First Open Source Geospatial Laboratory in Croatia is located at University of Zagreb, Faculty of Geodesy. Our mission is to follow OSGeo/ICA Memorandum of Understanding by supporting development of open-source geospatial software technologies, training and expertise.
The lab is run by members of Faculty of Geodesy and is strongly connected with partners (see Collaboration and People).
Our goal is to provide training, education and to support development of open source geospatial software as well as free geospatial data. We work to create opportunities for academia, industry and government in open source GIS to support OSGeo Labs mission “Making geospatial education and opportunities accessible to all”.
OSGL members are involved in organizing educational events for students and others interested. Topics on these events include OpenStreetMap editing and data usage, Linux and OSGeo software learning and open source software for data collection (e.g. SLAM). We are also active in development of PROJ4 and GDAL, and we created and maintain two QGIS plugins (see our Github pages at https://github.com/GEOF-OSGL).
