sharing reuse awards 600x332 gvSIG receives the award for the best European open source projectLast week the gvSIG project received the European Commission award for the best European open source project in the highest category (Cross border) at “Sharing and Reuse Awards”.

This prize is an important recognition of the career of the gvSIG project, which was born in the Generalitat Valenciana and has created a new software production model led by the gvSIG Association, based on collaboration, solidarity and shared knowledge.

It started as a project to develop a desktop GIS and now it is a complete suite to address any need related to geomatics, with the integration of the geographic component in information systems. Currently the software under the gvSIG brand is used in more than 160 countries.
All of this has played a significant role in the decision of the European Commission, evaluation criteria of which have been: solution design, solution governance, impact/results, level of use and sustainability.

From the gvSIG Association, we would like to thank the Generalitat Valenciana for its commitment to this project, as well as all the organizations that have contributed and contribute currently to the sustainability of the project, relying on the professional services of the gvSIG Association.

Finally we want to dedicate this award to all the workmates of the gvSIG Community that have worked to bring the name of gvSIG around the world during these years.

A rising number of software vendors are targeting the agriculture space with increasingly useful solutions. And a new generation of drones is delivering much needed functionality,” said Colin Snow, CEO and Founder of Skylogic Research, LLC.  “This paper offers what agronomists and crop specialists have learned about what works and what doesn’t and discusses what’s next for this industry.”

To meet demand, we’ve added a special enterprise track for agriculture to the InterDrone 2017 program,” said Conference Chairman Ted Bahr, “and we had to add an extra exhibit hall to fit the growing number of enterprise vendors in the commercial drone space. Attendance for InterDrone 2017 is running 11 weeks ahead of last year,” said Bahr.

InterDrone is the world’s largest event dedicated to commercial drones and expects to host more than 4,000 commercial drone buyers and flyers who will learn at more than 125 sessions. More than 185 exhibitors will be showing the latest drones and related technology in the three-day exposition. InterDrone 2017 is an Emerald Expositions event being produced and managed by BZ Media.
