As of June 2010, a new regional chapter of the Open Source Geospatial (OSGeo) Foundation has been formed for the Atlantic provinces. The OSGeo Foundation is a non-profit organization formed to promote and support open source geospatial project development. Geospatial is the term used to describe tools, software and other methods to collect geographic data for map making, topography measurements and other geographic data applications.
The new Atlantic Canada OSGeo chapter has been formed to promote the use of open source geospatial tools in the Atlantic provinces. The group currently has a mailing list and is preparing to have bi-annual meetings with its members. Events such as workshops, lectures and demonstrations are also being planned. People interested in joining the group can visit the page below and join the mailing list.
