Dear all,

I'd like to nominate Peter Löwe [0] for OSGeo Charter Membership. 
He is active in Free and Open Source GIS development for more than a
decade, specifically in the field of remote sensing, but also on rule
based systems, crisis management, high performance computation...

He collaborated with FOSSGIS.de (he has been its very first
non-founding member), Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam GFZ, the
South African Metereological Service (where he successfully introduced
his team to GRASS GIS), Geomancers.net and RapidEye AG among others
He wrote several GRASS modules, available in Addons [2], and obtained
RapidEye data for i.atcorr module [3], been a developer of the GISIX
live-linux DVD [4]. Moreover, he won several research prizes with FOSS
GIS work [see details at 0,1]

I met Peter at FOSS4G 2010 in Barcelona, and worked with him during
GRASS Community Sprint 2011 in Prague. He has been so far an effective
ambassador of OSGeo in corporate/academic environment, and he would
benefit from the official recognition of OSGeo community to achieve
further objectives.
