Last saturday I arrived from FOSS4G 2009, this year despite less assistants came, it has been as interesting as every year.
Prodevelop did 2 presentations. At the first “gvSIG Mini. OSM for almost every phone” gvSIG mini was presented, the new map client for mobile phones with routing support and address and points of interest search. It was a complete success with several hundreds of downloads the first day.
Because of my relation with gvSIG Mobile I tried to assist some interesting presentations related with mobility and GIS and location services. Mainly:
- Open Web Processing Services for Improving Accuracy of GPS tracks using Filtering and Map-Matching by Dr. Xianfeng Song, Venkatesh Raghavan and Daisuke Yoshida
- Anatomy of a digital field mapping with BeeGIS by Andrea Antonello, Silvia Franceschi and Mauro Dedonatis
- goGPS: a navigation software to enhance the accuracy of low cost GPS receivers by Eugenio Realini
Every of those provided valuable information and made me come back to Spain with a lot of new ideas and collaboration proposals.
Every year FOSS4G website updates for hosting all the presentation slides and materials so, if you were not at FOSS4G this year please check the site periodically to download them.
