GIS Open source projects

Founder and spiritual father of geomajas (2008 - today)

Geomajas is an enterprise-ready open source GIS framework for the web. It has client-server integration for displaying and editing of geographic data.

Geomajas has integrated security and is endlessly scalable. It is compliant with OGC standards such as WMS, WFS, etc and also supports spatial databases.

It integrates with your system and provides out-of-the-box functionality through plug-ins. By leveraging GWT on the client, development is all-Java making it easier and more efficient for your team.

The project became an OSGEO project in december 2010. Reference applications and developer documentation on the geomajas website.

founder and spiritual father of GeGIS (2006 - 2008)

This project originated in 2006 and is for the moment only interesting from a historical perspective. geGIS stands for generic GIS ans is a thin client RIA environment for generating and exploiting GIS electronic services. Started as an governmental Dutch project (Flanders - Belgium). The project was the prototype project to start the Geomajas project.

Today (November 2011) we are working very hard on a new version, based on the latest version of the Geomaajs platform. The workname is the GeoGui platform and it is an example of a server application, integrating different SDI services from different data sources into an application that gives an analitical tool to the user, providing him with a very open environment to combine and search available reusable governmental and open data.

Founder of DFC Software Engineering (1994) DFC software engineering is a project oriented company, working on eGov an GIS project for governmental agencies, communities, regions. The combination of ICT experts and a good understanding of the GIS needs results in a curriculum of interesting project references. The OSGeo project geomajas originated from DFC Software Engineering who took the lead in establishing and shaping the project. In 2008 a new spinnout Geosparc was created to focus on a product development strategy, using the open source community geomajas as one of the basic assets.

Founder of Geosparc The aim of Geosparc is to professionally support Geomajas, the open source GIS application development software, coupling the innovation of open source with the reliability of a true enterprise-class platform. Geomajas was built with today's Internet and cloud architectures in mind. This truly differentiates Geomajas from other GIS software.

When integration, security and scalability are important keywords as part of your environment, you should certainly consider geomajas as the base of your application or solution.

Geosparc guarantees different product offerings based on the Geomajas platform. Geosparc delivers service level agreements and eventually can provide our clients with an alternative licensing model than the open source AGPL licence, which gives our clients huge opportunities to use the positive and strong points of an open source platform, together with the interesting points of commercial licensing offerings.
