This is the community Wiki of the [http://www.osgeo.org/ Open Source Geospatial Foundation]. Please refer to the official web site at http://www.osgeo.org/ for stable documents and policies. This Wiki is the place where documents can be created collaboratively (ie. adoption processes, user hints, suggestions, committee notes, etc.). All web pages that are adopted as official documents will be moved to a CVS or SVN and subsequently appear at the [http://www.osgeo.org/ OSGeo] web site, which is the only official place for documents.

== China Chapter of OSGEO ==


1 About China OSGEO

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. 1.1 Mission China OSGEO carries out numerous tasks addressed by OSGEO Foundation through its three committees – Supervise Committee, Executive Committee and Technical Committee.

(1)Supervise Committee:  Officially representing China OSGEO to liaise with OSGEO Board, OSGEO Branches, Chinese Government Departments, or Academic Groups etc.  Taking responsibility for the strategies in planning and developing China OSGEO, and networking with organizations to enlist participation and support for OSGEO.  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.
