Business Seminar

Best practice makes perfect with Open Geospatial Standards


Thursday 25th January 2007, 0930-1530


British Geological Survey Offices, Nottingham, UK

 

Effective use of geographical data underpins many critical business and governmental decisions and strategies - in marketing, distribution, sales, planning, environmental protection, defence, security, service provision or any one of a dozen other areas of business, local and central government.

All too often business decisions and support systems are based upon what is perceived to be the most cost effective application of geographic information and processing systems. Often they are made with cursory thought towards the reduction of technology life cycle costs and open spatial standards.

A few questions to consider.

  1. How well you make use of geospatial information (GI) to enable your operations? This can make the difference between profit and loss, between effective provision of public services and failing services.
  2. How will you adapt your current products and services to exploit new capabilities and how will you protect today's investments from tomorrow's disruptive technologies?

 

This Seminar was aimed at all decision makers and managers who have to face these challenges in the coming months and years, it helped describe how to achieve interoperability across technologies, how to future-proof your investments and present best-practise for optimal results.

The 2010 O'Reilly Where 2.0 Conference - Put Location Awareness to Work

The first Web 2.0 innovations helped us make new connections on a global scale. The rise of location-aware tools, linked with the growing ubiquity of real-time, social, and mobile, is swinging the pendulum back to the human and local scale.

Raj Singh will be presenting "Shedding Light on Climate Change ".

COM.Geo 2011: 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application

Start: 
Monday, 2011-05-23
End: 
Wednesday, 2011-05-25
Details: 

The explosion of computing driven location based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies,  such as cloud computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications.

Innovative research and application technologies are the brightest spotlights at COM.Geo conference. COM.Geo 2011 is the 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application (R&A) with focuses on the latest computing technologies for multidisciplinary research and development that enables the exploration in geospatial areas. COM.Geo Conference is an exclusive event that connects researchers, developers, scientists, and application users from academia, government, and industry in both computing and geospatial fields. It builds the bridges between research and applications through computing and geospatial areas.

2nd workshop on the use of OGC standards in meteorology

Start: 
Monday, 2009-11-23
End: 
Wednesday, 2009-11-25
Details: 
The aim of this workshop, jointly organised by ECMWF, the UK Met Office and Meteo- France, is to review the use of OGC standards in geo-sciences in Europe and worldwide, to promote collaboration between meteorological services in order to define a set of common standards that will enhance interoperability.

Eye on Earth

Start: 
Monday, 2011-12-12
End: 
Thursday, 2011-12-15
Details: 

The Eye on Earth Summit will enable global leaders, innovators and decision-makers to focus on an issue critical to the wise decision-making upon which our planet’s future depends: how to ensure effective access to the world's expanding pool of environmental and societal data by all of those who need it.

Facilitated by the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) and hosted by Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Eye on Earth Summit will strengthen existing efforts and inspire a search for unified, global solutions to the issues that preclude access to data.

Workshop on OGC Sensor Web Enablement Technologies for SmartCities

Start: 
Monday, 2012-11-12
End: 
Tuesday, 2012-11-13
Details: 

Sensors are becoming a fundamental technology for "Smart City" management. Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards will be an important foundation driving the development of future urban applications based on sesnsor technology by making sensors and sensor data discoverable, accessible, useable and shareable. Standards make it possible to protect investments, reduce likelihood of dead-end technologies and ensure scalability. All these aspects have to be taken into account in SmartCity design and implementation.

The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to review the SWE standards, presenting results and experience on real implementataions, and to practice with the most advanced software to acquire new skills in this field.

This workshop is in the framework of the SmartCity Expo - World Congress 2012, Barcelona, November 12-13, 2012.
