The foundation created when Autodesk decided to push out it's version of MapServer Enterprise into the Open Source world now has a new name. According to an article
from GIS Café
, there was an organizational meeting the past week in Chicago where the name was decided upon and the new domain name, OSGEO.org
, was laid out.
The organization will focus on (surprise!) Open Source Geospatial libraries and packages. Their home page now has links for Grass, MapServer, GDAL, and a number of other well-known packages, although I'm a bit unclear as to what the relationship with each will be.
Autodesk will be the first sponsor.
