The Sol Katz Award for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial
(FOSS4G) is awarded annually by OSGeo to individuals who have

Anita Graser’s speech after receiving the Sol Katz Award
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
“As people working in open source projects, we are constantly reminded
that we are all standing on the shoulders of giants.
However, particularly this year, we also see just how important small
personal connections are. For me, my involvement with open source
communities really took off when I joined the QGIS hackfest in Vienna in
2009 and I felt that my participation was really appreciated and
welcome. I couldn’t imagine being without these connections anymore.

Thank you to the whole QGIS community, particularly my fellow PSC
members both current and former: Tim, Andreas, Jürgen, Richard, Paolo,
Otto, Marco Hugentobler, Alessandro, our new chair Marco Bernasocchi,
and of course QGIS founder Gary Sherman for starting this awesome
project and for still being around and actively promoting geospatial
open source by publishing so many great books covering multiple
different OSGeo projects.

I’d also like to thank my partner and my family for being incredibly
understanding whenever I’m spend my time geeking out over a new
programming project, data analysis, forum question, or conference talk.

Thank you also to my friends, colleagues and fellow members of the
larger OSGeo community for sharing ideas, providing valuable feedback,
and spreading the word about all the great work that’s going on all
around us.

I’m constantly amazed by all the innovation happening to nourish and
grow our community. And I’m looking forward to continue being a part of
these efforts.

Thank you! “
