Hi all,

Thought I'd email the UK OSGeo list first - we have a few new projects 
where for an experienced Python & PostgreSQL & PostGIS developer  via a 
series contracts or possibly full time employment - this is probably 
more suited to freelancers / self employed unless companies have very 
competitive rates.

The projects include:
1.  Spatial / Temporal grid creation via PostgreSQL (and possibly 
PostGIS) with automation of analysis with Python and output via GRASS.  
This is for predictive crime modelling.  This will be made available 
Open Source primarily for Local Crime and Disorder Partnerships.  The 
specification / methodology has been proven and we'll need someone with 
strong Python skills to complete the automation and GRASS integration - 
minimal GRASS than creating 'hotspot' map output.

2.  Continued development of our FTP Replication software written in 
Python.  This module packages up changes to a PostgreSQL database and 
filesystem and replicates via FTP to a remote server.  The restoration 
at that server is then initiated via HTTP calls to a web service.  There 
are reasons (single direction, secure networks) why we've developed this 
instead of using software such as SLONY etc

3.  Further development of our Geo Analysis module inside PostGIS 
including what we term as 'Geographic Pivot Tables' - taking point data 
and transforming against boundaries to provide pivot table summaries

4.  Development / Extension of a WPS with GRASS (probably pyWPS) - 
enhancements to provide additional processes.  These will probably be 
released back as open source.

These are a few tasters of the projects we currently have.  If you are 
interested please drop me an email with the above subject line
