We are happy to announce that Oslandia is a Bronze sponsor at FOSS4G 2016 conference in Bonn (22-26 August). FOSS4G is the annual global event of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). It's the largest technical geospatial Open Source conference.
Oslandia is participating with 2 hands-on workshops and 4 presentations covering 3D, postGIS, point cloud and network management. We invite you to visit our booth for more information, technical questions, and to meet members of our team in person.
- Using PostGIS in a real advanced way !
- QGIS 3: plans, wishes and challenges
- iTowns, a new framework for 3D web visualization
- OpenSource tools for water network management
Hope to see you there!
The key topics in 2016 are :
- Open Data
- Remote Sensing for Earth Observation
- Land information
- Disaster Management
The theme of the conference is "building bridges". This supports the objective of bringing together attendees across domains and communities. The Open Source idea has a lot in common with the emerging trend to publish more digital assets as Open Data. At the same time the geospatial technology, the core of FOSS4G, is perfectly applicable to making all that great Open Data more accessible. The "Bonn Geo Summer" also brings together the geospatial and remote sensing worlds which have historically existed somewhat in parallel. Land Information in its broadest sense, be it cadastre, tenure and city planning, has a growing need for geospatial technology to help alleviate the pressure on urban areas and make the constant migration pressure into cities and large scale refugee events manageable. The fourth thematic focus lies on emergency management which also heavily relies on geospatial technology and increasingly also on geospatial Open Data.
