Dear OSGeo Live community,

this is a follow up on the minting of a persitent Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for the OSGeo Live repository a few months back. DOI are an emerging standard in digital science.
This DOI reference has now been used to reference the OSGeo Live codebase in the Open Source GIS chapter of the new edition of the Springer Handbook if Geographic Information.
DOI can be used to reference code, data, publications and video and allow to give due scientific credit to the authors, in this case the project development team.
The Open Source GIS chapter is available for free download during August 2022: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-030-53125-6_30.
The chapter includes also a large number of references to conference videos about the software tools which are adressed, which can be immediately accessed from the PDF.
The video references are also enabled by DOI.

Kind regards,
