From June 17 to 21, Camptocamp helped organize and host the annual meeting of users and developers of the geOrchestra data infrastructure solution, to which we've been an active contributor for many years.

The comprehensive program enabled the sixty or so face-to-face participants, as well as those connected to the event via the live YouTube channel, not only to discover the latest news from a vibrant and passionate community, but also to take part in the subsequent code sprint.

Once again, we'd like to thank the Métropole Européenne de Lille for welcoming us to its premises for these 5 days.

We gave a number of presentations:

Highlights from the conference

The arrival of the "AI" topic made a strong impression, with demonstrations of a highly functional prototype, implemented by Camptocamp, which made it possible to ask geOrchestra questions in natural language and obtain relevant answers.

The power of the MapStore viewer, with its many recent evolutions concerning 3D and BIM in particular. For example, it is now possible to view and operate on GLTF and IFC georeferenced files in your browser.

The omnipresence of the geonetwork-ui library and its "first class" applications, datahub and soon geonetwork-editor. While the development of the "datahub" data search application was largely funded by the geOrchestra community (Région Hauts-de-France, Métropole Européenne de Lille), it was conceived as a free, platform-independent digital commons. It is now used by IGN through its service, by Swisstopo on its geoportal, and by the Prodige community. This community is structured independently of geOrchestra, and Olivia Guyot of Camptocamp has laid the foundations for an operating charter guaranteeing the harmonious evolution of the library, by bringing together all stakeholders.

Métropole Européenne de Lille's decision to use geOrchestra and geonetwork-ui to build its OpenData portal on the basis of free and sovereign components, as opposed to the privatized and captive choice of OpenDataSoft SaaS. This choice is all the more judicious when it allows us to achieve high standards in terms of data governance and compatibility with the objectives of the INSPIRE directive, as we will explain at the next GeoDataDays.

geOrchestra's growing international presence means that the twelfth edition of the event will include a day dedicated to exchanges with the community in English. The implementation of the incubation process atOSGeo, started during the code sprint, is a profound marker of this.

We look forward to seeing you at the next geOcom in 2025, and we invite you to reserve your place to take part in the data infrastructure revolution!
