FOSS4G SOTM Oceania 2023 conference

October 16 - October 20

The 2023 FOSS4G SOTM Oceania 2023 conference will be held in Auckland between 16 -20 October, 2023 at the University of Technology, Auckland.

FOSS4G SotM Oceania – Yeah, We Know That’s A Mouthful. Here’s What It Means.

So let’s break it down — ‘Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial‘ or FOSS4G if you’re a fan of efficiency (we are) is the name given to the conferences of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). OSGeo is a non-profit with a mission to foster and promote the adoption of open source geospatial technology. All of this is done within the broader context of open source software philosophy and participatory community driven development.

State of the Map‘ or SotM is the conference of the **OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) which supports the development of a free and open editable world map. This takes the form of the community driven OpenStreetMap project.

Oceania‘ – no acronyms here – This is the part of the world which is quite, well, ocean-y. Think Moana. Technically, Wikipedia tells us it’s the geographic region made up of Australasia, Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. Are you from Oceania? Register now! Not from Oceania? We want you too! Come visit us!


All Together Now!

FOSS4G SotM Oceania is the regional chapter of the larger global community and the chance to merge the two conferences into one exciting Oceania centered event. We are recognised as local chapters of OSGeo and the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF).
