OSGeo Local Chapters and Interest Groups
OSGeo is starting to develop plans for Local Chapters and Interest Groups. If you are interested please go to the corresponding pages and add your thoughts, ideas and relevant links. If you think that another name would be better please suggest it here!
- LOCAL GROUPS instead of 'regional like minded'.
- LANGUAGES instead of []'Interest groups'(and +'Interest groups'/etc for unclasifieds).
- ORGANIZATIONS/BRANCHES instead of 'local chapters' for the geographic or/and political/administrative divisions which can share continent.osgeo.org as an extra addon..
Maps for that/this page will help the view!
