Time to end the mystery and reveal what really is project FOSSGIS Brazil.

Many bet that was an event, or a

organization, but nobody has come to settle what really is this project.

In recent years the Free Geo has grown and seconded as a real option in the

corporate market, and with it an increase in

demand for these technologies. Today there are several blogs, lists and

discussion forums in Portuguese dealing with various matters

related and provide free support to those technologies. But until today

there was a magazine specializing in Free Geotechnologies.

With this intention comes Magazine FOSSGIS Brazil, seeking to fill that gap.

To make this project the major names in the Free Will of Geo teamed up to

create a high quality material based on the principles of free software.

In this first edition we will talk about initiatives like OL4JSF, a 100%

Brazilian project, which is already making a success out there. Besides the

OGC, the history of Geo Free, gvSIG, GIS applications for mobile devices,

among others. There is also an issue in this

exclusive interview with Gilbert Câmara, general director of INPE (National

Institute for Space Research).

The journal is entirely free, without needing to make records, pay taxes or

something like that. To get your copy of the magazine is only necessary to


We hope you enjoy this new initiative.

Best regards,

FOSSGIS Brazil team

Vinde, exultemos de alegria no Senhor aclamemos o rochedo que nos salva!
Ao seu encontro caminharemos com louvores, e com cantos de alegria o celebremos!
