Hi, welcome to my users page. I was OSGeo's Executive Director (2006-2011) and continue to be interested in partnering with others to keep moving open source geospatial technology to the forefront. One way I'm doing this is to get quality book/training material into the marketplace. After my book (Web Mapping Illustrated) was published in 2005, the need for such support material has become even clearer - business, government and academia (as well as professionals in general) all need high quality material that is reliable in the long term. Learn more about the company I'm building through Locate Press.

I'm always interested in learning about how you are using open source geospatial software and what kinds of additional support you may need. While I am available for consulting work, my primary focus has been on connecting the right individuals and companies together as a support service. I am also available for speaking and custom training opportunities.

If you would like to meet sometime, drop me an email (info@locatepress.com) or check out my upcoming events list to see if I'll be near by. I'm normally operating out of my office in Williams Lake, BC, Canada


I'm planning to be at the following events. If you are there too, please look me up:

  • GISRUK - Lancaster University, April 2012 - Invited keynote. Helping with workshops and delivering talk.
