Welcome to the Open Source group!
This group will be discussing open geospatial data, open source software, and their application for risk assessment.
This group will focus on the open-source approach to understanding risk. How can open geospatial data and open source software support risk assessment programs?
How can the requirements articulated in the other Understanding Risk groups be fulfilled via open source software and open data?
What role do transparency and cost play in open-source solutions to risk management?
I’m excited to moderate this broad discussion and look forward to our conversations. Please chime in with a brief intro about yourself, what you’re working on, and what you want to learn about the open-source role in understanding risk. From there, we’ll ladder up to larger themes and multiple discussions, with lots of questions along the way. Your active participation will help create the agenda for the Understanding Risk conference in June.
The conference leadership has asked OpenGeo to lead this group and corresponding panel at the conference. We are looking for thought leaders from this forum to present and discuss their ideas on this panel at the conference. Thank you for your participation, Eddie Pickle
