GvSIG: 36 themes of the Sixth Conference

From December 1 to 3, the sixth edition of the gvSIG Conference will be held in Valencia. This event is one of the best continuous strategies that the organization has promoted for the sustainability of a software that never ceases to surprise due to its potential in penetrating the global market.

Sixth dates Little by little, free software has been taking valuable spaces in a niche where proprietary software has a lot to offer. In the case of gvSIG, it is distinguished by being a Hispanic initiative, with an interesting comprehensive vision and a hard effort to systematize both the processes and experiences of its application.

The jungle of free geospatial initiatives is broad, you just have to see the summary of presentations that I showed of what was the FOSS4G 2010. We are aware that many of these initiatives will not have a sustainable eco unless they unify efforts for self-sustaining community-based continuity. In this regard, we all hope that in a few years the gvSIG initiative will be recognized as one of the models born of satisfaction in use, rather than altruism for free fashion; as what says Álvaro Angiux:

The Community found in gvSIG a project where collaboration and shared knowledge were part of its genetic code, found a project where the technical aspects were important; It could not be otherwise, but they were not the only ones.

The thematic areas that will be covered in these Conference will be, among others:

  • Geodesy
  • Navigation
  • Photogrammetry
  • Mapping
  • Geotelematics
  • Geodesy and Navigation
  • Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing
  • Cartography and GIS
  • High resolution sensors and their applications.

All the papers have a Spanish-English translation and vice versa when the presentation is in English. A month after starting, a preliminary agenda has been published, although we must be aware of the Final program In parallel, there are SEXTANTE, NAVTABLE, IDE, GRASS, gvSIG Mini and Desarrollo gvSIG 2.0 workshops; also in days before the day will be held the EclipseDay-MoskittDay and CodeSprint.
