I am contributing author for the upcoming Springer Encyclopedia of GIS 
(Entries for SVG and Webmapping) and noticed that they have entries for 
some commercial GIS and spatial DB products (e.g. Oracle, Smallworld) 
but don't mention OS or other commercial alternatives, such as UMN 
Mapserver, Postgis, etc. I asked the editors and they agree to include 
additional entries into the encyclopedia if they can be written until 

Are there any volunteers that would be willing to write an entry for 

Additional information is available at 

If you are interested in writing such an entry (3000-4000 words, 8-12 
pages incl figures), please contact me and I'll send you the emails of 
the editors and responsible person at Springer. Entries can be written 
in Word or Latex.

Thanks for your interest,
