OGC’s Charlotte TC Meeting: as it was, not just as it seemed*

Braving heavy snowfall, and overcoming subsequent flight delays, more than 140 key standards leaders from industry, academia, and government attended last week’s Technical Committee (TC) Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. The meeting was hosted by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). This TC Meeting also featured an Energy Summit, a special IndoorGML-hosted open session, a wrap-up of the Environmental Linked Features Interoperability Experiment (ELFIE), and more.

OWS-9 Demo a big attraction at Redlands TC Meeting

We had extremely strong attendance at the January 2013 OGC Technical Committee Meeting hosted by Esri in Redlands, CA. This was due in no small part to interest in the OGC Web Services Phase 9 (OWS-9) Testbed Demonstration and Exhibition. We’ve never had an OGC interoperability initiative that had so many sponsors, so much funding and such a rich harvest of technology components. OWS-9 sponsorship totaled $2.65 million USD and attracted participant in-kind contributions worth more than $5 million.
