Open Data Track welcomes projects and case studies about geospatial open data and FOSS4G tools.
The scope of the Open Data Track is to provide insights on success stories, best practices and guidelines in releasing public geodata, fostering community driven geodata and developing and maintaining products, services and apps based on open geodata. Through the Open Data Track, it is aimed to bring forward and highlight for everyone how the Open Data initiative in geospatial is growing, what advantages, what controversies, what questions it brings forward to the community as well as the public and private sectors.
Many initiatives worldwide are proving that Open Geospatial Data will be a big part of the future. Within this track, it is intented to reveal state-of-the-art practices and case studies intertwining Open Data and Open Source in geospatial. Throught the selected presentations it is aimed to spread knowledge and deeper understanding on the various and significant implications of open geodata and to sketch best practices and guidelines for releasing and using these data within the FOSS4G community and beyond.
The Open Data track will focus on the functionality of FOSS4G tools as well as their future developments and improvements, specifically in the following areas of interest:
Authors can submit contributions by choosing one of the following options:
