    Open Source Software and 

    Data for Geospatial Professionals

    The amount of geospatial data produced by the geospatial community grows exponentially everyday ...
     
    Open Data is defined as structured data that is machine-readable, freely shared, used and built on without restrictions.

    Open and unrestricted access to data for public interest purposes, particularly statistical, scientific, geographical, and environmental information, maximizes its use and value, and the reuse of existing data in commercial applications improves time-to-market for businesses.

    In 2009, Open Data started to appear all over the web, with various governments, announcing new initiatives towards opening up public information. In 2011, the Government of Canada launched the Open Data Portal, to support the delivery of Federal Government data in machine-readable formats.

    Open source software provides scalable solutions that can help avoid licensing costs, can be customized for particular requirements, and comes with support from a large geospatial developer community.


    Most people in the geomatics sector are aware of it or have heard about it, yet many people still do not take advantage of it. 

    Come for an introduction to freely available geospatial software and data, and how people are using them in their geospatial professions!

    • Sources of free geospatial data 
    • Free software for geographic data manipulation and analytics 
    • Data collection and compilation 
    • Free software to aid web publishing
