Open Source Geospatial Research and Education Laboratory

 

Logo OSGeoThe OSGeo Research and Education Laboratory (OSGeoREL) is located at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Civil Enginneering, Department of Geomatics, Czech Republic.

Our mission, as one of the laboratories in the OSGeo worldwide network, is to develop collaboration opportunities for academic, industrial, and government organizations in open source GIS software and data (see the announcement and info at GIM).

OSGeo/ICA Memorandum of Understanding

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and the International Cartographic Association (ICA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for developing global open source GIS software and data collaborations for academic, industrial, and government organizations. The MoU aims to provide expertise and support for the establishment of Open Source Geospatial Laboratories and Research Centres across the world for development of open-source geospatial software technologies and training. Laboratories are being established in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas and Australasia which will act as nodes for future expansion of the worldwide network.

Collaboration with Research Groups

Our projects

Our major focus is software development. We are contributing to various international Open Source Geospatial Software projects, namely
