AGI UK Open Standards Forum for Geographic Information
AGI Workshop: UK Open Standards Forum for Geographic Information
• Do you or your organisation use standards for geographic information?
• Are you aware what standards exist?
• Are you sure of how and when to apply standards?
• Do you need to know more?
• Are you confused by all the standards that exist?
• Have you identified gaps in standards?
If the answer to any of the above is “Yes” then here is a chance to be in at the beginning of the creation of a forum to enable the GI community to share information, promote the use of the standards, influence their development, etc…
