The “gvSIG Chair” continues with his activity with the goal of consolidate a meeting point for these persons who are interested in the free geospatial technologies in the third- level education, secondary education and vocational training.

A central part of the Chair is the dissemination of the free geospatial technologies through social networking, with the objective of creating a shared knowledge environment.

That is why we announce the “2nd gvSIG Chair Contest”, with the aim of promoting the use of the free geospatial technologies and encourage to all gvSIG and Geographical Information Systems users to share and give visibility to their jobs.

It is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the application of GIS to the study of the history of cartography and the use of old maps. 

The deadline is November 1st
