Geospatial Technology Trends 2013: Overview of the "Ripe Issues"

All predictions are wrong, some are useful. Predictions of geospatial technology trends have been the topic of recent discussions by the OGC Board of Directors and the OGC Planning Committee. One of my roles as OGC Chief Engineer is to offer a slate of "ripe issues" as a basis of these discussions. This blog provides an overview of the ripe issues developed in March 2013 and explains how they were developed. Future blogs will discuss each

Do not reinvent the wheel! A story from a non-smoker….

Thanks to a very kind invitation from Vasu Kilaru (EPA National Exposure Research Laboratory), I attended the recent Air Sensors 2013 workshop at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). My presentation was about the use of OGC standards for Big Data in the context of Sensors. I participated in a breakout session led by Sherri Hunt (EPA Star Program) that focused on challenges for the next 5 years.

Change at OGC

With my relocation from Australia to England now complete, I have been wondering what my first OGC blog should be about. The excellent discussion generated in the past couple of weeks by Chris Holmes’s comments (http://lists.opengeospatial.org/pipermail/requests/2013-February/000205....) on the OGC GeoPackage Standard seems a perfect way to start. And as you all get to know me you will learn I love a good robust discussion.

OWS-9 Demo a big attraction at Redlands TC Meeting

OWS-9 sponsorship totaled $2.65 million USD and attracted participant in-kind contributions worth more than $5 million.
