118 themes from FOSS4G 2010

One of the best that can be left from these events are the PDF presentations that are very practical for reference in training or decision-making processes; more in these times that the open source geospatial world has matured surprisingly. It is a good example of human creativity, which recycles and diversifies the same concept with innovations that the greats of CAD / GIS software would already like to have for their use. In this collection the comparisons between different tools stand out, it is surprising how the Patriarch MapServer remains robust in his specialty although now he has many that complement or overshadow him; also GeoServer with its multiple applications seems to be taking firm steps.

Head 1

The FOSS4G is the annual event of the software for the free and free geospatial field (Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial), which this time was held in Barcelona. This event is promoted by organizations and projects that promote the optimization of efforts in this field in search of improving its quality; Every day more are added, even the proprietary software sponsors it to snoop what happens there.

The 4 FOSS2011G will be held in Denver, Colorado. Due to the proximity to this environment and interesting junctures for that date, I will finally be able to attend. For reference, I leave the list of at least 118 issues of the 2010 edition, ordered by organization and with the approximation of the titles that support the letter ñ.
