News Date

19 Apr 2013


OSGeo is pleased to announce that the GeoMoose project has graduated from incubation and is now a full fledged OSGeo project. Bob Basques, a long time member of the GeoMoose Project Steering Committee (PSC), has been appointed as project officer.

GeoMoose is GeoMoose is an Open Source Web Client JavaScript Framework for displaying distributed GIS data. GeoMoose excels at creating a useful web-based GIS application for those who need something that works without any programming experience. The GeoMoose demo (available on the GeoMoose website) contains a fully operating web-based property viewer. It can render, investigate, and even edit layers without the need to write a single line of code.

Graduating incubation includes fulfilling requirements for open community operation, a responsible project governance model, code provenance, and general good project operation. Graduation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users and the community at large an added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
