GeoSolutions is attending GEOINT 2020!

Dear Reader, One of the first actions GeoSolutions USA took was to join USGIF and submit a training proposal to the 2020 GEOINT Symposium, which will take place in Tampa,  April 22-26. Why? Because tools that support open standards are critical to ensure interoperability of GEOINT.   I have provided training for the last 3 years about OGC standards and how they can efficiently support geospatial intelligence needs. This year I will be more practical and talk about robust open source tools (MapStore, GeoServer and GeoNode) that implement open standards and that enable efficient management, dissemination and visualization of raster and vector data. The training titled “Building Interoperable Spatial Data...
