Dec 3, 2010 at USGS Reston, VA

 

The Spatial Ontology Community of Practice (SOCoP) is hosting a workshop on spatial semantics and ontologies at the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Center
12201 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, VA 20192
on Friday December 3, 2010 from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM. This workshop is organized by SOCoP with support from the USGS, Ontolog, and others.

 

The purpose of the workshop is to continue the discussion from the previous SOCoP workshops in advancing spatial ontologies and semantic tools in the geospatial data domain. The main theme of this 3rd iteration of the workshop is the current and future state of development, implementation, and use of geospatial semantics and ontologies in meeting organizational mission and program needs.

 

In addressing this theme, as at last year’s workshop, we anticipate having a morning of talks and an afternoon of small group roundtable discussions. Expected this year will be presentations on GeoSPARQL, a geo SameAs Demonstration, Open Geospatial Consortium GeoSemantics, USGS Ontology for The National Map, and National Geospatial Intelligence Agency activities. In addition there will be a discussion about a National Science Foundation INTEROP Project which was recently awarded to several Spatial Ontology Community of Practice members. This Project: “an Interdisciplinary Network to Support Geospatial Data Sharing, Integration, and Interoperability” promises to be an exciting opportunity in developing and using ontologies, software tools, and collaboration methods to support geospatial data sharing, integration, and interoperation.

 

There is no charge for the workshop and more information about SOCoP and the workshop will available at www.socop.org as it is developed. Even though there will be no charge for the Workshop, we will ask attendees to register with SOCoP to facilitate logistics and entry into the USGS Building. Any questions regarding the 3rd Annual SOCoP Workshop can be addressed to Dr. Gary Berg-Cross via email: gbergcross [at] gmail.com.      

A final program, meeting location directions and registration information should be available soon.

 

Proceedings from last year’s Workshop complete with presentation slides and audio are available at http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?SOCoP/Workshop_2009_11_12, thanks to the support of Ontolog.

5th International 3D GeoInfo Workshop 2010 - Berlin, Germany

Welcome to Berlin

The 5th International 3D GeoInfo Workshop 2010 aims at bringing together international state-of-the-art research and facilitating the dialogue on emerging topics in the field of 3D geo-information. In recent years, research has focused on improving 3D data acquisition technology through remote sensing, photogrammetry, laser altimetry techniques (LiDAR), and visualization technology (3D CAD and Virtual Reality (VR) system) for 3D urban environments. The resulting 3D models can be maintained in several types of 3D models: TEN (Tetrahedral Network), Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) models, Regular Polytopes, TIN Boundary representation and 3D volume quad edge structure, layered/topology models, voxel based models, 3D models used in urban planning/polyhedrons, and n-dimensional models including time. However, researchers still face many challenges today regarding the development of suitable data models representing topological relationships among 3D spatial objects in built environments.

Details: 

Many OGC members will be present at the 7th International 3DGeoInfo Conference co-organized by the Geomatics Department – Laval University and the GEOIDE Network. 3DGeoInfo will be held in the beautiful city of Quebec, Canada in May 2012. 3DGeoInfo is part of an important joint event called Global Geospatial Conference 2012. (including GSDI World Conference, GEOIDE Annual Scientific Conference, Canadian Geomatics Conference). 3D GeoInfo 2012 is recognized as an official event of ISPRS.3DGeoInfo aims at bringing together international state-of-the-art research and facilitating the dialogue on emerging topics in the field of 3D geo-information. The conference offers an interdisciplinary forum in the fields of 3D data collection and modelling; reconstruction and methods for 3D representation; data management for maintenance of 3D geo information or 3D data analysis and visualization. We sincerely welcome you to take part of this activity in sharing with us your expertise and passion about 3D data and technologies.

Africa Geospatial Forum

Start:

Details: 

From the year 2006, Map Africa conference has evolved tremendously with time, encompassing and deliberating on various application areas and emerging geospatial technologies serving the same. Map Africa 2010 is a remarkable milestone that we achieved through the journey of Map Africa series of conferences.


In order to maintain our pace with the changing world and be a part of the transforming mapping industry, we are glad to rebrand the conference as Africa Geospatial Forum and take it to new destination i.e ‘Kenya’. Kenya, being classified as a developing and an emerging African nation with rich diversity is an appropriate venue to host the Forum. 


Africa Geospatial Forum shall have impressive technical programme with a renowned array of speakers from across the continent who will share their unique perspective and insights into the African Geospatial industry with little focus on the issue of vision 2030. The conference shall offer an unparalleled balance of substantive information with ample time for networking and socialising. The forum will be built upon the past experiences with the same objective of propagating and promoting the significant usage of Geospatial Technologies as a tool serving varied domains. Through the voices of key major users, decision makers, technology innovators, and industry leaders the conference will examine the programmes, systems, and initiatives that are transforming the continent with key focus on sectors like infrastructure & utilities, Earth Observation System, emerging trends, social development etc.
