It has come to my attention that some proprietary GIS vendors are doing big marketing of thier proprietary products as the Science! Science is not any specific GIS proprietary tools!

For anyone opposing Open Principles in Education , i humbly request them to please consider supporting Open Principles in Education as education and empowerment are key for getting rid of extreme poverty and help create digital economy opportunities also for billions of our economically poor brothers and sisters across our planet . Access to quality education opportunities is everyone's birthright. So do join us and let us all work together to enable open principles in education to help create a world that is more accessible, equitable and full of innovation and opportunities for everyone.
