Kurt and I are in Nødebo, Denmark home of Skovskolen, the Forest and Landscape  College of the University of Copenhagen.  We are here to participate in the 2017 QGIS Conference & Developer meeting. QGIS is a mapping software that is unique in that it is a free and open source (FOSS) program.  FOSS means that it is created, shared and supported by a grass roots community, as opposed to a top down corporate model. There are  29 countries represented here from 6 continents. Kurt and I are the only people from North America. We are sleeping in the student dorms. The food is superb and the weather is rain, rain, rain, which is a welcome change for the New Mexicans, but the Danes are ready for sunshine.
