OGC Supports European Data Modelling Workshop

18 November 2014-- The Open Geospatial Consortium joins EUROSDR, AGILE, JRC and ELF in presenting an important technical workshop focused on the geospatial elements of data models.The workshop will be held from 28 January(noon) to 30 January (noon) at the Danish Geodata Agency, Copenhagen, Denmark.

National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies and other spatial data infrastructure (SDI) content providers are facing increasing demand for making well documented data in known data models available as standardised web-services. National e-government initiatives require spatial data to be modelled seamlessly with non-spatial data. INSPIRE puts requirements on GML application schemas and web service standards, and the European Location Framework (ELF) project brings the national SDIs together in a Pan-European context.

Data modelling is a mature discipline, but how best to handle a number of specific modelling issues such as semantic mediation for cross community collaboration is challenging. The potential benefits of solving such issues for automating implementation of data distribution and sharing environments is obvious. However, many considerations need to be taken into account when defining and agreeing to the data model. In addition, automating the process of implementing instances database schemas and web-services based on UML data models adds an extra level of complexity.

The workshop aims at identifying challenges in order to identify relevant research topics and encourage development of best practice recommendations.

Call for abstracts

Participants in this workshop are invited to give a presentation on one or more of the topics described on the  workshop web page. 300-500 word abstracts can be sent to j.e.stoter [at]  tudelft.nl, by 12 noon, 12th of December 2014. The abstracts will be used to organize the programme. Improved versions or full papers will not be requested for the workshop.

About the workshop sponsors

EuroSDR is a not-for-profit organisation linking National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies with Research Institutes and Universities in Europe for the purpose of applied research in spatial data provision, management and delivery.

The Association of Geographic Information Laboratories for Europe (AGILE) was established in 1998 to promote academic teaching and research on GIS at the European level and to ensure the continuation of the networking activities that have emerged as a result of the EGIS Conferences and the European Science Foundation GISDATA Scientific Programmes.

The  Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's in-house science service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.

The 3-year  ELF Project is supported by a consortium of 30 partners across Europe, whose work is co-funded by the European Commission. The goal of the ELF project is to deliver the European Location Framework (ELF) required to provide up-to-date, authoritative, interoperable, cross-border, reference geo-information for use by the European public and private sectors.

The  Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 495 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at  http://www.opengeospatial.org/.
