Schedule of Meetings:
The tentative agenda is now posted. Please check back often as updates will be made frequently.
The OGC 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner will be held on 3 December at the HAPPO-EN. There will be charter bus service between the meeting facilities and the Dinner.
During the term of Tokyo TC on December 2014, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC(R)) will conduct an experimental demonstration for OGC(R) Moving Features Candidate Standard.
The demonstration consists of two experiments. One experiment is an indoor-location experiment, and the other is an outdoor-location experiment.
For the indoor-location experiment, Business Microscope(R)* system is used to measure people's activities.
Tokyo TC attendees who have agreed their participation to the experiment will wear a tag with infrared transceivers and accelerometers. Beacons are set up in meeting rooms in order to record attendees' indoor locations by communicating with tags. The histories of locations will be converted to OGC(R) Moving Features encoding.
For the outdoor-location experiment, a smart card which is available for purchase public-transportation (trains, subways and buses) fare will be distributed to attendees of Tokyo TC. The fare payment is immediately finished by touching the card to a card reader. The history of the fare payments at stations are recorded in the card.
If attendees agree upon their experiment participation, station names that they got on and off will be converted to coordinate data and the movement trajectory is visualized as a real-time movie after spatial interpolation along with a railway network.
