Geospatial Standards Move Toward Implementation and Interoperability

Release Date: 
1999-04-30
Content: 
Information technology standards are often book-sized documents of rather arcane technical information and directives. They are dry and brittle. Yet, the best information technology standards directly affect our daily lives, change the way we do business, and, indeed, change the world. This is the case with emerging geomatics and geographic information standards. The fact is that many daily tasks and activities can and will be made easier, more pleasant, and more professional using standards that are emerging from ISO/TC211, and being implemented by the members of the Open GIS Consortium.
