The Evolution of the GeoNode Community

The GeoNode project has grown from an idea and a handful of early partners 5 years ago to a large and thriving open source project and downstream ecosystem. This talk will discuss the cast of characters and organizations that currently contribute to GeoNode, how this community has grown and evolved over time and the growing pains encountered and lessons learned in the process. Particular focus will be paid to the technical and collaborative aspects of growing and managing a diverse community, looking at how new community members are brought into the fold and how the resources that organizations with different needs and requirements bring to the table are marshaled most effectively to achieve economies of scale when developing new features. The GeoNode community has begun a quantitative analysis of organizational return on investment from open source and initial results of this study will also be presented.

Building Sustainable Resilient Communities with FOSS4G and Open Data

Effective Disaster Risk Management (DRM) programs can make a significant difference in how communities prepare and respond to disasters. Countries that are most vulnerable to natural hazards, but where fewer investments in DRM programs are made, often suffer from the inability to collect, share and effectively use available risk information. Contributing factors to the problem are the costs of procuring, managing and sharing data, the expertise and training required to analyze the information, and the poor implementation of interoperability standards. The Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI) seeks to address these challenges by applying the concepts of open data, community mapping, and open source geospatial software with a keystone role. As a World Bank sponsored initiative, OpenDRI supports DRM programs across the globe to build capacity and long-term ownership of open data projects that rely on open source software like Geonode, QGIS, and InaSAFE. This talk will discuss: Benefits and advantages of using FOSS4G in DRM and development programs Key success stories from OpenDRI and Code for Resilience (CfR) projects Challenges and strategies in building sustainable open source communities for international development and DRM
