OGC invites you to the Arctic Spatial Data Pilot demonstra

Feb 23, 2017 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) invites members and the public to attend the OGC Arctic Spatial Data Pilot demonstration online or in-person on the 15th March 2017 at the USGS in Reston, Virginia.

The OGC Arctic Spatial Data Pilot ( Arctic SDP) was initiated to demonstrate the diversity, richness, and value of providing geospatial data using international standards in support of spatial data infrastructures. It will show how international standards help stakeholders to gain new perspectives into social, economic, and environmental issues by providing an online network of resources that improves the sharing, use, and integration of information tied to geographic locations in North America, the Arctic, and around the world.

Organized by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), the Pilot is sponsored by US Geological Survey and Natural Resources Canada. The Pilot supports US and Canada domestic priorities around open standards and interoperability. The Pilot supports the strategic goals of the Arctic Spatial Data Infrastructure (Arctic SDI), a voluntary, multilateral cooperation between the 8 Arctic Countries' National Mapping Agencies (including USGS and NRCan).

The Arctic SDP, an 18 month study, was initiated to demonstrate the diversity, richness and value of providing geospatial data using international standards in support of spatial data exchange. It will show how they help stakeholders to gain new perspectives into social, economic, and environmental issues by providing an online network of resources that improves the sharing, use, and integration of information tied to geographic locations in North America, the Arctic, and around the world.

Taking the results from the study into account, the demonstration will further present the results from a practical implementation study executed in 2016/17, where 12 OGC member organizations worked together to create case studies, implementations, reports, and videos that demonstrate the value of an SDI for the Arctic and help form a holistic view of an unique environment. Please review the agenda and register online.

About the OGC Innovation Program

The OGC Innovation Program provides global, hands-on, collaborative prototyping for rapid development and delivery of proven candidate specifications to the OGC Standards Program, where these candidates can then be considered for further action. In Innovation Program initiatives, participants team together to solve specific geo-processing interoperability problems posed by the initiative’s Sponsors. These initiatives include testbeds, pilot projects, interoperability experiments, and interoperability support services – all designed to encourage rapid development, testing, validation and adoption of open, consensus-based standards. More information on the The OGC Innovation Program, including its policies and procedures, can be found at http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/policies/ippp.

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 525 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. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
