Open Source Blueprint

Open source has a long standing relationship with academic studies, both as working examples and as something to study in its own right. We are always happy when a student ducks into a project with useful contributions and it is even more rare that the contribution is documentation.

Recently Michelle Ballinger has been writing up an "Blueprint for Creating an Open Source Web Map" which includes a section on uDig. It is nice to see Penn State encouraging students to get out there in the world and make positive contributions; and it makes a change from the endless survey requests open source projects are asked to fill out each year.

If all goes well we will collect these instructions for the uDig online help. Thanks for taking part in open source Michelle.
