eCPD - Modernising the Location standards baseline - OGC APIs
Date & Time

This is a recording of a webinar held live on Friday 2 October 2020
OGC is a worldwide community committed to improving access to geospatial (location) information. They connect people, communities, and technology to solve global challenges and address everyday needs. The organisation represents over 500 businesses, government agencies, research organizations, and universities united with a desire to make location information FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.
The OGC community creates free, publicly available geospatial standards that enable new technologies. OGC also manages an agile and collaborative research & development process - the OGC Innovation Program - that anticipates and solves real-world geospatial challenges experienced by their members.
SSSI was proud to partner with OGC to present a four part webinar series in 2020:
- Part 1 - Meet the OGC Leadership team
- Part 2: The OGC Geospatial Technology Trends - Guiding the future of Location
- Part 3: Modernizing the Location standards baseline - OGC APIs
- Part 4: Standards and Interoperability: business value and impact stories
In this session, OGC's head of standards, Scott Simmons, shared how OGC is evolving its standards baseline for accessing geospatial/location information via the OGC APIs. The OGC API family of standards is being developed to make it easy to provide geospatial data to the web. They build on the OGC Web Service standards (WMS, WFS, WCS, WPS, etc) but define resource-centric APIs that take advantage of modern web development practices.
If you have an application or a use case that requires integration of geospatial/location information, this is your opportunity to learn about the latest, simplest and most interoperable way to do that!
