On behalf of GeoForAll and the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, it is my great pleasure to introduce our colleagues at Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand  as our “GeoForAll” lab of the month. The Asian Institute of Technology promotes technological change and sustainable development in the Asian-Pacific region through higher education, research and outreach. Established in Bangkok in 1959, AIT has become a leading regional postgraduate institution and is actively working with public and private sector partners throughout the region and with some of the top universities in the world.
