We are pleased to announce details of Erasmus IP funded GIS OPENSOURCE
Summer School 2010 from 28th June to 9th July 2010 at Girona, Spain.


The Summer School in Open Source GIS is organized jointly by the
Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing Centre (SIGTE) of
the University of Girona (Spain), the Lahti Centre of Aalto University
School of Science and Technology of the Aalto University (Finland), the
Centre for Geospatial Science (CGS) of the University of Nottingham (UK)
and the Institute for Research on Urban Sciences and Techniques (IRSTV)
from the Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France).


The key aims of the Open Source GIS Summer School are:


# To act as a platform for free and open source geospatial teaching,
learning and collaboration.


# To provide practical and hands on experience to the participants in
the use of free and open source geospatial software. 


# To enable participants to understand concepts of cartographic
representation, spatial data integration, spatial analysis, designing
spatial databases, web mapping, etc. 


# To demonstrate the development of the key stages of a GIS project
using free and open source software. 


# To enable the participants to implement a full GIS stack with free and
open source geospatial technologies. 


# To develop expertise in  multi-disciplinary theoretical and applied
research using Open Source Geospatial technologies.


The program also aims to have an impact beyond from the following:


- Transferable skills development in  project management, team working,
presentation skills  etc which will help the students  in the
development of their research and future career.


- To enable participants to gain relevant skills to undertake open
source geospatial research and development in collaboration with
international partners to ensure world-class and globally relevant


- Engage in outreach activities to ensure early and broad dissemination
of results and encourage wide engagement between Summer School outcomes
and community up-take.


The course is particularly aimed at postgraduate and doctoral students
from a wide range of disciplines such as civil engineering, regional
planning, geography, transportation studies, computer science,
management etc. We welcome applications from all interested students but
funding is only available for selected participants coming from the
organizing institutions.
