The workshop will be held at NCAR Center Green in Boulder, Colorado.
At this workshop, key representatives from industry, academia, and government will provide invited talks focused on key issues, tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate modeling results. The workshop will take place a few days after the FOSS4G conference in Denver and immediately following the OGC TC meeting in Boulder.
The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS, see earthobservations.org) is a complex international system of sensors, communication devices, storage systems, computational and other devices used to observe the Earth and to gather the data needed for a better understanding of the Earth’s processes. In addition, GEOSS includes models and processes to create information from the observational data.
With the highly coupled nature of the earth system and the need to understand global environmental processes and their regional linkages, it is increasingly important to allow and enable disparate organizations around the world to access, process and share climate data and model results now being compiled for the next assessment report (AR5) by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Regional downscaling and ensemble applications, using common standards for exchange and encoding, are of particular interest for the coming year, as the next phase of global modeling results become available. It is also crucial to long-term and interdisciplinary use of climate data to develop methods for collection, understanding, and preservation of data quality and other provenance metadata. At this workshop in Boulder, we will emphasize tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate modeling results.
GEOSS is a project of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). The OGC is a Participating Organization in GEO, and the OGC leads the multi-year GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP). The AIP is leading the incorporation of contributed components consistent with the GEOSS Architecture using a GEOSS Web Portal and a GEOSS Clearinghouse search facility to access services through GEOSS Interoperability Arrangements.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) 3D Information Management (3DIM) Working Group is hosting a second 3D Summit focused on the current impact and future opportunities for open standards to better enable 3D geospatial practices. Building on the success of the 2009 3D Summit hosted at MIT, this industry gathering is free and open to anyone interested in 3D applications and standards that enhance interoperability and integration.
Please contribute to and join us for this one-day summit that will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 in downtown Boulder, Colorado, in conjunction with the OGC Technical Committee Meeting.
Join the conversation! The 3D Summit is the best opportunity in 2011 to engage in 3D standards.
Call for Presentations
Participants and focus
Participants from industry-leading organizations around the world will engage in interactive discussions, lightning talks, and inspiring presentations. Presentations on whole city 3D models, campus visualization, and indoor 3D models operating on platforms from server to mobile for industries as diverse as urban design and construction, consumer mass market, augmented reality, and more are welcome. What are the emerging best practices for data and services interoperability? Who is leading the way with technical innovation and market adoption?
A separate registration for the 3D Summit is required. You can register here.

In conjunction with the ISO/TC211
Plenary Meeting being held in Canberra this December, an “Open
Geospatial Information Day” has been organised to showcase Australian
and New Zealand development of applications and tools based on
international geospatial standards developed by ISO/TC211 and the Open
Geospatial Consortium (OGC). In addition to these applications, various
jurisdictions have developed spatial policies, identifying these
standards to assist in the management, discovery and delivery of spatial
information. This event presents a unique opportunity to engage with the
International geospatial standards community visiting Australia for the
ISO/TC211 Plenary Meeting.

Starts at 10h00 am on Oct 21 and ends no later than 16h30 on Oct 22
There is no registration fee, however, participants are responsible for their own transport & hotel costs. The meeting is open to both OGC and non-OGC members.
The OGC Aviation DWG will be meeting at the Eurocontrol HQ on Oct 21 and 22 to
-- Advance the development of a draft metadata profile for AIXM 5.1
-- Advance the development of a GML profile for Aviation
-- Review results of Aviation-related activities within OGC (OWS-6, OWS-7, FAA SAA Dissemination Pilot)
-- Review/plan upcoming DWG tasks and follow-up activities
The meeting will be a hands-on technical meeting to produce updated drafts of the metadata and GML profiles. Please consider attending and contributing, especially if you have previous experience with GML, Simple Feature Profile, AIXM, ICAO, ADQ (Europe), Airport GIS (FAA), eTOD, AMDB requirements, etc.
