|Experience:||Markus joined mundialis in January 2016 as partner and general manager in order to make his dream about putting research into practice come true. He spent 15 years in academia in Germany and Italy at three different research institutions. For the past 8 years he was head of a well-known and leading “GIS and Remote Sensing” work group in Trento, Italy. Markus has a strong and long-term Open Source background. He is a founding-member of FOSSGIS.de (D-A-CH), GFOSS.it (Italy), and the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo.org). He is also author of several books and chapters on GRASS GIS and various papers on GIS applications. Being passionate about Open Source GIS, he became a GRASS GIS user in 1993 and a developer in 1997, and he has coordinated its development as the Project Steering Committee (PSC) chairman since then.
At mundialis he is working on innovative applications using data from the Copernicus program as well as from other sources that are offering incredible new possibilities for exciting remote sensing applications.

|Experience:||Till is partner and general manager of mundialis and took the same role more than 13 years ago for terrestris, where he worked a lot in setting up web based GIS applications. Till actively works with FOSS4G Software for more than a decade now and extends mundialis expertise through his experience, connections and knowledge. Till made his first efforts with GIS with early GRASS versions before he switched to being technical architect of Open Source WebGIS applications. With mundialis he feels somehow coming back to his roots working with the real raster stuff and connecting that to his core skills in web based applications. Till is Open Source enthusiast and with that, he was one of the founders of the German language FOSSGIS conference series and joined his first OSGeo Conference in Minneapolis in 2005 before it was even called FOSS4G. Till also put a lot of effort into building the local, regional and global community and helped form FOSSGIS e.V., the legal body of the German language OSGeo Local Chapter which he also co-chairs. Saying this, Till took the chair of FOSS4G 2016 taking place in his home city Bonn.|
