This week we are highlighting a number of upcoming geospatial conferences and the organizations that they representing. Conferences are a moment to learn something new, hear about great work that our colleagues are doing, find opportunities for collaboration, share knowledge, and have fun.
FOSS4G NA stands for Free and Open Source Software for(4) Geospatial North America
FOSS4G is hosted by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) which is a non-profit non-governmental organization whose mission is to support and promote the collaborative development of open geospatial technologies and data. It brings together all the members of the open source community – developers, contributors, extenders, users, teachers, service providers, consumers, and business and research organizations to learn from, collaborate, and communicate with each other. This is a great opportunity to learn something new, ask questions, and make new connections.
