Big things are on the way at Boundless that you won’t want to miss! New releases, new products and features, expanded services and launches. We invite you to stay tuned & get in on the action! Can’t wait? As a reader of our newsletter, here’s some insider’s GIS information: premium tools (basemaps!) and services (mobile!)


GIS News

In case you missed the GIS News: The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency awarded a $36 million contract to Boundless Spatial, Inc. The contract supports NGA GEOINT Services and purchases services required to package, deliver, maintain and patch accredited open source spatial software packages. A big THANK YOU to our customer NGA and to our team who delivers time and again. If you’re interested in Boundless, we have solutions that fit within ALL budgets.

Contact to discuss how we can help solve location data challenges.

Community Corner

GIS Community Working Together

Discover what’s new in the GIS community by checking our community corner. Our team of talented devs took their skills on the road and participated in the GeoServer REST API Code Sprint. A lot of progress was made — 310 commits and over 33k lines of code modified (We would say that’s certainly progress!) An exciting improvement is reference documentation, which will be available in Boundless Connect. You can learn more about the GIS advancements to GeoServer here.

Tech Bytes

GIS Technology Updates

Learn about the latest GIS technology and updates in our Tech Bytes. Thanks, Apple©. We love you, but when your updates cause extra work for our devs, not so much. If you are a Boundless Desktop GIS customer, we issued a maintenance release to fix an error encountered with the latest update for macOS. A Windows release will be rolled out in the coming weeks as well. So maybe Apple’s update was a good thing? We’ve added more GIS technology, than just a fix to the releases, because we know a little something extra is always nice.   Read more here
