Relationship with OSGeo
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) during the European Geoscience Union (EGU) General Assembly in Vienna on April 9 2018.
The aim of the agreement is to develop coordinated activities and share expertise by promoting sustainable open science through reliable open source geospatial software, open datasets and related resources, especially for early career scientists. Specifically both organizations through the MOU will work together to:
- improve scientific recognition for open software and open resource-related efforts by suitable citation standards and best-practices.
- hold joint international workshops and conference sessions on open geo-datasets and open source geospatial software for the geophysical sciences.
The liaison between both organizations ensures good information flow and cooperation.
