The geodata group is a gathering of people who are committed to these objectives:
- Promote the use of open geospatial formats
- Promote public access to state-collected geodata
- Run a repository of open geodata
- Present and explain licenses for public geodata
The Public Geodata pages on the OSGeo community wiki have more information about what work has been done to get to this point, and what the future directions could be.
The Committee homepage on the OSGeo community wiki has details of online meetings. If you’re keen to support the mission above, this would be a good place to register your interest.
