FOSSGIS 2016The FOSSGIS conference (Free and Open Source Software for Geographical Information Systems) takes place annually, usually in Germany. This year it takes place in Salzburg, Austria. Tickets are still available. Register here. Registration is free for OSM contributors.

This big conference has included OpenStreetMap as a large part of the programme, and has welcomed OpenStreetMap community attendees throughout the history of our project. We gave a round-up of local SOTM conferences previously. Essentially FOSSGIS is the local “State Of The Map” conference for the German-speaking part of the world. With over 400 attendees last year, this is a big event in general, and a big event on the OpenStreetMap calendar!

This year the conference also features a special “OSM Sunday” in the run up to the main conference. Sunday July 3rd is a day dedicated to OpenStreetMap topics. Don’t miss it! On top of that, around half of the presentations, lightning talks and workshops during the week at the conference will be on OpenStreetMap topics (other topics being around open source geo software). And don’t forget the big social event on Tuesday, July 5th.

    Our warmest greetings from the Geocode.Farm ( ) Team.

    Since the meet is not in Germany (as it usually is), where most of our staff is located, we’re sad to say most of us won’t be making it. 🙁

    With that said, are you going to be posting a recap?

    As each year, we’ll have our great Video Team at Salzburg again who will record every single talk. We also did have live streams the last 2(?) years and I guess they’ll make it this year again.
