Your effort sounds great, and I see that a couple folks from
Sinica are already members of our OSGeo Taiwan chapter and have
listed your site as an important resource.


I looked around our web site, and our project info sheets and
was unable to details license information on the content.  It
is certainly our intent that the material be open source and so
as an officer of OSGeo I grant you permission to use the product
info sheets (ie. http://www.osgeo.org/gdal_ogr) under the same terms
we apply to the wiki:

I'm cc:ing our web site committee since we really ought to clarify this
on our web site and good luck with your effort!
