Upcoming March Issue

The March issue is making good progress towards being published early next week. The theme for March is "Geospatial". Here's a sneak peak at the articles:

Tyler Mitchell, Executive Director of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, discusses the factors needed to get open source geospatial products into the hands of users, the value of marketing open source projects, and the advantages provided by an open source ecoystem.

Mark Lucas, a principal scientist at RadiantBlue Technologies Inc., and Scott Bortman, system architect and primary developer for the OMAR web processing system, introduce the OMAR web based system for archival, retrieval, processing, and distribution of geospatial assets.

Andrew Ross, a Director within the Engineering team at Ingres, provides a primer on geospatial technology and discusses some of the lessons learned from Ingres' geospatial open source project.

Paul Ramsay, a Senior Consultant with OpenGeo, examines how geospatial open source provides an example of the market challenges of a mid-sized vertical market.
