I would like to nominee to Victor Olaya, an GIS enthusiast and a 
multifaceted character. He's the creator and the main developer of the 
SEXTANTE library[1], an open-source library for spatial data analysis 
currently used by several applications such as gvSIG, QGIs, uDIG, ... He 
has been involved in open-source software development and GIS since the 
beginning of his career, focusing on spatial data analysis and 
geomorphometry. His contribution to the open source for geospatial is 
very remarkable and he is also the author of the first free book based 
on Geographic Information Systems[2].
