Welcome to the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial community. Freedom is one of the tools we use to take on the world. This presentation breaks down the principles on which our community built.


This welcome presentation is a quick orientation on open source, open data, open standards and open development.


Please attend this talk if you are new to the FOSS4G community, or would like some background on how all the fun toys you see on display fit together to form a larger picture. A larger picture we like to call the future.
