The Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Alberta
TECTERRA, along with the OGC
Business today is being driven by geospatial data: everything has a position and it is critical to know where things are and how they connect. However, a myriad of proprietary data formats make sharing geospatial data a painful process, even within the same company!
TECTERRA, along with the OGC, is proud to host the Opening Doors, Connecting Business event. This event will feature talks by companies that have implemented Open Geospatial Standards in their business with a focus on how it improved their operations, client communication, and ultimately their profitability.
In today's ever changing business environment, you need to ensure you are part of the conversations that will change the way your industry operates and this event is a perfect opportunity to participate!
Join us on November 5, 2013 at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Alberta to learn about the latest in geospatial standards and network with industry professionals!

What role will standards play in future ICT, environmental and research programs of the European Commission? And how is the OGC participating in this process? What are the experiences and results of some of the projects funded by the European Commission. And what might be the benefits in using standards while participating in such a project? On Wednesday 30 September 2009 you will have a chance to get first hand answers to such questions at the “EU funded Projects and the OGC: Standards, Benefits and Implementations“ OGC Interoperability Day in Darmstadt, Germany. 09:30 - 10:00 Coffee & Registration 10:00 - 10:15 Welcome 10:15 - 10:45 Vojko Bratina (European Commission) on future funding projects of the EC (tbc) 10:45 - 11:15 The role of OGC-E in European Projects: how, why, targets (Athina Trakas) 11:15 - 11:45 ESDIN (Lassi Letho, FGI) 11:45 - 12:15 EuroGEOSS (Francis Bertrand, BRGM) 12:15 - 13:30 Lunch and informal discussion 13:30 - 14:25 Humboldt (i) Overview & the Open Source Project (Astrid Fichtinger) (ii) Catalogue Service, Web Processing Service (Jan Jesek) (iii) formal description of OGC Services (Daniel Fitzner) 14:25 - 15:15 SANY - Sensors Anywhere (i) Integration of Sensors and Models based upon OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards (Désirée Hilbring) (ii) Challenges of using Open Standards in Geo Hazard monitoring Projects (Nicolas Kolodkine) (iii) Data Fusion in SANY : Adding value to geospatial data (Stuart Middleton) 15:15 - 15:45 Coffee break 15:45 - 16:45 GIGAS (Eva Klien) 16:45 - 17:00 WrapUp

As part of the OGC Technical Committee meeting, a special 2013 OGC Asia Forum Summit will be held at IIT Bombay, India on December 3rd, 2013.
Two major focuses of this special Summit will be “Values of standards for research, education, and implementation” and “Uses of OGC standards in practical community settings”. Many distinguished speakers from the Asia region will share their experiences and practices in geoinformatics interoperability. Special guest speakers from the OGC India Forum and the OGC ANZ Forum have been invited. Register for the Forum here.
The Technical Committee meeting will be immediately preceded by the annual Spatial Data Infrastructure conference, NSDI 2013, organized by the India government on Nov 29th and 30th. One-day tutorials on OGC standards will be held on Dec 1st. We invite you to join us in this unique series of events.

Starts at 10h00 am on Oct 21 and ends no later than 16h30 on Oct 22
There is no registration fee, however, participants are responsible for their own transport & hotel costs. The meeting is open to both OGC and non-OGC members.
The OGC Aviation DWG will be meeting at the Eurocontrol HQ on Oct 21 and 22 to
-- Advance the development of a draft metadata profile for AIXM 5.1
-- Advance the development of a GML profile for Aviation
-- Review results of Aviation-related activities within OGC (OWS-6, OWS-7, FAA SAA Dissemination Pilot)
-- Review/plan upcoming DWG tasks and follow-up activities
The meeting will be a hands-on technical meeting to produce updated drafts of the metadata and GML profiles.

To effectively manage all of the geospatial and non-geospatial information associated with urban infrastructure, cities today need a 3D City Geospatial Information System (GIS). Working at the City LevelNeal Niemiec, GISP, Infrastructure Technical Specialist, Autodesk One of the first commercial applications to implement CityGML, Autodesk LandXplorer products provide a system for the management, collaboration and visualization of 3D digital cities, infrastructure and land development models.

The closest international airport is Logan International Airport (BOS)
Parking in Cambridge and Boston can be expensive and hard to find (Marriott Parking is $22 per day for self-park). Whenever possible, park your car at the hotel, and use public transportation to get to the MIT campus. If you must drive to the campus, on- and off-street parking is available for a fee, but most public parking is not very close to the center of the MIT campus
Public Transportation (the MBTA, known as "the T")
The closest subway station to campus is Kendall Square on the Red Line, you may also want to consider going to Central Square (also on the Red Line) or taking the #1 or CT1 bus across the Charles River from Back Bay, depending on where you are coming from and your destination on campus.
Public transportation fares and schedules may be found at the MBTA website. If you are coming to MIT for an extended visit, you may want to consider buying a stored value CharlieCard or an unlimited use weekly or monthly pass.
