OSGeoLive is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around.
It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and documentation.
OSGeoLive is an OSGeo project used in several workshops at FOSS4Gs around the world.
OSGeoLive 13.0 will be released at the end of July 2019 ready for FOSS4G 2019.
Still working on the improvements initiated for OSGeoLive 12.0, it will embedded latest stable version of a vast choice of Open Source Geospatial software. The work on the geodata science with Python and R stacks have also been continued. Documentation is also a big building area and we made a proposal to Google Season of Docs in order to get it even better. We would like to encourage people around the world to help us translate it.
This presentation will reflect what we did for OSGeoLive 13.0, what choices have been made, what we plan to do for 14.0 and after.
