For many years now a small number
of dedicated organisations in the Australia and New Zealand region have worked tirelessly
to improve our data sharing through the use of OGC standards. The OGC is well
known throughout the region and the number of implementations of the standards
is increasing, but only a handful of organizations have contributed to the
standards creation process working directly with the OGC. There is now an
opportunity for a larger number of our region’s geospatial players to participate
via the OGC Australia and New Zealand Forum.
