The Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) Pilot, sponsored by GeoConnections Canada, was an initiative of OGC's Interoperability Program to test the feasibility of using open, standards-based technology to improve the management and dissemination of geospatial data in Canada.
The Geo4NIEM Project was organized to address specific functional requirements to meet the following objectives:
This project is for the Concept Definition (CD) phase of a Spatial Data Quality Certification Initiative in OGC’s Interoperability Program. The main outcome of the CD Phase will be a Feasibility Report defining the Initiative. The Feasibility Report will be used to recruit additional sponsors for the execution phase of the Initiative. In particular the Feasibility Report will be ready for discussion at the INTERGEO conference in Munich, 9-13 October 2006.
