After 10 international FOSS4G conferences, various national FOSS4G's (e.g., in Germany and Belgium) it is finally time for a FOSS4GNL (Netherlands). This event will be in Groningen and hosted by RUG (University of Groningen).

If you are interested in "Free and Open Source Software for Geography", you are welcome on Wednesday, the 28th of June. For more information, see http://foss4g.nl

Dear OSGeo community, students,


* according to the Google Summer of Code 2017 Timeline [1]:

April 3 16:00 UTC Student application deadline

there will be only 7 days left for student applications.


* @Students:

Browse the ideas page at [2] and carefully read the recommendation for
students, particularly the application instructions at [3].


* Quoting verbatim from Google Admins:

"Historically, the students with the best proposals reach out to the orgs early to receive
feedback before submitting their final proposal."

So don't wait until it is to late to give you feedback, but instead join the communication
channels of your chosen software community and discuss over the proposal.


Please forward this email to your software communities

Happy coding!

The OSGeo GSoC Team

US Army CERL started GRASS GIS development in early 80s. Since then, researches around the world have been selecting GRASS GIS as a platform for their new tools. Early on GRASS GIS got 3D view, advanced interpolation methods, hydrology and image processing tools. 3D rasters and time series are now standard data types at the same level as vectors or rasters. Recent developments include novel landform detection, tangible user interface and spatio-temporal algebra. This talk covers all of this and will show why you should start using GRASS GIS today.
