OGC’s 95th Technical Committee/Planning Committee Meetings to be held 1-5 June in Boulder, CO

14 May 2015 – The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) invites attendance at the  June 2015 OGC Technical Committee Meeting be held at UCAR/NCAR Center Green in Boulder, Colorado 1 June to 5 June, 2015. In addition to a rich agenda of Working Group meetings and special events, there will be a dinner reception and  Gardels Award announcement on Wednesday evening at the NCAR/UCAR Mesa Laboratory. 

The week’s special events include the final OGC Testbed 11 Demonstration plus: a Point Cloud Ad Hoc meeting, a Geospatial/BIM/Indoor Location Workshop (“GIS BIM” in the  TC agenda), a Water Data Summit, and a GeoSemantics Summit. 

OGC  Domain Working Groups and  Standards Working Groups will meet to discuss exciting work in areas such as Agriculture (see the recently announced Soil Data Interoperability Experiment), GeoSemantics, sensor integration (see recently announced  IMIS IoT Pilot Project), and hydrological informatics (see OGC WaterML2.0 part 2 - Ratings Gaugings & Sections Standard). 

Those seeking to attend special events (except the GeoSemantics summit) must register for the OGC Technical Committee Meeting and pay the registration fee. Then they must also register for each of the special events they want to attend, so that we know how many attendees to accommodate. There is, however, no additional fee for any of the special events. The GeoSemantics: Standards Intersect Ontologies Summit requires special event registration, but a Technical Committee Meeting registration is not required and there is no fee for attending this Summit. (Registration for this or any of the other special events does not authorize attendance at other Technical Committee sessions.) 

For agenda, details and registration, see the  June 2015 OGC TC/PC meetings page. 

The OGC is an international geospatial standards consortium of more than 500 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available 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/contact.
