EMPOWER OPEN SOURCE MAKERS
We help researchers grow by connecting them with peer networks, improving their programming skills, and making their research more open and reproducible. We especially encourage and empower under-represented researchers (e.g. those from ODA-recipient countries and female researchers) through public and on-demand educational content.
PROMOTE BEST PRACTICES
We promote and actively support the production, sharing and use of Open GeoData (based on the Open Knowledge Foundation licenses). We provide platforms, tools, standards and training to encourage and support Open Geodata and reproducible research shared using open web services and open standards.
