Ladies and Gentlemen of the Geospatial Community,
OSGeo is glad to welcome the 13 accepted students and their mentors for OSGeo GSoC 2015!
We received 37 proposals from a variety of geospatial projects. Despite the lower total number of proposals received compared to former years, the overall quality was high, so our choice has been a difficult task.

Congratulations to all accepted students!
We are proud of the geographical variety of countries from which our students come from and live, including: Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, India, Italy, Luxemburg, Portugal, Spain and Sri Lanka.
The list of software projects includes OSGeo (official and incubating) and like-minded projects – let GSoC be a “gathering of tribes”, an occasion to improve communication among all geospatial open source initiatives.
