Hackathon to test earth observation data processing capabilities

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) upcoming Earth Observation Exploitation Platform Hackathon 2018 will test the readiness of new, interoperable cloud-deployment architectures for processing of earth observation data. The hackathon aims to demonstrate that the Testbed-13 results, described in the consortium’s engineering reports, are fit for purpose. With the reports outlining several options, this hackathon will […]

Improving geospatial data visualisation in web maps

The Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Portrayal Concept Development Study (CDS) will assess the current state of portrayal of symbology for web-based mapping, ultimately releasing and presenting a report that will overview the findings and provide recommendations for further action. The information gained in the study will aid in developing a series of future pilots that […]

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 […]
