The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Association of Geographic Information (AGI) have joined forces to offer you the chance to learn more about open standards and interoperability. Hosted at the Met Office in Exeter on 22nd June 2012, following the OGC Technical Committee meetings earlier that week, the day will be of interest to everyone in the geocommunity, especially those who want to know more about what Open Government and international geospatial standards can offer them and their organisation.If you are interested in standards policy and the EC INSPIRE Directive, or the recent UK Government consultation on Open Standards, there will be representation from Central Government, Ordnance Survey Great Britain and the Met Office, amongst others. If you are more technically minded there will be a hands-on workshop where you’ll get the chance to try out OGC compliant web services and data feeds in open source software. Remember to bring your laptop!More details to be confirmed in the coming weeks. There are exhibitor and sponsor opportunities available for this event.
