Conference introduction

How Debian supports OpenStreetMap applications

About speaker


I'm a physicist by profession and a Debian developer since 1998. After creating the Debian Med project in 2002 I extended the principle of user oriented projects inside Debian (so called Debian Pure Blends) and also tried to apply the principles developed in the Debian Med team into other teams like Debian Science, DebiChem and Debian Edu. I dived into the Debian GIS team in 2013 and was able to help to some extend here.

Conference description

OpenStreetMap applications are evolving more and more and sometimes it is hard to find out what applications exist and which of them is fitting the actual problem a user might have. The Debian GIS team tries to also cover OSM applications (besider other GIS software) but it could surely need more help to fight trough the jungle of OSM software. This talk should draw a scetch about the role of OSM software in side Debian and how you (yes, you the audience of this talk) might be able to help enhancing the situation to create a nice environment covering all OSM tasks.
