Boundless Executives Named American Geographical Society Fellows

Brian Monheiser and Anthony Calamito to Work with AGS to Advance Geographic Understanding

New York, NY and Washington, DC - January 26, 2016 - Boundless, the leading provider of open source geospatial software and services, today announced that Brian Monheiser and Anthony Calamito have been named American Geographical Society Fellows. As Fellows, Brian and Anthony will work with the greater community to advance geographic knowledge and understanding.

Established in 1851, the American Geographical Society (AGS) is the oldest professional geographical organization in the United States.  It is recognized world-wide as a pioneer in geographical research and education in geography for over 163 years.  The mission of AGS is to advance geographic knowledge and the recognition of its importance in the contemporary world.  AGS promotes the use of geography in business, government, science, and education with a goal to enhance the nation’s geographic literacy so as to engender sound public policy, national security, and human well-being worldwide.

When the AGS re-launched its Fellows program in April 2015 Dr. John Konarski, the Executive Director of AGS, noted, “To further this mission, we are proud to revive our ‘AGS Fellows’ program, where these geography professionals and enthusiasts can come together as a community of peers to invest their time, resources and intellectual energies in transforming how America develops and leverages geographical knowledge for the benefit our nation and our global society…this new generation of AGS Fellows will help guide our organization, as well as the national discussion about the importance of geography in virtually every aspect of our lives.” 1

Brian Monheiser, Boundless Director of U.S. Federal Programs, is responsible for advising and consulting on all aspects of Boundless technology within the Federal Government, including the Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), and Federal Civilian Agencies (FedCiv) relative to Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT).

Anthony Calamito, Federal Chief Technology Officer for Boundless, ensures requirements from the Federal government are reflected in the technical roadmap.  He serves as a bridge between Boundless’ engineering and professional services teams, and is deeply involved in evangelizing the value of open source geospatial software.

“The AGS mission is invaluable in advancing geographic knowledge and understanding,” noted Andy Dearing, Boundless CEO. “We’re incredibly proud of Brian and Anthony for becoming AGS Fellows, and of the efforts that they are undertaking for the advancement of the AGS’ impressive mission.”
