Quick Links

Here are several links for Bidders interested in quickly responding to the CFP:

Testbed-15 aims to explore new levels of interoperable geospatial data processing with a focus on data-centric security, federated clouds, service & application discovery, portrayal, machine learning, and delta updates. This initiative provides a business opportunity for stakeholders to mutually define, refine, and evolve service interfaces and protocols in the context of hands-on experience and feedback. The outcomes are expected to shape the future of geospatial software development and data publication. The Sponsors are supporting this vision with cost-sharing funds to partially offset the costs associated with development, engineering, and demonstration of these outcomes. This offers selected Participants a unique opportunity to recoup a portion of their initiative expenses.
