FOSS4G is the acronym for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial. It is the annual recurring global event hosted by the OSGeo Foundation since it’s inception in 2006, with over 1,200 attendees, who gather to discuss the passion for Open sharing of geospatial software, data, and standards. Its predecessors were rooted in the GRASS GIS and MapServer communities and can be traced back to FOSS4G-Thailand in 2004.
We have to go back in 2007 for the last time a FOSS4G was held in Canada. The organizing committee believes that it is time to bring this event back to Canada, and have brought 3 local chapters of OSGeo together to make this happen (OSGeo-Ottawa, OSGeo-Quebec, and OSGeo-Atlantic Canada). Let’s celebrate the biggest Open geospatial event in the world in Eastern Canada in 2020!
