Special callsign YR5GEO

FOSS4G stands for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial.

It is the flagship event of OSGeo We live amazing times! Our world, our day-to-day lives, how we communicate and interact have dramatically changed within the last decades. Access to an almost surreal amount of information is at a swipe of a finger. And all of it is possible because of mind blowing technological and informational progress, at the heart of which stands DATA. And because everything happens somewhere or in a spatial relation with something, the geospatial dimension opens anew analysis and visualization opportunities. Schuyler Erle said years ago “You are awesome, your software is awesome, (but) your software is useless, …without data”. Our great challenge today lies in our capability of extracting meaningful information from all the (geo)data resources flooding our world.

We will be using the special callsign YR5GEO between 15 August and 15 September 2019.
