== Introduction to the Open Source Geospatial Foundation Wiki ==
  
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.  
+
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.
  
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.
+
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.
  
== 1.1 Mission ==
+
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]].
  
China OSGEO carries out numerous tasks addressed by OSGEO Foundation through its three committees – Supervise Committee, Executive Committee and Technical Committee.

<div style="margin:0; margin-top:10px; margin-right:10px; border:1px solid #dfdfdf; padding:0em 1em 1em 1em; background-color:#f8f8ff;">
 Officially representing China OSGEO to liaise with OSGEO Board, OSGEO Branches, Chinese Government Departments, or Academic Groups etc.
+
=== Committees ===
 Taking responsibility for the strategies in planning and developing China OSGEO, and networking with organizations to enlist participation and support for OSGEO.
+
[[:Category:Committees | Committees]] are part of the official structure of OSGeo. This is where the work gets done. Committees meet on the [[IRC]] on [irc://irc.freenode.net/osgeo #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.
 Committing financial accounting of running China OSGEO, i.e. budget application, financing donation.
+
(2)Executive Committee:
+
 Creating and managing China OSGEO official website (http://china.osgeo.org/), for example, daily updating, meeting announcement, workshops and training, FAQ, mailing lists and wiki.
+
 Taking care of China Directory Listing and providing the members with networking opportunities for support and job opportunities.
+
 Increasing awareness about open source GIS solutions and promoting adoption in education, research, industry, government, and non-profit organizations though local technical supports.
+
 Encouraging local people to contribute to OSGEO projects or to release their outcomes as open source software with financial or practical assistance.
+
(3)Technical Committee:
+
 Software Internationalization and Localization
+
 Development of prototype applications to demonstrate Open Source geospatial capabilities to local and regional audiences
+
 Software Packaging and Customization for local and regional needs
+
 Training, Support and Development of e-Learning Contents in local languages
+
 Supporting open standards and open access to geospatial data
+
  
China OSGEO may not be limited to the above tasks, but all the activities should not be contrary or detrimental to the Mission and Objectives of OSGEO.
+
Informal participation in committees via mailing list, Wiki contributions and meeting attendance is encouraged by all interested parties!

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!
