Dear OSGeo, ICA, ISPRS Communities, and the GeoForAll mission,

Some very exciting news will soon be shared with YOU! The good news is that GeoForAll progress is being made on multiple fronts, in ways that serve the core principles of the brilliant world-beacons provided by OSGeo, ICA, ISPRS and OGRS. Here is a brief mention for what you will learn more of soon.

1. The European Space Agency (ESA) has standardized on NASA WebWorldWind. Expect significant advances to this open source geobrowser, along with facilitated access to the Copernicus programme Sentinel data, for research and the needs of a greater European government community. Thank you ESA and Pier Giorgio Marchetti!

2. Extraordinary progress is being made on what was originally called the Global Earthquake Forecast System and is now referred to as Earthquake Signal Precursors (ESP). This will prove invaluable to the world. The monitoring systems (hardware) and entire communication infrastructure (software), are all designed and built as open source. Thank you TrilliumLearning and Ron Fortunato!

3. The city of Trento will be hosting the 'climax' to the 2016 Europa Challenge. This will include an all-expense paid invitation (lodging and meals, excluding travel) to the top three teams for a final three days of intense collaboration and all-out competition for the very best ^OpenCitySmart^ solution! Thank you Trento and Milena Bigatto! 

4. Look for a special Europa Challenge presence at the OGRS symposium in Perugia.

5. And more pleasant surprises!  ;-)
