Building upon the success of last year's GIS OPEN SOURCE Summer School, The GIS OPEN SOURCE Summer School 2011  will be held in Girona (Spain) from 28th June to 7th July 2011. The course is organized by the GIS and Remote Sensing Centre (SIGTE) of the University of Girona (Spain) with the collaboration of the Sextante Project and the Centre for Geospatial Science (CGS) of the University of Nottingham (United Kingdom). Jeremy Morley will lead the CGS contribution for the Summer School.

This Summer School will be focused on exploring and building the potential of open data sources (such as Spatial Data Infrastructures) and Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Geomatics.

The key program aims are:

# Act as a platform for Free and Open Source Geospatial (FOSS) teaching, learning and collaboration.
# Provide practical experience to the participants in the use of Free and Open Source Geospatial Software
# Enable participants to understand concepts of cartographic representation, spatial data integration, spatial analysis, designing spatial databases, web mapping etc.
# Show the key stages of a GIS project using FOSS
# Enable the participants to implement a full GIS stack based on FOSS Geospatial technologies
# To develop expertise in using Geospatial Free and Open Source technologies

Participants will learn several methods, techniques and resources that will enable them to work independently in making decisions on issues about the impact on the environment and community.
