I am Maning Sambale an free and open source user for several years. I
work in the geomatics unit of a non-profit research institution .
Our focus is mostly research on natural resources, watershed
management, conservation and community mapping in many areas of
At work, we use mostly QGIS, GRASS-GIS and more recently on webmapping
with mapserver, geoserver, openlayers, etc.
As a hobby, I also contribute to the crowdsource mapping project
called openstreetmap .
I hope this list can be a venue to share experiences related to free

hope we can do collaborative projects to expand adoption and use of
osgeo applications in the country.
