ABSTRACT

In recent years Open Source GIS software had been introduced in various areas, as its interest and application continue to increase worldwide. In the same token, the interest and application of Open Source GIS software also keep expanding in diverse fields not only in the world and but also in Korea. However, in Korea, there are only a few companies related to Open Source GIS software among the companies that run geospatial information related business. In addition, it is very weak in the development of business model which applies Open Source to actual fields in Korea. In this study we are going to investigate what kinds of business models are feasible in geospatial information related business in Korea and then to analyze how domestic GIS software companies have applied the Open Source to their business, after performing the preceding researches of business model for Open Source software. We think that this study is very valuable not only to vitalize the ecosystem of Open Source GIS software industry in Korea, but also to initiate new businesses of domestic GIS software companies.
