Sponsors, Acknowledgements and Credits

There are too many people who have helped since GDAL/OGR was launched in late 1998 for me to thank them all. I have received moral support, financial support, code contributions, sample datasets, and bug reports from literally hundreds of people. However, below I would like to single out a few people and organizations who have supported GDAL over the years. Forgive me for all those I left out.
