Google Open Source – Location & Maps developers

Hello, geospatial open source fans – Google Open Source is here!

What is Google Open Source?

Google Open Source is a new resource that provides code repository from Google dedicated to open source community. This contains Google’s programs, organizations they support, and a comprehensive list of open source projects they’ve released.

At this point of time, there are around 2000+ open source projects that are available from opensource.google.com along with Google’s internal open source documentation, an official blog and information on its outreach activities and affiliations.
