Dear All

I want to update you about the UN OpenGIS Initiative.

OSGeo (Maxi Cannata) launched a contest for UN OpenGIS Initiative. You
can see the contest and the first logos here:

Meanwhile we are proceeding with the Capacity Building.

19th September 2016 the first virtual class  starts. The first course is
"QGIS GeoAcademy" and the tutors are Rick Smith, Tom Mueller and
Youngok  Kang (I thank you in advance!). After this experiment we will
go ahead with other tutors with PostGIS, geoserver, OpenLayers and
Geonode. UN staff and tutors will use the Beep Platform provided by
Politecnico di Milano for sharing material and information. The course
is self-made but the tutors are available for answering questions and
solving doubts.

In Autumn, thanks to Rafael Moreno, Ki-Joune Li (head of the project
together with Kyoung-Soo Eom) and I will organize a webinar for
presenting the state of the initiative.

The activity is intense. In November we will have the Second UN OpenGIS
Workshop where I will show how much GeoForAll has been contributing (in
Capacity Building) to this initiative.

Best regards to everybody!


P.S. Please spread the news about the logo contest!!
