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 the All Members page.

In November of 2006 the OSGeo accomplished a major milestone with the addition of a full time Executive Director. Tyler Mitchell was selected by the board of directors and will help to coordinate and lead the efforts of our organization. Find out more at Tyler Mitchell's Blog .

Committees

The committees are part of the official structure of OSGeo. Committees meet on the IRC or use conference calls. IRC logs of previous meetings are often available. 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.

Although committees are official and there is an official list of members please feel free to participate!

Proposals and Other Working Pages

This section is for new proposals which need publicity, or are not yet assigned to any committee or need broader collaboration. Once the entry here has done its work, it should be moved to a more appropriate place.

Check out the Special:Recentchanges page also (a link in the navigation menu on the left).
