Tuesday, 2013-11-05
Location: 

The Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Alberta

Sponsors: 

TECTERRA, along with the OGC

Schedule of Meetings: 

Business today is being driven by geospatial data: everything has a position and it is critical to know where things are and how they connect. However, a myriad of proprietary data formats make sharing geospatial data a painful process, even within the same company!

TECTERRA, along with the OGC, is proud to host the Opening Doors, Connecting Business event. This event will feature talks by companies that have implemented Open Geospatial Standards in their business with a focus on how it improved their operations, client communication, and ultimately their profitability.

In today's ever changing business environment, you need to ensure you are part of the conversations that will change the way your industry operates and this event is a perfect opportunity to participate!

Join us on November 5, 2013 at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Alberta to learn about the latest in geospatial standards and network with industry professionals!

Webinar: OGC Health Domain Working Group Ad Hoc Meeting

Start: 
Friday, 2013-05-31
End: 
Friday, 2013-05-31
Location: 

Over the past decade, health authorities have used geospatial technologies to help respond to influenza outbreaks, plan responses to public health risks of extreme weather conditions, implement beast cancer programs, track West Nile virus, and much more. Wider use of OGC standards by the health mapping community would make more data and processing resources discoverable, assessable and accessible.

A draft two-page Health Domain Working Group (DWG) Charter was introduced into the OGC membership and various expressions of interest and recommendations have been collected.  An ad-hoc meeting webinar has been arranged to invite wider review of the draft Health DWG Charter, collect inputs, and move toward member adoption of a formal  charter. The meeting is free and open to the public. The proposed OGC Health DWG Ad Hoc webinar will provide OGC members and the public with an opportunity to identify marketplace interoperability needs and inform non-member participants in global, national, and sub-national health mapping efforts about the OGC standards process.

Here is the preliminary agenda:

1.      Welcome / Introductions

2.      Overview of Draft Health DWG Charter

3.      Background of previous OWS testbeds and pilot projects and OGC standards that touch on health.

4.      Identification of initiatives in different countries/regions that are using OGC standards to support health domain applications

5.      Identification of key barriers, needs, and opportunities 

6.      Discussion

7.      Goals and Objectives – Informing next steps toward a OGC Health DWG

8.      Identification of interested members / nominations for co-chairs

9.      Close

I look forward to your participation.

Directions Magazine Webinar: Open Sensor Webs for Better Living in Cities and Regions

Start: 
Tuesday, 2012-06-12
End: 
Tuesday, 2012-06-12
Timezone: 
Eastern (EST)
Location: 

Webinar Information: 

Previous OGC GovFuture webinars, produced in cooperation with Directions Magazine, provided an overview of OGC standards for Spatial Data Infrastructures and also looked at the Dutch national program for 3D urban modeling and analysis based on the OGC CityGML Encoding Standard. Our June 12 GovFuture webinar will focus on the many ways in which OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards can help cities and regions improve quality of life for citizens.

This webinar will show how Internet-connected sensors are being used to support municipal and regional operations. Speakers will show how open standards for sensor webs multiply the potential of such sensor networks. The webinar will feature speakers who have been closely involved in multiple projects that take advantage of open standards to help enable officials and citizens to publish, discover, assess, control, access and use sensors as well as live and stored sensor data.

During this webinar, you will learn:

How the EU FP7 project, EO2HEAVEN (Earth Observation and Environmental Modelling for the Mitigation of Health Risks), funded by the European Commission, has combined environmental sensor data with other sources of data, including public health data, to assess environmental risks in Europe and Africa
How open sensor networks can be managed with respect to privacy, liability and security issues
How GovFuture membership in the OGC can help governments derive maximum value from geospatial technologies integrated with sensor webs
Speakers

Kym Watson of the Fraunhofer Institute IOSB (Germany) will give a summary of how OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards have been used in EO2HEAVEN to the benefit of policy makers, local authorities and scientists.  Watson is the coordinator of the FP7 project EO2HEAVEN and has represented EO2HEAVEN in various GEOSS meetings organized by GEO and the European Commission.

Simon Jirka, the 52°North representative to EO2HEAVEN, will talk about the technical details and challenges of sensor webs based on open standards. The 52°North group (Germany) is doing most of the SWE implementations for EO2HEAVEN.

Steven Ramage will introduce the speakers and speak briefly about the OGC, OGC's Sensor Web Enablement initiative, and OGC GovFuture membership.

Who should attend

This webinar is oriented toward local and subnational government entities worldwide that could benefit from interoperability standards for sensor networks and could also benefit from access to OGC GovFuture resources.
