Hi all,

It is good to see many projects in various UN agencies moving to open source and OSGeo . For example, FAO http://www.fao.org/geonetwork/srv/en/main.home

It will be very helpful if those working in any UN projects using open source. OSGeo tools , please send details to the OSGeo UN committee mailling list at  https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/un   

I have interest in global forest protection and biodiversity work . Last week, I came across  UNBiodiversity lab https://www.unbiodiversitylab.org   which is interesting work . Looking through it, I came across MapX  and wanted to learn more. Thanks to Barend Köbben , I got some  basic info that it is OS using many OSGeo tools [2].

With lot of activities happening, it is very difficult to keep track of all developments. I would like to request all project teams working in OSGeo tools in UN projects to please share with  OSGeo UN committee mailling list. Please share overview of the project with website links, overview of the tools, links to public repository of the project etc as it will be very helpful for the wider community to learn more ideas for the future. Many thanks..

Best wishes,
