GeoCat has committed to the highest level of OSGeo sponsorship with their Diamond Sponsorship of the Foundation. GeoCat is a longtime international leader in Free and Open Source Geospatial software and standards implementation.
“With almost 20 years of OSGeo behind us, there is much to build on in the decades ahead. We are proud to contribute at the highest sponsor level to OSGeo’s mission, beyond the projects we are directly involved in.” says GeoCat CEO Jeroen Ticheler. “Running the infrastructure, lowering the cost of conferences, investing in existing and new community projects are all vital to our community and to the world. We have supported this community since our founding in 2007, and intend to do so for many years to come.”
“We welcome GeoCat as a Diamond Sponsor for 2024 and we would like to thank GeoCat for their commitment all those years supporting the OSGeo mission”, said OSGeo President Dr. Angelos Tzotsos. “It is brilliant to see companies like GeoCat who have built successful businesses and services on the open source geospatial tools, while contributing to OSGeo projects, helping to ensure the ongoing sustainability of our community.”
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster global adoption of open geospatial technology by being an inclusive software foundation devoted to an open philosophy and participatory community driven development.
The foundation provides financial, organizational and legal support to the broader open source geospatial community. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit. OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.
