Welcome to OSGL@CAGIS !!
The Open Source Geospatial Laboratory at the Center for Applied GIScience (OSGL@CAGIS), established on September 5th, 2013, is a joint initiative of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) and the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).
As a member of OSGeo founding laboratory, the OSGL@CAGIS places its emphasis on the 1) development of open source GIS software packages and 2) application of these software packages and associated data as well as standards into geospatial studies. We are seeking collaboration opportunities with academic institutions, private sectors, and government agencies related to open-source GIS (development and application).
