OGC Announces 3D Fusion Summit

WAYLAND, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 7, 2009 The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) invites participation in an OGC 3D Fusion Summit to be held June 23, 2009 at the Stata Center at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The OGC's 3-D Information Management Domain Working Group (3DIM WG) is becoming an important forum activity for discussing and promoting the convergence of 3-D visualization, CAD-GIS integration, and Building Information Modeling (BIM). This effort serves all the stakeholder groups involved with capital facility projects throughout their lifecycle. In addition, the same standards support scene visualization and decision support systems in defense, intelligence and emergency management.

"We are developing the standards and best practices that will enable the fusion of robust information and topological models with quality 3D graphics across multiple vendors’ products," explained Tim Case, Chair of 3DIM WG. “Our goal is to make AEC technologies such as CAD and BIM, geospatial systems, 3D visualization, and urban simulation work together smoothly and streamline operations throughout the lifecycle of a building or capital project.”

“The OGC has Memoranda of Understanding with the National Institute for Building Sciences (NIBS), IAI International, the building Smart alliance and other organizations to cooperate in areas of interest for the 3DIM WG,” said Mark Reichardt, the OGC’s president and CEO. “We are holding this summit to give stakeholders an opportunity to see how they can benefit from participating in the broad effort to build this open framework.”

The OGC’s June 2009 Technical Committee meeting week also includes a Sensor Web Enablement Summit ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/event/090624swe) and a Geospatial Rights Management Summit ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/event/090622georm).

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 380 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OpenGIS Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
