Welcoming the Community

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation promotes interaction between users, developers, and community participants. It provides links to events, documentation, websites, and other information of interest to the open source web mapping community.

In the past many of these community-related functions have been overseen in an ad-hoc manner or deferred to the University of Minnesota or other organizations. The Open Source Geospatial Foundation streamlines the coordination of community development efforts, which are crucial to the success of open source web mapping.
