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.

Individuals from these member organizations make of the JPP Development Committee, which guides the development of OpenJUMP.
