Our aim is for developing collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and government organizations in open source GIS software and data in the UK. The lab will build up the profile of OSGeo activities in the UK and provide opportunities for excellent students to work on various OSGeo projects. We are pleased to inform that within this short time, some of our students have won awards for their excellent research carried out at the lab (For example- Best spatial analysis paper award at GISRUK 2011,  prestigious fully funded PhD scholarships etc) . We are hoping to provide more opportunities for staff and students to work on various open source projects and build collaboration opportunities in the future.
