I would like to nominate Alvin Natividad for OSGeo charter membership.
Alvin is a civil engineer and an educator in Palawan, Philippines who
actively uses and promotes the use of OSGeo software and other open source
tools. One of the projects he's currently involved in with the provincial
government of the Palawan is Tax mapping. He's using QGIS (and LibreCAD),
having successfully dissuade the government from using the more expensive
commercial alternatives. He is also currently working on profile surveys
for Puerto Princesa City water district (Puerto Princesa is the capital of
Palawan), and having his team work on similar surveys in other cities. In
addition, he teaches GIS for Civil and Geodetic engineering students in two
of the biggest universities in Palawan. He does all these using QGIS/Grass.
Avin plans to conduct more training using QGIS/Grass and LibreCAD, and to
create QGIS extensions using C++ and python.
I believe Alvin would be a great addition to the OSGeo charter membership
as he would work tirelessly to get open source GIS and software set root
and grow in an otherwise remote part of this world.
