Selected Project Ideas
Create a Portable OSM Toolkit
Proposed by: Cristiano Giovando (link to proposal)
Summary: The goal of this project is to create a customized version of OSGeo Live to include a specific set of tools for working with OpenStreetMap data. The development can either enhance the current OSGeo Live by adding tools, or else create a separate streamlined version with just OSM tools and a smaller subset of GIS utilities. The final product will be used for training, outreach and easy field work deployment.
Skills Required: Debian packaging, bash, Java, Python
