Oslandia is convinced by Open Source solutions in the geospatial field, and makes active promotion for it. We are therefore part of OSGeo, The Open Source Geospatial foundation.
The OpenSource Geospatial foundation (OSGeo) is a non-profit organization (US 501 type). Its mission is to help and promote the collaborative develompent of opensource geospatial data and technologies. The foundation provides financial help, as well as legal and organizational support to the Open Source geospatial community.
OSGeo is nowadays a dynamic and expanding organization, particularly by the means of local chapters by language or geographical zones.
