What is Open Source (GIS)?
    Open source means that the source code is available to the general public for use, distribution, and modification from its original design free of charge (among a long list of other requirements). While most open source geospatial software is built on the standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) the term “Open Source” it is not synonymous with Open Standards because both proprietary and open source software can be compliant with the OGC Open Standards http://www.opengeospatial.org OSGeo is the organization that supports the development of the highest quality open source geospatial software.http://www.osgeo.org
