Australia & New Zealand Forum

The Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) Forum provides a coordination and communication environment for Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) members in the ANZ region. The Forum enables opportunities for collaboration and partnership and helps members participate in the OGC Interoperability Program and Standards Program. Through coordinated regional activities, the ANZ Forum addresses the OGC outreach and education needs of industry, government, academic and research organizations and works to identify interoperability requirements and communicate these into the OGC standards and test bed process.

The Forum helps organizations understand the tangible benefits of implementing geospatial interoperability standards, identify relevant standards, and plan for success in realizing these benefits through use of OGC compliant products.
