Last week I had the pleasure to attend the combined FOSSGIS , AGIT and GI_Forum conferences in Salzburg. It was a great joint event bringing together GIS user and developers from industry and academia, working with both open source and commercial GIS.

I was particularly impressed by the great FOSSGIS video team. Their tireless work makes it possible to re-watch all FOSSGIS talks (in German).

I also had the pleasure to give a few presentations. Most of all, it was an honor to give the AGIT opening keynote, which I dedicated to Open Source, Open Data & Open Science.

In addition, I also gave one talk related to an ongoing research project on pedestrian routing. It was really interesting to see that other people – in particular from the OSM community – also talked about this problem during FOSSGIS:

To wrap up this great week, Astrid Emde, Andreas Hocevar, and myself took the chance to celebrate the 10th anniversary of OSGeo during AGIT2016 OSGeo Day .
