Day 1. Welcome and Introduction
We will introduce the concept of Free Software and Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G), as well as the OSGeo Foundation. Alternatively, an Introduction to Free and Open Data and the OpenStreetMap Foundation will be conducted. After this introduction we will introduce Postgres + PostGIS as a GeoDatabase and pgAdmin as the administrative user Interface. From there we will describe how to get and download OSM data from a general level to a more detailed level, and we will do some training about how to properly import the data into PostGIS using different command-line based programs: oms2pgsql, osmosis, imposm
The general session will be a combination of theoretical sessions, along with hands-on training sessions.
