Introduction

OSGeo Advocates are authoritative OSGeo personalities who have volunteered to talk on behalf of the OSGeo foundation. Advocates should be able to speak well, even better if they are entertaining.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of conferences around the world which have an interest in seeing presentations from authoritative speakers, with deep insights into topics related to Open Source Geospatial Software. Luckily, OSGeo is fortunate to draw extensive membership from around the world, and has access to such authoritative figures within most countries.

Process for becoming an OSGeo Advocate

Anyone fitting one of the OSGeo Advocate categories, may put themselves forward as an OSGeo Advocate. To do so, you will need to:

  • Create an OSGeo wiki account, to edit this wiki (See "login" link in top right of this page).
  • Add a portrait photo of yourself using the Upload file link in left margin in each page.
  • Create a new wiki page http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/User:YourOSGeoWikiUserName, and populate as per User:Template, (copy and paste from the source so that you see comments in the template).
  • You can then add your profile on this wiki page, under your Region:Country, names ordered alphabetically by First name, using the following:
 {{User:<YourOSGeoWikiUserName>}}

Annual Refresh of Advocate list

  • The list of OSGeo Advocates will be refreshed annually, after the annual voting of OSGeo Charter Members. This will be achieved by removing lapsed Advocates, then moving all Current Advocates into the Past Advocate section. All Advocates will be invited to update their profile, and move their profile back into the current Advocates section.

Adam Steer

I’m a freelance consultant available to work on strategic and technical geospatial projects, with a good helping of reproducible science in the mix.

I have a doctorate in surveying technology from the University of Tasmania, based on estimating sea ice thickness at high resolution by combining airborne LiDAR, digital photogrammetry, field observations (yes! I love to drill holes in ice!), and upward looking sonar from an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.

I'm very strongly motivated to promote the use of open geospatial tools for developing geospatial strategies, research and development - removing barriers to serious data analysis.

I also like to ski, climb rocks and ride mountain bikes as fast as possible. And sit under trees and watch the sky.

I’m an OSGeo charter member, and have helped as part of the local organising committee for FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2018 and 2019.

I graduated as a geographer several datum changes ago, and remember clearly discovering the magic of gdal in my search to become digital and shpless. Now, 40 years later, I don’t know anyone that can’t find their way through the world using mobile mapping tools.

At a MapServer user meeting in Ottawa in 2004, I found and embraced a vibrant, innovative and sociable community of such diversity, everyone had a place, and a role in growing a movement.

As a participant and presenter at several FOSS4G conferences, I know how passionate OSGeo is about our community. In whatever small way I may have contributed, I have gained far more in return.

I am particularly interested in engaging community in land use decision making, and in mapping the negotiated and overlapping jurisdiction of colonial and indigenous world views.

I am fortunate to call the Yukon home, but I still stay connected with my OSGeo family everywhere. I value and respect diversity; and honour those who give of themselves to further the dreams of others.

Experience: OSGeo user.png

I've been using Open Source GeoSpatial software since 2003, originally with TAB2TAB. In 2005 I setup Astun Technology with the goal of being the leading Open Source GeoSpatial business in the UK.

Working as part of a wide community of developers and users has enriched Astun, so we want to put something back. Astun is committed to supporting the community whether through sponsorship of the OSGeo Foundation or providing support to local chapters such as OSGeo:UK and the events they organise such as the FOSS4G:UK conference and QGIS User Groups.

I believe that the community needs to be well funded to be sustainable and in 2017 Astun contributed in excess of £10,000 to various Open Source projects as sponsorship and / or funding code development. Astun also contributed over 90 man days of our staff’s time in helping with events, code sprints, hacks and other activities.

Developing open source software is fun, to make sure it's being used is even more fun!

My last pieces of code (some small Mapserver contributions) date from somewhere around 2002. Since 2012 involved in the Dutch local chapter, since summer 2013 as chairman of the local board. Co-organizer of the 2013 "OSGeoNL dag" (the yearly dutch local meeting), with 125 participants. Members of the FOSS4G-2016 LOC.

Always looking for opportunities to coöperate with other geo-spatial organisations, including governmental and commercial organisations.

Small detail: Ten years ago I've been in the board of the Dutch ArcGIS user group for 5 years.

Language(s): English; Italian; German; French; Spanish; Romansh
Personal Description : I am an open source advocate, consultant, teacher, and developer. My background is in geography with a specialization in geographic information science. I live in Switzerland in a small Romansh speaking mountain village where I love scrambling around the mountains to enjoy the feeling of freedom it gives me. I’m a very communicative person, I fluently speak Italian, German, French English, and Spanish and love traveling.

I work as director of OPENGIS.ch which I founded in 2011. Since 2015 I share the company ownership with Matthias Kuhn. At OPENGIS.ch LLC we (4 superstar devs and myself) develop, train and consult our client on any aspect related to QGIS.

My first QGIS (to be correct for that time QuantumGIS) ever was “Simon (0.6)” during my BSc when the University of Zurich was teaching us proprietary products and I started looking around for Open Source alternatives. In 2008, when starting my MSc, I made the definitive switch to Ubuntu and I started working more and more with QGIS Metis (0.11) and ended developing some plugins and part of Globe as my Masters' thesis. Since three years the University of Zurich invites me to hold two seminars on Entrepreneurship and Open Source. In November 2011 I attended my first Hackfest in Zürich where I started porting all QGIS dependencies and developing QGIS for Android under a Google Summer of Code. A couple of years and a lot of work later QField was born. Since then I’ve always tried to attend at least to one Hackfest per year to be able to feel first hand the strong bonds within our very welcoming community.

In 2013 I was lucky enough to have a release named after a suggestion I saved you all from having QGIS 2.0 - Hönggerberg and giving you instead QGIS 2.0 - Dufour

Besides my long story with QGIS as a user and passionate advocate, I have a long story as QGIS service provider where we are fully committed to its stability, feature richness and sustainable development. Furthermore, as a consultant, I am lucky enough to be sent now and then to spread the QGIS goodness in less fortunate countries.

I was graduated in civil engineering in 2006 at the UPTC. On the university I saw the GIS world, into an optative matter at the end of the career. Just after receiving my title, I worked in a project supported by the European Community in 2007, with the goal of protect natural resources in my region using geomatics. In that project I learnt the power of GIS in the management of natural resources. Then, I decided continue my academical preparation in a selflearning way, studying French and GIS.

My first autonomous experience after my graduation it was to translate from French to Castilian, the documentation of SavGIS, a GIS software developped by the IRD (Institute de Recherche pour le Developpement), a scientific institution for international cooperation of the French Government.

At the beginning of 2009 I discovered the world of GNU/Linux systems and since that time I am a totally satisfied user and advocate of Libre Software. I've had the chance of use operative systems like Venenux, OSGeoLive, all the Ubuntu's family and SLAX, among others, but for me Trisquel is the best option, because it only uses Libre Software and let me work with all Libre GIS Software I need, like GRASS, QuantumGIS (QGIS), gvSIG and Kosmo, OpenJUMP, Viking, GPSPrune, Marble among many others.

At the end of 2010 I had the opportunity of travel to Caracas (Venezuela) to the 2nd Latin American and Caribean Users Journey of gvSIG and to the 1st Peruvian Simposium on Remote Sensing and GIS in Lima (Perú) to expose two works related with FOSS GIS.

At the end of 2011 I found Geopublisher (GP) and AtlasStyler (AS). I translated its interface to Castilian, guided by Stefan Alfons Tzeggai, developer of those two programs. Besides, I wrote a 130 pages handbook and I made some video tutorials about the use of GP. Due to my experience translating and documenting GP, I became an expert making digital multimedia atlases and I begun to work searching for its application in the resolution of social problems in my country.

In may 2012 I was invited by Stefan Tzeggai to form part of Wikisquare, the team that offers professional support for GP. In september 2012 I traveled to Mérida (Venezuela) to expose two works in the 2nd Congreso Venezolano de Sistemas de Información Geográfica, COVESIG, and I lived in that city for two months.

At the end of 2013 I decided begin to travel for the north of South America in order to spread my experience and knowledge in geomatics by means of libre software. In october 2013 I participated in the 4th Congreso Internacional Itinerante de Software Libre in Ibarra, Guaranda and Quito. After that, I went to Tumbes (Perú) between january and march 2013 and then I came back to Ecuador. In abril 2014 I participated in the FLISOL 2014 with a conference and a workshop in the Universidad Nacional del Chimborazo, at the Riobamba city.
