It is with great pleasure that we announce our involvement in FOSS4G 2019 as a SUPPORTER SPONSOR as well as providing mentorship during the EO Data Challenge.
FOSS4G is the acronym for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial. It is the annual recurring global event hosted by OSGeo since its inception in 2006, in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The aim of FOSS4G is to create an event that would offer all geospatial senior or junior professionals, students, professors the possibility to get together and talk about free and open source software for geospatial storage, processing and visualization; a place where you see the latest developments, find out the latest new super library or hear about the new innovative products and services.
In 2019 the OSGeo Local Chapter of Romania won the honor of organizing the geospatial event of the year between 26th and 30th of August 2019 in Bucharest.
The FOSS4G EO Data Challenge is meant for startups, developers, students and researchers to come up with useful, valuable or interesting open source applications using large volumes of EO data (and their evolution in time) and state-of-the art technologies (AI/ML, HMC, STAC, data cube, COG).
