Testbed aims for new levels of geo-interoperability

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites interested organisations to respond to the call for participation for its Testbed-15 Innovation Initiative. Testbed-15 aims to explore new levels of interoperable geospatial data processing with a focus on data-centric security, federated clouds, service and application discovery, portrayal, machine learning, and delta updates. OGC Testbeds are part of OGC’s […]

Takeaways from satellite interoperability workshop

During August more than 100 leaders from the geospatial industry, government, and NGOs gathered at the USGS to discuss one of the biggest questions facing the earth observation field: is the data from different satellites “interoperable,” or exchangeable, with one another? How much effort are we spending trying to make them appear interoperable? How much […]

Analytical-physical modelling and interoperability propel BIM

The increasing adoption of BIM as the method of choice for conceptual and detailed architectural design has resulted in more elaborate and complex designs than ever before. With this complexity, there is a need for more effective and automated BIM to structural analysis interoperability. As BIM becomes pervasive in all types of engineering projects, structural […]

Utilising geo-information in times of crises

The Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Disasters Interoperability Concept Development Study (CDS) will assess the state of data and product exchange technologies as used in disaster planning, response, and recovery. The study will aid in developing a series of future pilots to advance the state of spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) that support disaster risk reduction globally. […]

Automating data flow between GIS and BIM

Phase 2 of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Future City Pilot aims to improve the automation of the flow of data between geospatial systems (GIS) and building information models (BIM) systems, as well as address a number of related interoperability challenges. The OGC is seeking interested sponsors to define the challenges for Phase 2 of […]
