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and government organizations in open source GIS software and data in the future.

(B) Someone at your institution or organization should have a strong Geospatial knowledge and vision to lead this activity and build a team of people, locally.

(C) There should be a website established for your Open Source Geospatial Laboratory listing current research, people, and training information. This web presence will allow the other nodes in the network and others to understand and promote your local efforts around research and teaching of open source geospatial technologies and approaches.

From our end, we will promote the initiative widely through both OSGeo and ICA channels to help build up collaboration opportunities for the future. We will also do a joint press release to announce the initiative and start building collaborations. A primary collaborative initiative continues to be the creation and maintenance of shared open access educational resources (for example the ELOGeo platform). We will also add the info of all labs in the Open Geospatial Lab network node site within OSGeo website so that all participating labs urls are added and linked.

We especially welcome applications from universities, educational institutes, government organisations in developing countries to help develop capacity building in geospatial education by establishing Open Source Geo Labs.
