GEOSS Workshop XLIII: Sharing Climate Information and Knowledge

Start: 
Friday, 2011-09-23
End: 
Friday, 2011-09-23
Location: 

The workshop will be held at NCAR Center Green in Boulder, Colorado.

Description:


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.

3D Summit 2011

Start: 
Tuesday, 2011-09-20
End: 
Tuesday, 2011-09-20
Details: 


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?

Open Geospatial Information Day - Canberra

Start: 
Wednesday, 2010-12-08
End: 
Wednesday, 2010-12-08
Details: 

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.
