Memorandum of Understanding between
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation
and
Spatial Information Office of Korea Land & Housing Corporation (LH Corp)

September 2015

The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is to establish a collaborative relationship between the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and the Spatial Information Office of Korea Land and Housing Corporation (LH Corp). Both parties to this MOU share the goal of developing collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and government organizations in Open Source GIS software and data in Korea.

LH Corp has been supporting and advancing Korean national spatial data infrastructure and developing and operating related geospatial systems since the early years, through various technical projects and academic activities at a range of scales: local, regional, national and international.

The MOU will cover the following proposals and topics:

  • Positive effort to activate utilization of Open Source GIS in public domain organizations of ROK (Republic of Korea), including LH Corp.
  • Establish a close cooperation with OSGeo and specifically with the OSGeo Korean chapter.
  • Work and research together to introduce Open Source software and communities to LH Corp team members, for possible use in the development of geospatial applications.
  • Continue to help LH Corp establish open geospatial datasets, through the help of the OSGeo local chapter, to allow the Korean public access.

Each Party will appoint and maintain a representative to act as liaison with the other Party, and each Party may deal exclusively with the liaison appointed by the other Party if it so chooses, except as otherwise provided in Exhibit A. The initial liaisons are listed on Exhibit A.

This MOU will be reviewed annually by both parties at which time revisions may be made and the agreement renewed.
