Open Source Geospatial Foundation Formed
OSGeo Projects Include GeoTools, Mapbender, MapBuilder, MapServer, OGR, Grass and Ossim

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo), a not-for-profit initiative to support and promote the development of open geospatial, or location-aware, technologies, launched this week. The organization will serve as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources.

OSGeo held its first meeting in Chicago last month with 25 participants representing 18 groups and over 20 different open source geospatial projects, and 39 other parties participating via Internet Relay Chat.

The initiative draws governance inspiration from several aspects of the Apache Software Foundation, including a membership composed of individuals drawn from foundation projects, whose selections are based on their active contribution to foundation projects and governance.

Initial OSGeo projects have been identified as GeoTools, Mapbender, MapBuilder, MapGuide, MapServer, Geospatial Data Abstraction Library/OGR, Grass and Ossim.

The foundation will not require OSGeo software projects to be licensed under any one particular open source licence, but will require that all OSGeo software is released under an open source licence approved by the Open Source Initiative.
