A Minnesota Governor's Geospatial Commendation award was presented at the GIS/LIS Conference in Rochester, Minnesota, October 10, 2013 to:

The City of St. Paul - GeoMOOSE

The City of St. Paul is recognized for its role in the creation and sharing of GeoMOOSE software. GeoMOOSE (Geographic Map Objects Open Source Environments) is an open source web client for displaying distributed geospatial data. It began as an in-house project at the City of St. Paul, developed by Bob Basques, Jim Klassen and Dan Little. Over time, it has evolved into an officially sanctioned project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, and its user list now includes almost 8000 people from around the world.

GeoMOOSE provides an economical web mapping option to enable any organization to serve geospatial information via the web. It is built on open source GIS data and software standards and can consume and display nearly any data format, including proprietary and open source standards such as WMS and WFS. By making geospatial data broadly available, the software enables the use of this data to inform public policy and manage resources.
