You’ve heard it called Open Source GIS and FOSS4G (Free and Open Source Software for Geoinformatics). It may be a “new to you” concept but open source in the GIS field has been around since the mid 70s. This talk is going to cover the “state of open source GIS in 2022” and try to convince you that it can help you and your organization.. It’s no longer this weird scary concept. It’s actually pretty fun and useful these days and works well with all your other software. We will also walk through some demos of QGIS to show you how much fun you could be having.
