The incubation committee is pleased to report that two projects have entered incubation (and are already underway):

  • ZOO-Project: A WPS (Web Processing Service) open source project released under a MIT/X-11 style license . It provides an OGC WPS compliant developer-friendly framework to create and chain WPS Web services. Frank Warmerdam will be acting as mentor for the project.
  • Opticks: Expandable remote sensing and imagery analysis software platform. Mark Lucas has volunteered as mentor for the project.

The board also confirmed that PostGIS has completed the Foundation's incubation requirements and has accepted Paul Ramsey as "PostGIS Project Officer". Congratulations to the PostGIS project!

We have another two projects just entering incubation:

  • OGC Team Engine: The Test, Evaluation, And Measurement (TEAM) Engine is a test script interpreter. It executes test scripts written in Compliance Test Language (CTL) to verify that an implementation of a specification. Thanks to Justin DeOlivera for volunteering as mentor.
  • Marble Virtual Globe: Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more about Earth. Marble is also a light weight generic geographical map component for use in your own Qt 4.x / C++ application. Arnulf Christl will be mentoring the project.

There are additional projects ready to take part in the Foundation - but they are missing a critical thing: You!

If you are in position to help out in the role of "mentor" and introduce new projects to the OSGeo Foundation we would love to hear from you.
