As 2016 is nearly over, i wish to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support and contributions which helped to build up the "GeoFor All" initiative. Our thanks to an incredible 2016. 2016 has been an important year for us as it exactly 10 years ago we started putting initial ideas for Open Geospatial Science. We went through lot of hardships and struggles (some laughed at us initially!) but it has been an incredibly amazing journey over the last decade.
We had to take this one step at a time to make this possible . We started by building the community (started workshops, conferences), then we started establishing dedicated open source research labs in universities so we have universities globally invested in the idea, then we started dedicated journals etc for expanding the discipline and now we are working on implementing our vision 2030.
Geospatial Science = Open Geospatial Science

On behalf of everyone at "GeoForAll" initiative, we wish you and your families very happy holidays and Happy New Year 2017.
May the FOSS be with everyone...
