FirstBaseSolutions Report 2007
First Base Solutions (FBS) joined the OSGeo community as a supporter and sponsor in 2007. The company sent a number of staff to the 2007 FOSS4G conference in Victoria and was impressed with the exponential growth in attendees.
At FBS we use the OSGeo libraries and applications to power our various web map on-line repositories and stores, including VuMAP and MapWarehouse.
We are currently incorporating OSGeo applications into GeoARK, our new map appliance that works with Google Earth Enterprise.
OSGeo has given us the means to take development in-house rather than rely on outsourcing resulting in reduced costs.
It is gratifying to see the geospatial industry embracing OSGeo as more companies discover the value of the technology that has been created through open source initiatives.
