exactEarth Joins the OGC

Cambridge, ON – July 6, 2012–: exactEarth Ltd., a leading provider of global maritime vessel data, is pleased to announce its acceptance as a member of the OGC (The Open Geospatial Consortium). As exactEarth accelerates its technological advancements in the delivery of its Satellite AIS (S-AIS) data, membership in the OGC is an important step towards developing new geospatial solutions to meet a growing and diverse customer need.

exactEarth recognize that interoperability can be a bottleneck, hampering the integration of new data sources, such as S-AIS, and slowing acceptance and market expansion. Open standards, championed in the geospatial arena by the OGC, break down these barriers and exactEarth are keen to be actively involved in this area to shape the future direction of geospatial data distribution to ensure its customer needs and market requirements are catered for.

“We are seeing a rapid expansion in the use of Satellite AIS data” said Graham Stickler, Senior Director of Global Marketing at exactEarth and a previous OGC Working Group Chair. “As we explore new ways to provide these data to our customers it is clear that interoperability is a key requirement. We believe being involved in the OGC will help us form new partnerships and open new lines of communication with our customers fostering even greater use of our data. We look forward to being an active force in helping to define future standards and methods for use in the Maritime Industry in particular”.
