I don’t want to flood the list once again. However I’m here to second the nomination of Stephen Mather. He has contributed much to PostGIS and OpenDroneMap projects. Also he has carried out many outreach activities including workshops, seminars and talks. He will be a great asset to our community.

Nominee: Stephen Mather - USA
Stephen has likely been most recently visible within the OSGeo community
as the founder and an ongoing contributor to OpenDroneMap -- for which
he received supportive grant funding in 2016; on which he has given
numerous workshops, presentations, and trainings since its development;
and through which he has partnered with a number of people and agencies
to use geospatial technologies for humanitarian efforts and other
applications in education, governmental work, and more.
Through mentoring within and beyond his professional role, Stephen
encourages the development of geospatial skills in a variety of folk,
and has recently served as a both mentor and a teacher in cooperative
programs in Musanze, Rwanda in addition to partnering with students at
the State University Zanzibar and the University of Rwanda on geospatial
Stephen is very active in outreach efforts; the last three years have
included workshops and presentations all over the globe on open source
geospatial software and systems (with a notable concentration on drone
systems/remote sensing applications) -- events include FOSS4G
(2017,2015,2014), State of the Map Africa (2017), FOSS4G Africa (2017),
State of the Map US (2016).
Technically, Stephen brings a wide range of expertise in across GIS
packages/protocols/libraries, remote sensing, and variety of programming
languages/libraries and is one of the co-authors of the PostGIS Cookbook.
I believe that with a combination of strong technical skills and a
dedication to outreach/education in diverse communities, Stephen has
brought a great deal to the OSGeo community for years, and will continue
to do so.
