State of OSGeo Oceania
10-18, 15:35– (Pacific/Auckland), Plenary

An open discussion about OSGeo Oceania, who we area, what we've done and where we're going.

OSGeo Oceania was founded in 2019 on the back of the success of our first conference in Melbourne. Since that time we’ve run two in-person conferences and two in-pandemic events, we’ve supported dozens of micro grants across the region and we continue to sustain a financially viable organisation that supports our open geospatial community here in Oceania.

This talk will go over our history, define our purpose and what our goals are, discuss our present situation in terms of what’s working and what’s not and will outline some ideas for the future of OSGeo Oceania. It will aim to be a discussion, and an open forum for input, questions and comment.
