We had extremely strong attendance at the January 2013 OGC Technical Committee Meeting hosted by Esri in Redlands, CA. This was due in no small part to interest in the OGC Web Services Phase 9 (OWS-9) Testbed Demonstration and Exhibition. We’ve never had an OGC interoperability initiative that had so many sponsors, so much funding and such a rich harvest of technology components. OWS-9 sponsorship totaled $2.65 million USD and attracted participant in-kind contributions worth more than $5 million.

Cloudant is pleased to announce that we have joined the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The OGC serves as forum to promote collaboration and development of geospatial standards for geospatial interoperability.
Our program of annual testbeds is headed into its tenth year! Time flies when you're having fun!

"CGDI in Action" describes, in plain language, the infrastructure developed by GeoConnections, a program led by Natural Resources Canada.
May 24-25, 2012: An old cloister in the historical heart of Ghent (Belgium) formed the décor of the first workshop on the development of an international standard for 4D archaeological data. The workshop was organized by the Department of Geography of Ghent University in collaboration with the CReSTIC of the University of Reims. The goal of the workshop was to reflect on and discuss the possibility of developing a comprehensive international standard which would facilitate the exchange and

This is a special message from Wikitude CTO Martin Lechner concerning the recent advancements in the standardization of augmented reality specifications.
In recent weeks I have been travelling a lot and today I want to share with you some of the experiences I had during my visit to the Croatian National SDI Conference in Zagreb and the final symposium of the EU funded OBSERVE project – both with a focus on Eastern Europe and the Balkan countries.
OGC, EuroSDR and Geonovum have organised a workshop on CityGML for national mapping, which will be held 21/22 January 2013 at IGN in Paris. The aim of the workshop is to present implementations of the OGC CityGML Encoding Standard, an open data model and XML-based format for the storage and exchange of virtual 3D city models. Workshop participants will also explore what is needed to make the standard further fit for 3D implementation covering large areas and various application domains.
