MapFish initial discussions on how to provide an easy-to-use Web 2.0 development framework started among users at the FOSS4G 2006 in Lausanne, Switzerland. The MapFish framework, used by numerous cartography portals worldwide, allows to easily build customized Web-SIG applications. From the beginning, the community of users and developers has grown exponentially around the MapFish project. The required technical developments of the project have also led to the improvement and extension of several fundamental libraries used by the framework.
Camptocamp would like to thank the steering committee for giving MapFish the OSGeo label and the community for its commitment in the project. We extend our special thanks to Gary Sherman for being our mentor throughout the incubation process.
