What is the JUMP Pilot Project? The JUMP Pilot Project, or JPP, is an organization dedicated to the development of software solutions based on the open source GIS program JUMP. One of its main functions is to coordinate and encourage the cooperative development of technologies based on, or centered on OpenJUMP. It provides developers from aroung the world an opportunity to work together and avoid duplicated efforts. You can find information about the development of JUMP and related technologies on this web site. The main software platform being currently coordinated by the JPP is OpenJUMP. This is a version of the original JUMP being developed and maintained by a group of volunteer developers from aroung the globe.
The JUMP Pilot Project is supported by a number of private for-profit, and non-profit organizations. Each one of these organization willingly participates in the coordinated development of technologies based on the JUMP GIS Platform. Individuals from these member organizations make of the JPP Development Committee, which guides the development of OpenJUMP.
Volunteers Around the World: One of the things that makes the JPP and OpenJUMP unique is its global development community. Although orginally developed in Canada, OpenJUMP is now used around the world. Memebers of the development committee come from countries across North America, Europe, and Asia. There are several private companies and universities developing with OpenJUMP and the original JUMP code base.
