OSGeo is pleased to announce that the GRASS, GDAL and FDO projects have
all graduated from the incubation process and are now a full fledged

Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) is a Geographic
Information System (GIS) used for geospatial data management and
image processing, graphics/maps production, spatial modeling, and


The GDAL/OGR project provides a library and commandline tools for
reading and
writing geospatial raster and vector file formats.  As a library it
a single abstract data model to the calling application for all formats.


The FDO data access technology provides an API for manipulating,
and analyzing geospatial information regardless of where it is stored.
uses a provider-based model for supporting a variety of geospatial data
sources, where each provider typically supports a particular data format
or data store.


Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community
a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license
verification and general good project operation.  Graduating incubation
is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of
the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
