Boundless Finds Receptive Audiences at Broad Array of Industry Gatherings

New York, NY & Washington, DC - April 1, 2014 — Boundless, the leading provider of open source geospatial software and services, has a full calendar of events this month thanks to a growing emphasis on open source across the geospatial industry.

“Both the volume and breadth of events including open source issues on their agenda are strong indicators of the growing interest in this industry-changing trend,” said Boundless CEO Eddie Pickle.  “The pace of development today on web, PC, and mobile necessitates a flexible approach that simply cannot be achieved in the traditional proprietary model.  Open source solutions can help customers integrate with existing technologies while putting in place a foundation to include geospatial capabilities in future applications.”
