About Us


First Open Source Geospatial Laboratory in Croatia is located at University of Zagreb, Faculty of Geodesy. Our mission is to follow OSGeo/ICA Memorandum of Understanding by supporting development of open-source geospatial software technologies, training and expertise.

The lab is run by members of Institute for Geomatics and Institute for Cartography and Photogrammetry and is strongly connected with partners (see Collaboration and People).

Our goal is to provide training, education and to support development of open source geospatial software as well as free geospatial data. We work to create opportunities for academia, industry and government in open source GIS to support OSGeo Labs mission "Making geospatial education and opportunities accessible to all".
