Sensor Design Considerations for UAS Platforms: A User's Perspective - GeoTech 2015

Start: 
Wednesday, 2015-09-23
End: 
Thursday, 2015-09-24
Details: 

Interest in UAS has exploded over the past three years. With the assimilation of UAS into the commercial sector, platform and payload manufacturers are hastily scoping out the current and future requirements for sensors suitable for remote sensing and geospatial data creation. To facilitate these developments, the Potomac Region is bringing together the UAS platform and payload community with consumers of data generated using UAS systems for remote sensing at its annual GeoTech 2015 event.

ASPRS is uniquely positioned to help generate requirements from an application point of view, which will then support and assist the technical design direction for UAS-hosted sensors. ASPRS is a credible partner in this endeavor since its mission is to promote the ethical application of active and passive sensors in the disciplines of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geographic information systems. Additionally, ASPRS has developed standards used in the production of digital geospatial data. These include the Accuracy Standards for Aerial Triangulation and Ground Control Points, Vertical Accuracy Standards for Elevation Data, and Horizontal Accuracy Requirements for Elevation Data, among others.

Other important UAS standards include the OGC's Sensor Web Enablement standards. Dr. Scott Serich, Director, Interoperality Programs at OGC and Sam Bacharach, Consultant at WiSC Enterprises, LLC, will lead a technical session at GeoTech, "Data Standards for UAS Sensor Data".

GeoTech 2015 will take place at George Mason University on September 23-24, 2015See Preliminary Schedule.

GeoTech 2015 is bringing together the platform and payload community with consumers of data generated using UAS systems.

Joint SIG 3D and OGC Workshop on CityGML ADE for a building data model for urban energy simulation (Energy ADE)

Start: 
Tuesday, 2014-05-27
End: 
Tuesday, 2014-05-27
Details: 

The OGC CityGML SWG, the SIG 3D, and Hochschule fuer Technik Stuttgart will host a joint workshop to gather requirements, ideas, suggestions, and positive as well as negative experience from CityGML users, data producers, software vendors, and scientists developing and using a CityGML Energy Application Domain Extension. Aim of the workshop is to discuss and define a harmonized version of a CityGML EnergyADE and other development tools like libraries for wide spread use in the development of applications in the energy sector. The workshop will take place on the 27th of May, 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany. Further information on the venue can be found here: Venue.

In the recent years many research groups, companies, and users intensively worked with CityGML on energy topics. In order to promote the use of CityGML in the energy sector e.g. for individual, quarter wide or city wide computations and simulations a coordinated and harmonized version of a EnergyADE is desirable. Participants are invited to communicate their experience in short presentations and to introduce their concepts or modifications or share their experience gained from practical application of CityGML in the energy sector.

27th International Cartographic Conference 16th General Assembly

Start: 
Sunday, 2015-08-23
End: 
Friday, 2015-08-28
Details: 

The ICC 2015 in Rio de Janeiro will be an opportunity to reflect on how the fields of Cartography and Geoinformation Science are becoming more relevant than ever. Without maps we would be "spatially blind". Knowledge about spatial relations and location of objects is extremely important for enabling economic development, managing and administering land, handling disasters and crisis situations or simply to show individuals the best way to get to a specific place. The conference will gather cartography and GI science experts, governmental authorities, commercial cartography representatives, academics and students of Geoinformation (and related fields such as computer science, cognitive sciences or remote sensing), designers and artists, VGI and crowdsourcing activists. To sum it up, it will be an event for all those who are interested in the relevance, the attractiveness and the contemporaneity of maps and cartography! As the world authoritative body for cartography and GI Science, ICA is very pleased that Brazil, one of the most dynamic member states of ICA, is working hard to host the global community of Cartography and GI Science at ICC 2015.

3D Summit 2014 Now Open for Registration

This summit is open to both members and non-members of OGC. You can register here.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) 3D Information Management Domain Working Group (3DIM) is hosting its third 3D Summit as part of the OGC's June 2014 Technical Committee meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on 12 June 2014.  The primary topic for this year's 3D Summit is State of the Art in 3D, with particular focus on the following aspects. 

1. Technologies: Topics and technologies which have not been exposed to the OGC community.

2. Applications: Things you cannot do in 2D.

3. Management: Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the built environment.

 

At this 3D Summit we will also award the second 3DIM Award for exceptional use of 3D standards.

Associated with the 3D Summit will be the 3D Geneva Geospatial Showcase (http://goo.gl/iLQ2nu), an interactive walk-through of Geneva demonstrating innovative use of various 3D data sets and applications in an urban space.

The past 3D Summits in Boston and Boulder were very well attended and provided excellent forums for discussion of the use of OGC and other 3D standards in the broad community.  Now being held for the first time in Europe, the event aims to show the State of the Art in Geospatial 3D through short presentations and discussions with industry-leading technologists.

The organizers of the 3D Summit invite potential presenters to submit short abstracts (less than 300 words) of their topics by 18 May 2104.  Presenters are requested to indicate whether they would prefer to make 20 minute presentations or 5 minute "lightning talks" and to which of the three aspects (mentioned above) the talk relates. Selection of abstracts for final presentation at the 3D Summit will be made by a committee of OGC staff, the 3DIM chairs, and the previous recipient of the 3DIM Award by 27 May 2014.

 Please submit abstracts to 3dsummit [at] opengeospatial.org.

 Thank you,

Scott, Benjamin, and Carsten

Chairs, 3DIM DWG

HIC 2014 – 11th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HYDROINFORMATICS

Start: 
Sunday, 2014-08-17
End: 
Thursday, 2014-08-21
Details: 

 

Hydroinformatics is a strongly inter-disciplinary field, which links water and environmental problems with various computational modelling methods and fast developing information and communication technologies. Especially the need to standardize and harmonize data protocols and descriptions has prompted many researchers to seek approaches and solutions to overcome data and communication heterogeneity aimed at increased levels of interoperability between different data systems. Hence, a special focus of this conference will be the assessment of the current state of the development of data management (in the broadest sense) approaches that address important aspects related to data storage, data curation, data interoperability, data registration, data provenance, data stewardship, and data annotations. 

 This event is the latest in a well-established series of bi-annual Hydroinformatics conferences started in the early nineties. Furthermore this conference is supported by three world-leading international organisations, IAHR (International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research), IAHS (International Association of Hydrological Sciences) and IWA (International Water Association). 

 OGC-related events at HIC2014:

  • Ulrich Looser will give a presentation titled, "International Standardisation of Water Information Exchange: Activities of the WMO/OGC Hydrology Domain Working Group".
  • Ilyz Zaslavski with lead a workshop on "Hydrology Domain Working Group of the Open Geospatial Consortium and the World Meteorological Organization." - Session: R02: Semantic Integration in Water Resources. Session date/time: 17/Aug/2014, 1:30pm - 3:15pm.
