The U.S. Department of Labor has identified the Geospatial industry as one of the highest growing in the coming decades. The need to train workers in all aspects of GIS is evident. Proprietary software is the current standard in the U.S., but other countries across the globe have a different take on how they use GIS. Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) has a wide install base in Europe and Asia. It is also catching on in South America and Africa. As a GIS professional or someone interested in the field, FOSS4G is a quick way to gain additional skills and develop your career. Hear from experts working in the FOSS4G area speak about the potential for growth in the U.S. and elsewhere.
