MapServer Foundation Meeting Prep

The meeting of the MapServer Foundation scheduled for Saturday in Chicago is coming together. Here are some details for those watching from the sidelines:

The attendee list is posted and includes a sort of “who’s who” of open source GIS people from the U.S., Canada and Europe. And, then there are some other folks with interesting affiliations like a representative from LizardTech and one from, a location-based services provider. If you are counting, I found one woman attending, and she works for Autodesk.

An IRC channel has been set aside for those who want to participate: #geofoundation at

If you want to be up on the latest discussions before the meeting, review the latest discussions on the Foundation website.

There’s a new informal poll regarding naming going on, too.
