Dear All,

The SIGTE (University of Girona), the Nottingham Geospatial Institute 
(University of Nottingham) and Prodevelop are pleased to announce the 
Fifth Open Source Opportunities in GIS Summer School, from 7th to 11th 
of July 2014 at Girona, Spain.

*The Open Source Opportunities in GIS Summer School* is an initiative 
aimed to meet the GIS professional demands related to free and open 
solutions, and we are working on this vision from the start. The Summer 
School 2014 will be focused on the development and creation of Open Web 
Services and Web Applications, especially on the publication of data on 
the web. With this goal, the programme will cover topics related to the 
acquisition and importation of OpenStreetMap data into a spatial 
database, creation of geospatial web services and development of 
internet viewers for publishing geospatial data.

We will be strongly supporting this excellent initiative. Jeremy Morley 
will be contributing the Nottingham components for the Summer School. 
The course has been designed and will be conducted on a GNU/Linux 
operating system based on the use of the OSGeo-Live DVD 

The program aims to act as a platform for Free and Open Source 
Geospatial Software teaching, learning and collaboration. All course 
materials produced for the Summer School will be made available at the 
past Summer schools section of the website and also through ELOGeo 
repository for the benefit of the wider community.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Open Source Opportunities in GIS 
Summer School 2014.
