I’ll second Helmuts thought on approaching the GeoMoose folks directly on their list.   I’m CC’ing that list here right now to get things moving over there.

Dear Dilum,

thanks for your introduction.

We have to wait a few more days if OSGeo will be selected as GSoC org in 2018 too.

Google will announce it at 12th February.

Looking at the ideas page:


It seems GeoMoose isn't in the list yet. This means they haven't prepared ideas so far.

The best thing may be that you join the GeoMoose ML/community and ask there if they want to join GSoC 2018.

Kind regards

I am a second-year undergraduate and this is my first time at Google Summer of Code. I went through google summer of code 2017 archive and the organizations to get an Idea of GSoC. As well as I went through OSGeo projects.

Since the OSGeo projects were pretty interesting for me, I read the OSGeo GSoC Recommendations for students wiki page and 2018 GSoC Ideas page as the first step.

Since I am new to this organization, I thought of Introduce me to the organization and to other GSoC contributors. When It comes to me, I am a Software Engineering undergraduate at IIT(Sri Lanka) which is affiliated with University of Westminster.

And I am more into web design and development and web-based technologies. In addition to that, I am comfortable with Java and Python.

It would be really appreciated if you could guide me to start with OSGeo for GSoC 2018 as well as I would love to hear from mentors or the developers of the GeoMoose project.


Best Regards
