About the OSGeo-Live Presentation

We have created a half hour presentation, which provides a brief introduction the OSGeo Foundation, OGC standards, and starting the DVD. It then provides a lightning (20 second) overview of all applications installed on this DVD, which effectively provides a birds eye view of the breadth of robust GeoSpatial Open Source Software available.

We hope this presentation will be useful for people preparing presentations about geospatial open source.

Building the Powerpoint slides

The slides simply contain a title, and a screen shot which is copied from the Project Overviews.

Building the script

The script is derived primarily from the first paragraph or two of the Project Overviews, adjusted slightly to ensure that the script flows well between slides.

Building the video on ubuntu

I'm sure there is an easier way to create a video, but here are steps which have worked so far.

Create Images of Slides
  • Install "shutter", an application for taking screen shots
 sudo apt-get install shutter
  • Change Screen Resolution to 1024x768
  • Use shutter to take screen shot of each Open Office slide.
Audio recording
Use XXX to record the script for each slide
Use Kdenlive to cut and paste the audio and video together
