About the Italian OSGeo Chapter and GFOSS.it
The Italian OSGeo Local Chapter was formally accepted by the OSGeo Board of Directors at the September 7, 2007 meeting.
The Italian OSGeo Local Chapter is based on the existing association "Associazione Italiana per l'Informazione Geografica Libera (GFOSS.it)".
GFOSS.it was founded by the Italian GFOSS community during the 8th GRASS e GFOSS (Palermo, February 14-16, 2007) annual meeting. The Italian community includes many professional, university and government members with long national and international experience in the field of the Geomatics and Free and Open Source Software.
The objectives of the GFOSS.it are:
- Promote the development, the diffusion and the protection of Free and Open Source Software for geo-informatics.
- Promote Open Standards for geo-informatics and the free access to geographic data.
- Promote contact among developers and users within the community and between the community and external bodies.
- Foster and coordinate the translation, localization and internationalization of software and documentation for geo-informatics.
- Promote relationships with other national and international associations, and with government agencies and private companies.
