118 topics of the FOSS4G 2010

The best that can be of these events are in PDF presentations that are very useful for reference in forming processes or decision making, especially in these times that the open source geospatial world has matured dramatically. It is a good example of human creativity, which recycles and diversifies the same concept with innovations that CAD / GIS software giants would like to have for use. In this collection stand out comparisons between different tools, it is surprising how the MapServer patriarch remained robust in its specialty although now has many who make it complement or shadow; GeoServer also with its multiple applications seems to be taking firm steps.


FOSS4G is the software annual event for the free geospatial software field, (Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial), which on this occasion was held in Barcelona. This event is sponsored by organizations and projects that promote the efforts optimization in this area searching a better quality, more are added every day, and including proprietary software sponsors it to sniff out what happens there.

FOSS4G 2011 will be held in Denver, Colorado. Because of the proximity to this environment and interesting situations by that time I can finally attend it. For reference, I leave the list of at least 118 of the 2010 topics sorted by organization and with the titles approximation that support the letter ñ (Some titles stays in both languages in the table).
