GeoSolutions Open to Partnership Worldwide
The last year was very excited, since GeoSolutions was able to promote open source solutions,, not only in North America, but in Central and South America. I found that there is a growing interest, from technology integrators, in not only using open source, but also in providing solutions based on Open Source. In particular GeoServer is the technology most solutions providers are interested in, because it has proven to be a very robust server to publish geospatial data.
I’m happy to report that our first official GeoSolutions partner was from Medellin, Colombia, the country were I was born. The company is HyG Consultores S.A.A. They specialized in the development and integration of geographic information systems using open standards. The partnership will enable HyG to provide scalable and robust GIS solutions based on GeoServer technologies.
The second partner, RSI Softech India PVT LTD, was funded in 1985 as the first Indian Geomatics Company. They provide Data Services, Geo Cloud Deployment, Web App, Enterprise Portals Development, ERP Integration and state-of-the-art security solutions to defense and home land security forces across the globe.
It makes me very happy to see that robust and affordable technologies can be placed in countries that probably don’t have as much resource as the US to spend in GIS technology.
