I nominate Ari Jolma for the OSGeo board elections.  Ari is a professor of
geoinformatics in Helsinki University of Technology (TKK). He teaches both
in the Department of Surveying and in Civil and Environmental Engineering.
 His teaching includes a range of geoinformatic topics including software
architecture for GIS, simulation, hydrology, application development and
more.  He is also a programmer (released a number of Perl modules) and is
focused on spatial modelling, decision support and simulation.

Ari has been actively involved in other organisations as well, including the
International Environmental Modelling and Software Society, where he has
contributed on the board of directors.

He has been involved with OSGeo from its beginning, particularly
contributing to the Education Committee and also representing OSGeo/FOSS at
events through presentations and in academic papers.

Based on his knowledge of FOSS & OSGeo software as well as GIS generally,
his experience in education and other societies, and his interest in
strengthening OSGeo's FOSS message -- it is my pleasure to nominate him for
a board position.
