FOSS4G Europe Conference also announced a “Training School: FOSS4VGI – Using Free and Open Source Software with VGI: integration, analysis and visualization”.

Politecnico di MilanoComo Campus will host a Training School sponsored by COST Action TD1202 “Mapping and the Citizen Sensor” from July 12 to 14, 2015. This event will run immediately before the FOSS4G Europe international conference that Politecnico di Milano is organizing on July 15-17 at the same venue.

Objective of Training School:

The Training School (TS) has two key goals which are consistent with the goal of the COST Action involving “Mapping and the Citizen Sensor”:

  1. Provide attendees with skills to use FOSS4G to create and manipulate Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI)
  2. Demonstrate how to use, manipulate and visualize VGI data and how it can be integrated with other geospatial datasets
