Location: Girona, Catalonia, Spain
I'm a GIS Analyst at SIGTE, the GIS and Remote Sensing Center of the University of Girona. I'm tutor of several modules at UNIGIS Msc. since 2003 and I've been involved in the creation and preparation of teaching materials for UNIGIS, courses and summer schools, centered on the use of open source technologies. I'm the scientific coordinator of the International Summer School aimed to build Open Source Opportunities in Geographic Information Systems, held every year in Girona since 2010. I've done several talks about the benefits of the free and open source software.
I'm the responsible of the organization of the "Jornadas de SIG Libre", the Spanish FOSS4G, since the beggining, and I'm really proud of it!
I'm interested in spreading the word about free and open source software and GIS among students and researchers, as well as generate synergies between individuals, companies, ... I'm enthusiast of GRASS, Sextante, QGIS...
