Boundless January 2017 Newsletter

Newsletter Q1 2017

Andy Dearing CEO Boundless Hello,
As we enter the new year, one of our resolutions is to be in closer touch with our friends of Boundless. This inaugural newsletter is the first step, with the goal of keeping you more in-touch with Boundless – product releases, corporate events, technical how-to’s, customer success stories and more.

As we all know, the world of location-based data is exploding with opportunities. With the surge of location-enabled sensors hitting the market, paired with a rich foundational geospatial content sources that exist today, we are only at the beginning of understanding the true potential of what decisions can be made with this information. At Boundless, we believe the best way to make sense of this information is through an open source GIS. Our pledge to you: we will provide world-class resources to help you realize your full potential through an open platform.
One last thing: at Boundless, communication is always a two-way street. The best ideas come from you, our customers and partners. So let us hear from you. Send a note to me at; I really want to hear what we can do to help you!
Thanks, Andy…
