The launch of the Open Source Geospatial Lab at thePete Fisher Laboratory for Geocomputation atthe University of Leicester, United Kingdom  was formally announced byThe President and Vice Chancellor of University of LeicesterProfessor Paul Boyle at the GISRUK conference yesterday. I want to thank all colleagues at the University of Leicester for working together for making this possible. Once again excellent work that they all did to organise the GISRUK conference again at Leicester (after 25 years) following the great footsteps of Pete Fisher. It is a great way to carry on his legacy for the future generations with the launch of Open Source Geospatial Lab at the University of Leicester.
The Open Source Geospatial Lab at thePete Fisher Laboratory for Geocomputation will be a guiding light for Open Principles in Geo education and research globally …It will help spread the importance of kindness and sharing values tohelp create a world that is more accessible, equitable and full of innovation and opportunities for everyone.
PS: It was excellent to see many colleagues yesterday . I had to leave immediately after the first session because of other commitments. I look forward to expanding our collaborations.
