This is page is a try to create a central index of all available Video Tutorials and Screencasts about FOSS for GIS.

As creating a central repository is not easy due to licenses, video formats and disk space we are using this page to list all pages hosting interesting videos.

please add you contribute at the bottom of the list respecting the table layout

How to do your screencast

please add your suggestions on how you did your screencast. Please try to use and suggest Free Software.




  •  ??? (any FOSS software to suggest?!?)

Where to publish your screencast

Actually main free video hosting are using a strong dowsampling that does not allow a good video quality to present screencast.

Then you'll need to find your own web hosting or a free one that can host just the video without resampling.


  • What about distribution the videos with a bittorrent-style distribution? Maybe OSGeo could provide the infrastructure for this?
