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 is proud to partner with OGC to present a four part webinar series from August to November:
- 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
The CEO, Dr. Nadine Alameh, and her leadership team will be online for the first session sharing how OGC is evolving to better serve an increasingly connected world where location has become ubiquitous and while our problems have become more complex.
The OGC team will share highlights of OGC's activities as an international standards organization for geospatial information, as a hub for thought leadership and innovation, and as a neutral forum for communities to tackle our ever increasing interoperability challenges.
The team will take questions from the audience. Always had a query but never had the chance to ask? Now is your chance!
