Episode 7

Breaking down barriers with open source and FOSS4G

Open source software is changing the world and growing a strong community from around the globe. In this episode of Location Matters, we speak with two Australian open source GIS enthusiasts, Nyall Dawson and John Bryant. 

Heavily involved in the open geospatial community, Nyall and John chat with our host Sarah Butler about everything open source related - from QGIS being used by Indigenous people to care for country, to the online communities built for like-minded Geospatial enthusiasts. If you are looking to get involved in the open geospatial community, this podcast is for you!
