Dear geospatial technology user:
This is the final reminder for the Business Benefits of Using OGC Standards Survey. We thank those of you who have responded to the survey. The information we have collected will help us understand OGC standards effectiveness and improve OGC programs.
Wayland, MA, 18 January 2010.On December 8 in Mountain View, California, the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) held a special session of the OGC 3DIM (3D Information Management) Domain Working Group to bring together professionals representing standards development organizations and activities working on encoding standards for indoor location and routing, floor plans, and other built environment information. Such standards are needed for applications such as emergency management (EM), outdoor/indoor navigation, and augmented reality.
