== Introduction to the Open Source Geospatial Foundation Wiki ==
  
 +
This is the community Wiki of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. Please refer to [http://www.osgeo.org/ the official web site] for official documents and policies. This Wiki is the place where documents such as committee notes, discussion on software projects, and proposals can be created collaboratively.

See [[Getting Started]] for how to dive in and get involved. We have [[Local Chapters]], which work regionally and in other languages. We also have many active [[Mailing Lists]] for discussions. Take a moment to visit our [[Library]]. We have a list of email [[Contacts]] for various projects and functions.
  
== 1 About China OSGEO ==

The OSGeo has an [http://www.osgeo.org/about official structure] but the movement is much larger. You are free to join us and add yourself to this [[:Category:OSGeo_Member | OSGeo Member List]].
  
Open Source Geospatial software (i.e. GRASS, GDAL, MapGuide and Mapserver) has become quite competitive with proprietary GIS in recent years. OSGEO is such a global non-profit organization dedicating to global collaboration on supporting, building and promoting highest-quality open source geospatial software.

The China Chapter of OSGEO is formed by Chinese Active Users of Open Source Geospatial Software, hosted by National Remote Sensing Center of China, and co-sponsored by Autodesk Software (China) Co. Ltd. China OSGEO cooperates closely with OSGEO Board aiming at promoting the use and development of OSGEO projects in China. It tries to serve anyone interested in Open Source GIS and related issues, and to cover all the activities associated with Open Source GIS in China.

Introduction to the Open Source Geospatial Foundation Wiki

This is the community Wiki of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. Please refer to the official web site for official documents and policies. This Wiki is the place where documents such as committee notes, discussion on software projects, and proposals can be created collaboratively.

See Getting Started for how to dive in and get involved. We have Local Chapters, which work regionally and in other languages. We also have many active Mailing Lists for discussions. Take a moment to visit our Library. We have a list of email Contacts for various projects and functions.

The OSGeo has an official structure but the movement is much larger. You are free to join us and add yourself to this OSGeo Member List.

Committees

Committees are part of the official structure of OSGeo. This is where the work gets done. Committees meet on the IRC on #osgeo or use conference calls. For a list of scheduled or regularly scheduled meetings of many of the committees check the Foundation Calendar. From the committees' pages you will find the missions, names of the people involved, and links to the working documents.

Informal participation in committees via mailing list, Wiki contributions and meeting attendance is encouraged by all interested parties!
