This week Ruth Schönbucher from our Partner CSGIS CSGIS(Munich / Immenstadt, Germany) joined the 3 day class Interoperable Web GIS Solutions with Free and Open Source Geospatial software as a class assistant. Dec 2011 OS Web Mapping Class picture
The class was taught in Seattle at Office Nomads on Capitol Hill, October 3rd through October 5th, 2011. Ruth wanted to to renew her Open Source Web GIS skills (having written a MapServer book some years ago). We are sure that this will be the start for an intensive business partnership and GIS knowledge exchange between CSGIS and Terra GIS.
