Happy 10th Birthday OSGeo Foundation


Recommended Posts





4th of February is a great day for all of us as it was the day when our Foundation was founded. 2016 is more special as we have completed 10 Years. No matter what yardstick one uses, it would be hard to deny that we have made great progress and our achievements have been even exceeded our own expectations. Our projects have grown more stable and robust, our events have spread worldwide, our vibrant community continues to grow, our education outreach is blooming through the collective effervescence of the 'GeoForAll' initiative and we are in possession of many more pieces of the jigsaw to help accomplish our vision to "empower everyone with open source geospatial".

We would not been able to get here without the tremendous support from our community and goodwill of our sponsors. Officers of our Foundation have also toiled hard to get us to this stage. By the time we are into FOSS4G-2018, we will be in our teens. So let is now enjoy our childhood and celebrate the wonders that we have achieved in being born, being able to walk on our own feet, and ready to take long strides into the future with a sure feeling that we can do even better in the years to come.
