FOSS4G is heralded as the international "gathering of tribes" of open source geospatial communities, where developers and users show off their latest software and projects. The theme for 2009 "User Driven", reflects the migrating focus on users and integration of geospatial components into systems. The spatial industry is undergoing rapid innovations and the open source spatial community is one of the forces driving the change. It also highlights the power of Open Source to solve business problems.
