May I also request the Regional chairs to please ask the main leads of existing GeoForAll labs to please create their OSGeoid and update their lab info . For example many of the IberoAmerica labs are not listed in our new website.


Thank you for your help with this.

Best wishes,

Dear colleagues,

As we now moved to new website, but the migration of our lab info to new website is still not complete.

We have 125 labs listed in the table at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Edu_current_initiatives#sortable_table_id_0

We are now moved to new website and many of these labs are not listed in the new website. You need to create  your own OSGeo id for this.  Please goto https://id.osgeo.org/ldap/create

Once you created your OSGeoid , you can login to the OSGeo website and update/edit your GeoForAll lab/node info.

For all new GeoForAll labs/nodes, from now they will need to submit  their details  at https://www.osgeo.org/initiatives/geo-for-all/lab-submission/
