The Open Source Geospatial Foundation has a growing number of local, regional and countrywide chapters. OSGeo Chapters offer a great way to connect with the open source geospatial community in your area and provide opportunities to network and share.
Many of these Chapters hold events, offer support, training and explore advocacy opportunities in their area. Chapters can also form around a specific language or industry supporting a geographical diverse community. Each Chapter is different with a mix of GIS professionals, academic champions, software developers and service providers eager to share their stories and help you start your open source journey. To discover a group near you please visit the chapter website, we are looking forward to welcoming you.
