New York, NY, October 14, 2011 —  Eddie Pickle, Senior Vice President of OpenGeo, the open source geospatial software company behind the OpenGeo Suite will participate on a panel discussing open source technologies at the GEOINT 2011 Symposium. The panel, Demonstration of Military Relevant Open Source Geospatial Software, will be hosted by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OpenGEO), Military Open Source Software Working Group (MIL-OSS), and the USGIF Tradecraft Subcommittee.

The session will be moderated by John Scott, Senior Systems Engineer and Open Technology Lead, RadiantBlue; Co-Chairman, Open Source for America; and Dr. Christopher Tucker, USGIF Board Member. When describing the event Dr. Tucker noted: “We are looking forward to our panel members to discussing opportunities for co-development and innovation that open source geospatial software enables for government, military and intelligence agencies, and their private sector partners.”

Mr. Pickle, who brings 25 years of experience in geospatial solutions to the panel, has noticed an increase in interest and awareness for open source solutions: "GEOINT is well known as the most influential and forward thinking intelligence conference in the United States. Open source sessions at GEOINT, and the growth of the Mil-OSS community are clear indicators that these solutions are gaining wide acceptance."
