The ICA-OSGeo Lab Network and MundoGEO are now pleased to inform the sixth webinar of the ”Open Geospatial Science & Applications” webinar series on April 28th. The webinar will be open and free to all on first come register basis.

This webinar will be on OpenStreetMap (OSM), a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. OpenStreetMap is much more than a set of data. In this webinar, we would like to show a good portion of the possibilities that OSM offers.

The webinar – by Lluís Vicens – doesn’t consists of a full inventory of tools and techniques, but is intended to offer a first approach to the OSM universe. We want to put the basis, and to establish a starting point to explore all the possibilities by yourself.

We will see, first of all, what data can we download from OpenStreetMap and how it can be downloaded in a personalized way, employing customizable criteria. In addition to downloading, we’ll look at other tools that add value to OSM: editors, importers to databases, geolocation services, image rendering, routing algorithms, etc.

Attendees will be able to interact with the speakers by sending their comments and questions through chat. All attendees of this web seminar will receive certificates for their participation.
