Yesterday, I gave an introduction to open source GIS at MAC URISA. As the meeting was about Internet-enabled GIS, I focused on server-side software. I’ve made the presentation available on SlideShare and available as a download from my website.
Here’s a listing of the programs and standards I reference in the presentation:
- Open Source Initiative
- Open Source Geospatial Foundation
- The Cathedral and the Bazaar
- Web Map Service
- Web Feature Service
Here’s the sites I referenced as examples using open source GIS:
- The White House’s Delivering on Change
- New Jersey State Atlas
- NJGIN’s Information Warehouse
- NuMaps’ DemographicDrapes
- GeoCommons’ Finder! and Maker!
Good for you for posting the presentation yourself and not waiting for MAC URISA to post it on their website. At the Fall 2008 meeting, MAC URISA promised to post Jason Stoker’s LiDAR presentation, and I announced its imminent availability on my blog. It has yet to appear, 6+ months later.
