Summary Report and notes on OSGeo Certification Process The issue of Open Source certification has been discussed vigorously by various parties over the years. Most recently, at the 2014 FOSS4G in Portland Oregon where Arnulf Christl led a presentation on his Metaspaital Institute. A group of US and EU academics has also discussed the need for OSGeo or GISCI or the QGIS Project to lead the effort. Many in the US feel the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) is the most likely organization to design and administer the examination. Bill Hodge, executive director of GISCI is aware of the need and is willing to work with his Board of Directors and OSGeo and QGIS Project to assist them should they desire.
