OSGeo's Google Summer of Code Initiative has been an inspiring and motivating platform for new student developers to join the OSGeo projects, community projects, guest projects, and incubating projects. In 2021, OSGeo is participating for the 15th year in the Google Summer of Code, and it itself is a great achievement. With this talk, the OSGeo GSoC Administrators shall try to put forth the importance of GSoC with respect to the students and participating projects. The admins would focus on the development of projects with GSoC and encourage projects to be a part of the upcoming GSoC.
ZOO-Project is a Web Processing Service (WPS) platform implemented as an Open Source project following the OGC standards. It was released under an MIT X-11 style license and is currently in incubation at OSGeo. It provides a WPS compliant developer-friendly framework easing the creation and chaining of WPS Web services. This presentation gives a brief overview of the platform and summarizes new capabilities and enhancements available in the new version. A brief summary of the Open Source project history with its direct link with FOSS4G will be presented. The new release comes up with a brand new OGC API - Processes (OAPI-P) support. The new functionalities available in the latest release will be presented and described, further highlight their interests for application developers and users. Various use of OSGeo software and others, such as GDAL, GEOS, PostGIS, pgRouting, GRASS, OTB, SAGA-GIS, as WPS or OAPI-P services through the ZOO-Project will be presented. Then, the ongoing developments and future innovations will be explored.
The participants of this year's Google Summer of Code on OSGeo projects and winners of United Nations-OSGeo Education Challenge 2021 will present their work and their experiences contributing to OSGeo projects.
