The OGC on behalf of its sponsors UK-DSTL, Ordnance Survey, Geonovum, and ESA invites you to join us in London for the 1st European OGC Testbed & IP Day. The goal of this workshop is to discuss the results from Testbed-13 and their general implication for OGC standardization work with particular emphasis on European needs. The workshop will allow time for technical discussions on selected topics. Each topic discussion will be lead by an expert Testbed-13 participant. These discussions allow to address specific technical questions, strategic decisions, or follow-up activities in the Standards Working groups. The following four topics have been selected:

  • 2D & 3D Vector Tiles

  • Denied, Degraded, Intermittent, or Limited Bandwidth (DDIL)

  • Cloud Computing Environment for Earth Observation Data

  • Topic 4

Though participation is free of charge, it is essential that you register via eventbrite if you would like to attend - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ogc-testbed-13-innovation-program-day-tickets-43846638476
