The Open Source Geospatial Foundation would like to extend a welcome to all SoC students. On this page you will find links to a host of ideas organized by project. You will find ideas ranging from the depths of computer science graph theory to the heights of visualization. One thing all these ideas have in common is lots and lots of spatial data.

These ideas are *only* to motivate you, and serve as example of the kind of hills we want to charge up. Your own ideas are more than welcomed - they are encouraged. We view you as the next wave of open source leaders; show us what you've got.

If you need more information on how to apply try this guide for applicants

What is the URL for your ideas page?

  • OpenLayers: OpenLayers is a Javascript based mapping client, similar to the Javascript used to power Google Maps and other similar mapping websites. Ideas run the full range of math-oriented vector operations to full scale browser-based GIS application development. Good place to look if you're interested in Javascript; you might also be interested in MapBuilder projects if nothing in the OpenLayers space interests you.
