Suchith, and the GeoForAll community,
I am greatly honored by this GeoForAll recognition! Being part of GeoForAll rhymes well with the NASA motto ‘for the benefit of all.’
Question. . .as GeoAmbassador, will there be any formal State dinners that require me to wear a tux? ;-)
I am very glad to be part of a community that doesn’t just talk about what the world needs, we build it! And then we help each other achieve our very best with it.
The NASA Europa Challenge was originated in concert Prof Maria Brovelli of Politecnico di Milano. Any success we have had is greatly a result of our ongoing collaboration with Politecnico di Milano at Como, especially the support of Maria’s world-class GIS students who have been integral to our success. Gabriele Prestifilippo, a graduate student of Maria’s, is responsible for making the recent connection with Helsinki for this year’s Europa Challenge, and Gabriele has done so much else in support of NASA WebWorldWind, the oldest and the truest open source virtual globe platform, with no ‘pro’ version ahead.
We have also depended on SMEs such as Trilogis and their CTO, Dr. Giuseppe Conti, who has been Herculean in delivering GeoForAll results. The eLocust3D program for the UN/FAO being just one example. We look forward to more SMEs engaging with the Europa Challenge and delivering GeoForAll results.
The Europa Challenge is there to deliver geospatial solutions that all of humanity can share. What better way for OSGeo and GeoForAll to inspire the world, while simultaneously making it more resource effective and efficient. This year the top six (6) teams will get an all-expense paid week in Helsinki, travel included, for the last week of August. This will allow these student and SMEs to share their work, helping each other advance their project. We treasure this! It is their gift to the world, given in the spirit of GeoForAll.
Please join us! Students and SMEs alike, share with us your GeoForAll ‘right stuff!’
