== OSGeo Google Summer of Code 2018 ==
 +
 
 +
The [http://www.osgeo.org Open Source Geospatial Foundation] would like to extend a welcome to all SoC students. On this page you will find links to a host of ideas organized by project. You will find ideas ranging from the depths of computer science graph theory to the heights of visualization. One thing all these ideas have in common is lots and lots of spatial data.
 +
 
 +
These ideas are '''*only*''' to motivate you, and serve as example of the kind of hills we want to charge up. Your own ideas are more than welcomed - they are encouraged. We view you as the next wave of open source leaders and the future of the geospatial industry; show us what you've got!
 +
 
 +
* '''Students: check out the [[Google Summer of Code Recommendations for Students]] page. If you need more information on how to apply you can contact all the mentors via the OSGeo-SoC mailing list''' ([[#How to get in contact via mailing lists|see below]]) And look at [https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/help/responsibilities GSoC Roles and Responsibilities ] to understand a successfull teamwork and interplay of project, mentors and students.
 +
 
 +
* There is a [https://developers.google.com/open-source/soc/resources/flyers Google SoC flyer] to look at and post in appropriate places.
 +
 
 +
* Ok, [[OSGeo]] is involved in working with maps and things, but what kind of projects does it really do? Have a look at the [http://planet.osgeo.org/ live blog feed] to see what people are working on right now.
 +
 
 +
* Mentors, there's an additional link providing some tips and specifying your responsibilities on the main OSGeo [[Google_Summer_of_Code_2017_Administrative]] wiki page.

If you are an OSGeo project lead about to add your page, <strong>please contact the GSoC admin team</strong> to let them know of your ideas page, by sending an email to [mailto:gsoc-admin@osgeo.org gsoc-admin@osgeo.org]

OSGeo Google Summer of Code 2018

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation would like to extend a welcome to all SoC students. On this page you will find links to a host of ideas organized by project. You will find ideas ranging from the depths of computer science graph theory to the heights of visualization. One thing all these ideas have in common is lots and lots of spatial data.

These ideas are *only* to motivate you, and serve as example of the kind of hills we want to charge up. Your own ideas are more than welcomed - they are encouraged. We view you as the next wave of open source leaders and the future of the geospatial industry; show us what you've got!

  • Ok, OSGeo is involved in working with maps and things, but what kind of projects does it really do? Have a look at the live blog feed to see what people are working on right now.
