It is with great pleasure that on behalf of the PSC and the whole QGIS community I’d like to extend the most heartfelt congratulations to Anita for receiving the Sol Katz Award.
Anita has been a pillar of the QGIS community since she joined her first hackfest in Vienna in 2009. Since then she has been pushing QGIS’ boundaries and has helped thousands of people to do so through all her publications, ideas and answers on her blog, stackexchange, on the QGIS documentation and in the 7(!) books she co-authored on QGIS. Anita is also the author of the hugely popular TimeManager QGIS plugin that was the precursor of the temporal manager added in QGIS 3.14.
Since 2013 Anita has been an irreplaceable member of the PSC. Dedicated, precise, and foremost always ready to lend a helping hand, Anita is a unique example of a passionate Open Source advocate.
Thanks for all you do Anita and congratulations, nobody deserved the Sol Katz award more than you!
The Sol Katz Award for Geospatial Free and Open Source Software (GFOSS) is awarded annually by OSGeo to individuals who have demonstrated leadership in the GFOSS community. Recipients of the award will have contributed significantly through their activities to advance open source ideals in the geospatial realm. The hope is that the award will both acknowledge the work of community members, and pay tribute to one of its founders, for years to come.
