- browser with osgeo.org, live.osgeo.org, project websites
- demo: anything you can run locally, or install live.osgeo.org in a VM

*Geospatial and location software is a great addition to the open source
community: unlocking government and industry opportunities, at the
forefront of mobile and internet of things innovation.*

*The foundation's projects are all freely available under open source
