Community Sprint

Also this year, after the conference, there will be the OSGeo community sprint.

Participation is free of charge and anyone involved or interested in getting involved in OSGeo community projects is welcome.

You can choose to contribute to one or more projects. The sky is the limit. There’s always plenty to do – and it’s not all about programming. Translation, documentation, feedback, discussions, and testing are very important for projects! Conference registration is not a prerequisite for participation in the community sprint.


The community sprint will be held on 01-02 of July.

  • 8:00 - 21:00


The community sprint will be hosted at the Innovation and Training Park Prizren.

Registered Attendees

The community sprint is free of charge but we kindly ask you to write down your name for better planning.

OpenGIS Harmonization

The OGC GeoAPI Implementation Specification requires exclusive use of the org.opengis Java package. OSGeo experimented in cross-project collaboration using “geoapi-pending” interfaces defined in the org.opengis Java package. This activity removes use org.opengis from OSGeo projects, and provides scripts to help the wider Java community adapt to the change.

Visit OSGeo opengis-harmonization initiative activity background, including sponsorship opportunities. See GeoTools wiki for technical details on is challenge.

  1. Introduce an org.geotools.api packages as a drop-in replacement for org.opengis packages
  2. Pull methods down into existing GeoTools interface and extends relationship
  3. Produce linux or ant script to migrate client code (to be provided with update instructions)
  4. Stretch goal: Remove interfaces that have no implementations


Working in contribute to the accessibility of different languages to the official documentation and software

Re:Earth" is a WebGIS platform that serves as the foundation for a "digital twin" that reproduces information from physical space in virtual space. This tool is released as open source software, and the source code is freely available. It has the following features

- Provides an environment for easy utilization of geospatial (physical space) data, which is becoming increasingly complex and large-scale

- General-purpose for management, analysis, and visualization of geospatial data

- Realization of WebGIS: Expanding functionality by developing plug-ins for various fields Re:Earth" is developed using the latest Web technology, and a full-fledged GIS environment can be easily used on a Web browser without the need for installation. By making Re:Earth open source, we aim to form a worldwide OSS community with engineers from all over the world, including developers of the main unit and plug-ins.
