> FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event bringing together about 5000

> there will be a Geospatial devroom and will be happening on Sunday

> nowadays location and maps are becoming part of many projects/applications,
> which usually use only a small subset of the possibilities the data and
> software offer.

> The geospatial devroom is the place to talk about open, geo-related data
> and software and their ecosystem. This includes standards and tools, e.g.
> for spatial databases, and online mapping, geospatial services, used for
