I graduated in Geography applied to the environment, landscape and tourism from University of Genoa (Italy) in 2008. During the first year of my studies I approached GIS software and I viewed them as my future job! Then I started playing with Free and Open Source GIS software, especially with GRASS GIS. For my thesis, about a small ski and thermal resort in the north-west of Italy called Lurisia, I used such software for geographic data analysis and mapping.
2010 Ambiente Italia: project for the sampling of the rubbish bins, by collecting spatial points using GPS of several municipalities in the Province of Arezzo
2010 R3-GIS: feasibility study for the detection of insolation on the pitch through LIDAR data
2008 – 2010 FEM-IASMA: I developed a webGIS application for the prediction and characterization of vineyards named Harvassist. It was created using only Free software:
- PostgreSQL-PostGIS as databas
- ExtJS and PHP for the web client
- Apache and MapServer for the web server
2012 FOSS4G-CEE 2012: workshop about GRASS GIS
2009 Engineer Vito Bertè (TN): introduction course to GRASS GIS and QGIS
2010 Workshop on SOS e GeoDjango organized by the Istituto Scienze della Terra di Lugano during the XI Meeting of GRASS GIS Italian Users.
2008 Introductory course about GRASS GIS, QGIS, gvSIG, GRASS+R organized by University of Perugia during the IX Meeting of GRASS GIS Italian Users.
2007 Introductory course about PostgreSQL and PostGIS during Pgday.
I believe in free data sharing and software and I am involved in various projects related to Geographic information.
OpenStreetMap: “creates and provides free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them.” You can find more info about my activity on the project in Italian or in English, you can also see my edit. In 2012 I have been one of the coordinators of M(')appare Genova events
GRASS GIS: I started to contribute to GRASS GIS with the translation of the graphical user interface, in the last years I also wrote some modules for the GRASS GIS core
QGIS: I developed a plugin, OGR2Layers, which creates a web page with OpenLayers library and the vector loaded in the QGIS canvas
pyModis: it's a “Free and Open Source Python library to automatically download MODIS data from the NASA ftp site”
You can find all my ideas on my personal page at GitHub
