OSGeo Experience and Roles:

OSGeo User.png  OSGeo Coder.png   I am a strong proponent of open source software and open data as essential components of a more transparent, rapid and inclusive science, especially in ecology, biogeography and conservation sciences. For my spatial analysis I typically use GRASS GIS, R, OGR/GDAL, and QGIS, amongst others. I furthermore use QGIS, Tilemill and Leaflet when I have to create maps (print and online, see e.g., the maps on [[1]]).

I am not really a software developer, but like many GRASS GIS and R users, I know enough of scripting (R, Python, command line) to make my own life easier, and even to write a few simple GRASS GIS addons ;-). I furthermore try to find the time to write down my notes on the use of Open Source software on my blog Ecostudies.
