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.

Languages: Afrikaans, English

Experience: OSGeo user.png

Cameron Green is a MSc Geoinformatics student in the Department of Geography, Geoinformatics and Meteorology at the University of Pretoria and has actively been involved in OSGeo initiatives and open source technologies since 2017. In 2017, he was selected for the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Science Undergraduate Mentorship Bursary Program under Prof Serena Coetzee and Dr Victoria Rautenbach. The mentorship bursary was awarded based on academic merit and commitment. Through the program, he assisted with various administrative and technical tasks in the departments. At University, he joined the environmental society, called The Greenline Society. He served on the Executive Council for three years as the Marketing and Publications Manager (2015), Vice-Chairperson (2016) and Chairperson and Residence Director (2017). As part of the Executive Council, he had various responsibilities, such as organised and participated events and coordinating marketing. He is currently the president of the University of Pretoria YouthMappers chapter, and has been instrumental in the arrangements of various mapathons that were held at the University of Pretoria and with school learners in Pretoria.

He was a DST/NRF intern in the Centre for Geoinformation Science under the supervision of Prof Serena Coetzee in 2018. As part of his duties, he was a teaching assistant for GIS310 (Advance GIS), GMT320 (Geoinformatics project) and GIS 311 (Geoinformatics). His main task was to manage and coordinate the practical sessions for the GIS 310 group of 120 students. For GMT 320, he assisted with administration and logistical arrangements with the community of Alaska informal settlement and presents practicals to the students. Through the internship and his honour’s project, he was involved in the Frontiers of Engineering Seed Funding project with King's College London. The aim of the project was to improve the process for collecting volunteered geographic information by interacting with hackathons. For the project, he assisted with the arrangement of mapathons and the development of a wiki for reporting on the process. Additionally, he coordinated with postgraduate students at King's College London to analyse the quality of the data. During this time, he was a facilitator in a UN OpenGIS online course on QGIS and a mentor in the annual Google Code-in.

Currently, he is working as a research assistant in the Department of Geography, Geoinformatics and Meteorology at the University of Pretoria. In the 2019 edition of Google Code-in Cameron was a mentor and administrator for OSGeo during this time where he coordinated directly with the participants, mentors and Google to ensure the smooth running of the competition. During his time at the University, he has assisted with and lead workshops where various open source geospatial topics were covered. He has also participated in a number of community outreach and engagement programs. At his university, Cameron is always assisting students with learning open source software and develops material for open source GIS applications that students use and works not only with Geoinformatics students but also students from other degrees. Later this year (2020), Cameron will again be a facilitator in a UN OpenGIS online course on PostGIS.

His current research is an international collaboration between the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Swedish STINT. The focus of this study was to build a collaborative data library for the sharing of fine-grained spatial and non-spatial data. This was achieved by building and configuring a customized GeoNode instance.

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.

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.
