OGC Training at MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014

Wednesday, 2014-05-07
Friday, 2014-05-09

We invite you to register for a 1 day OGC training course to be held May 8, 2014 during the MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014 conference. The training will be in Portuguese and will be led by Luis Bermudez, director of the OGC Compliance Program. Attendees successfully completing the training will receive a certificate from OGC and MundoGeo and either one free membership for their employer or a discount coupon**.

This is an important training session because OGC standards have become increasingly important in a world where location and other types of geographic information are becoming integral parts of the information infrastructure. OGC is the main international organization responsible for open geospatial standards, and these standards make it possible for geospatial data and geoprocessing instructions to be communicated between platforms, systems and applications. Receiving training in OGC standards is important for both software developers and information system managers.

The MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014 Conference and Trade Fair will be held at the Fri Caneca Convention Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

GeoTec Event 2010 is Canada's premier geospatial technology conference. Now in its 24th year, the 2010 event continues the tradition of offering an exceptional program focusing on the latest trends in technology and applications.

GeoTec caters to a wide audience of business experts, senior academics and technology specialists. We consistently develop a program that addresses the concerns of all users of GIS, imagery and geospatial data.

In addition, we identify respected speakers to present high-quality, timely papers of specific interest to residents within and around the Toronto region; we offer a vibrant, informative trade show, showcasing software, hardware and services; and we offer an ideal forum for networking and exchanging ideas.

GeoTec includes general sessions covering a variety of topics, and, in addition to the regular program, we include two keynote presentations from high-profile, knowledgeable members of the community. Also, we offer two panel discussions-one comprised of members of GeoWorld magazine's editorial advisory board, and another roundtable discussion with senior executives who address a specific topic currently relevant in the geospatial technology industry. Next year, our roundtable panel will address the topic of data: their accuracy, availability and dissemination process.
