The 4th Open Source Geospatial Research and Education Symposium (OGRS) is a meeting dedicated to exchanging ideas on and results from development and use of open source geospatial software in both research and education.
The main scope of the 2016 Symposium was within the general scope of past OGRS events (see details and articles on the www.ogrs-community.org website). In summary, the 2016 symposium aimed at bringing together students, technicians, researchers, developers and teachers working in different disciplines but with the common interest of using and developing Open Source Geospatial software and Open Data (when managed using Geospatial Open Source software).
OGRS'2016 was an exchange platform that offered two days of scientific presentations and one day of Workshops. Grouped by thematic sessions, presentations (including posters as well) were about original and recent research results, educational practices and innovation experiences. Workshops were hands-on sessions on a specific theme and software with an educational component, reinforcing the education side of the Symposium.
The Symposium also offered the time for networking from the ice breaker to the social event with a conference dinner organized in the beautiful downtown Perugia.
