Markus Neteler received his degree in Physical Geography and Landscape Ecology from the University of Hanover, Germany, in 1999 where he worked as a researcher and teaching assistant for two years.


From 2001-2007, he was a researcher at Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) (formerly ITC-irst), Trento, Italy.[citation needed] In the period 2005-2007, while preserving the work of FBK researcher, he worked as the same figure for the Centro di Ecologia Alpina of Trento (Italy).[citation needed] From 2008 to 2016, he worked at the Edmund Mach Foundation (FEM) - San Michele all'Adige (Trento, Italy), as the coordinator of the GIS and Remote Sensing unit.[1] In 2016 he moved to Bonn, Germany, where he co-founded the Mundialis company.

His main interests are remote sensing for environmental risk assessment and Free Software GIS development, especially GRASS GIS (of which he is the coordinator since 1999).

He co-authored two books on the use of the free and open source software GRASS GIS[2] and several scientific papers on GIS.[3][4][5][6][7] [8][9]

He is a founding member of the GRASS Anwender-Vereinigung e.V.[10] (Germany), the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo, USA) and[11] the Italian association for geospatial free and open source software. In September 2006, he was honored with the Sol Katz award for Geospatial Free and Open Source Software (GFOSS) for his commitment to the GRASS project coordination. In 2010 he received his PhD in Natural Sciences (Dr. rer. nat.) in Physical Geography.
