Hi Jachym,

Apologies if i do not correctly understand the context/background of the discussion. In my humble opinion, OSGeo is software foundation but very much involved in open standards, open data  etc   hence we have MoU with OGC etc . We should not have silo approach.  Openness is key. Thanks.

Best wishes,

Hi Sanghee,
I was told some months ago (and I believe, it was Jeff), that we (OSGeo.org) are solely software foundation - therefore we do not care about open data

maybe things have changed?

Dear all,

Can anybody share presentation file about the OSGeo and open data, if any? I’m invited to give a keynote talk at ‘Open Data in Action Conference’[1] in Korea and I don’t want to make the file from the scratch.

FYI, OSGeo Korea[2], R Korea[3], Open Data Institute(ODI) Seoul[4], Open Knowledge(OK) Korea[5] will co-host the event on 15th Nov near Seoul. The main theme of the conference is ‘Experiment on Open Data based Society.’ Anybody who has similar interest can join this conference.

Kind regards,

Shin, Sanghee
