WeoGeo was established in 2006, and spun out of the Florida Environmental Research Institute, where the founders had worked together for nine years. It was founded to enable greater productivity in the geospatial industry by removing the vertical barriers to geo-content creation and sharing. In 2007, WeoGeo was a finalist in the Amazon Web Services StartUp Challenge[1]. WeoGeo released their Library Appliance in the July, 2008 concurrent with their Market service. They released their Library, a monthly, Software-as-a-Service version of their Appliance, in March, 2009. WeoGeo and Safe Software announced a partnership[2] in 2008 to bring FME Server to the cloud on Amazon Web Services.
