Few words about me.

At present I am working at The IUNG-PIB in Poland and the K.U. Leuven in Belgium. In IUNG-PIB I am running several projects, remaining officially on an unpayed leave. Most of the time I stay in Belgium, working within CASCADOSS project and some other FOSS4G training initiatives performed at SADL (Spatial Applications Division Leuven, K.U. Leuven R&D) User:SADL:

  • training on application of FOSS4G in land evaluation addressed to the participants from developing countries; link
  • training on OGC WMS/WFS protocols. link

Recently I got involved with SDI domain, within projects targeting INSPIRE, SEIS and GMES.


My professional experience includes: GIS/RS in environmental/agricultural/spatial management domains, spatial modelling (erosion, landsliding, watershed processes), fundamental research on soil science and soil erosion. Recent experiences are: software evaluation, FOSS4G, WebGIS and various aspect of SDI. More details to be found at my professional webpage


I am interested in FOSS4G since 2000 as I was looking for free GIS solutions for my PhD research. Later on I have been using FOSS4G in my enterprise. Now, within CASCADOSS I am involved in software evaluation process and general project management. I am strongly dedicated to the idea of FOSS4G as, knowing from my own experience in Poland, the lack of free software for GI and also unavailability of free spatial data, hold the development of GI market as well as diminish the range of environmental assessments and potential scientific progress.
