In this blog, I talk about open source geospatial software, cool mapping applications and toys... and anything I might find of interest.
My name is Daniel Morissette, I am an open source geospatial software developer, mostly interested in webmapping and data access and distribution. I have been an active developer and user of open source geospatial software since 1999 and have led and/or contributed to several open source projects over the years, the two main ones being MapServer and GDAL/OGR. I am an active member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and several of my posts will relate to projects and activities of the OSGeo community.
I also have entrepreneurial tendencies, and after co-founding DM Solutions Group in 1998, I have been leading Mapgears since 2006. We are based in Chicoutimi, Quebec and our team provides technical support, training and software development services to users of MapServer and related Open Source Web Mapping technologies.
This blog is bilingual (English/French), with the English posts targeted at the international geospatial community, and the French ones targeted at the Quebec and to some extents the global Francophone geospatial community. Some posts may be translated and others not, depending on the topic and the target audience.
I hope you enjoy reading me and look forward to hearing back from you.
