Thanks to everyone for a great FOSS4G-NA 2016 event. The North American edition of FOSS4G had it all – a wonderful opening keynote, a diverse program selection and most importantly a chance to meet the community and customers who make Boundless successful.
One of the joys of working at Boundless is the chance to attend community events and promote the open source projects and community we work with.
We would love an opportunity to talk with you about the value of open source, migrating away from proprietary technologies, and community participation and support. Please look for us at the following events in May:
The Boundless distribution of QGIS 2.14.1 is out the door! We are excited to share with you our latest offering, built upon the premier open-source desktop GIS technology from the QGIS project. The Boundless release is available here and is a major update that includes many new features, such as:
We recently announced the availability of Boundless Exchange – the press release covers the basics of the product and what’s included, so we’ll take this opportunity to highlight a few capabilities and show how quickly you can start using Boundless Exchange within your organization.
We here at Boundless are asked on many occasions what routing technologies we prefer to use to solve simple and complex routing challenges. We decided it would be a good idea to provide an evaluation and assessment of a few open-source routing technologies for those of you looking to integrate routing into your enterprise. Read below to review our findings and recommendations!
On behalf of the entire Boundless team, we would like to take a minute and thank all of those who participated in our Evening with Boundless. The event was held on February 24th at Busboys and Poets in downtown DC, and was a great opportunity for our team to meet the ever-growing open source user base over some good food and a few adult beverages!
Do you like what3words, but want to access it via your open source GIS platform? Look no further than the new QGIS plugin powered by what3words’ innovative geocoding service. Boundless, in partnership with what3words, released the what3words QGIS plugin, which enables search using the what3words API.
It has often been said that it’s easier to build something from scratch than it is to maintain it. New things have a shine to them. They allow for nice press releases with the team pointing and say “look at this thing we just built!“.
Maintenance isn’t nearly as exciting. And yet, it’s maintenance that allows products and services to be refined and improved. Who ever saw software at version 1.0 that was better than 2.0? Not me.
All this is a rather long way of announcing that we have just released a thoroughly updated and improved version of our online GeoServer course.
And you can sign up right now!
As more organizations migrate their capabilities to enterprise architectures, information and systems security are a necessary part of overall system integrity. Organizations use Certification and Accreditation (C&A) processes to ensure their information systems and software meet standards for risk management.
