GeoWeb 2010 will take place in Vancouver, Canada July 26-30 and its organizers are currently seeking submissions for presentations and workshops.

GeoWeb is the industry-leading conference focused on the collective impact of the Web on geographic information standards, architectures and technology and the convergence of GIS and the Internet and the resulting economic, social and technical consequences. GeoWeb 2010 will feature well known keynote and invited speakers, workshops and tutorials, technical presentations, panel sessions, and product showcase opportunities. No other geospatial conference provides this level of knowledge intensity and is a must-attend conference for anyone involved in shaping the future of the geospatial industry.

Distributed sensor networks are attracting more and more interest in applications for large-scale monitoring of the environment, civil structures, roadways, animal habitats, etc. With the rapidly increasing number of large-scale sensor network deployments, the vision of a World-Wide Sensor Web (WSW) is becoming a reality. Similar to the World-Wide Web (WWW), which acts essentially as a "World-Wide Computer", the Sensor Web can be considered as a "World-Wide Sensor" or a "cyberinfrastructure" that instruments and monitors the physical world at temporal and spatial scales that are currently impossible. The WSW will generate tremendous volumes of priceless data, enabling scientists to observe previously unobservable phenomena.

Sensor web examples include US's National Ecological Observatory Networks (NEON), Canada's Geospatial Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Sensing (GeoCENS), Korea's Ubiquitous City (uCity), etc. In addition, we are also seeing the emergence of citizen sensing systems that use the ubiquitous and location-enabled nature of mobile phones to build large-scale urban sensing systems that using the phones as mobile sensor nodes. Such citizen sensing systems include the Mobile Millennium project, the CycleSense project, etc.

The GeoWeb 2010 Sensor Web academic track seeks to address research issues related to sensor web. We aim to bring together sensor web experts to present novel research and exchange ideas relating to the state of the art and its future directions. Real world results and deployments are particularly welcomed.

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.

Schedule of Meetings: 

Register to attend the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Technical Committee's Smart Grid Ad Hoc Meeting, "The Smart Grid's Geospatial Requirements"! As Mark Reichardt, President and CEO of the OGC, explains in "Space, Time, and the Smart Grid’s Neighboring Worlds ", Smart Grid web services will need to communicate information about location, proximity, political and ownership boundaries, weather-affected regions and more. Those web services will communicate through open standard interfaces and encodings IF THE SMART GRID STANDARDS COMMUNITY MAKES IT SO! If your company or agency is involved in the Smart Grid Standards effort, we encourage you to meet with other members of the Smart Grid standards community to explore the Smart Grid's geospatial issues in a special Smart Grid Ad Hoc meeting in the Olympus Mons (CL4) facility at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California from 1400-1700 on Wednesday afternoon, December 9, 2009. Agenda for the Smart Grid Ad Hoc meeting: 1. Areas of convergence between current Smart Grid standards and OGC standards: Common Information Model and the contexts for geospatial information and processing, Wide Area Situational Awareness, cyber-seurity, requirements for Sensor Webs and other topics that are defined or inferred in Release 1 of the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards . 2. OGC involvement and participation: formation of a Domain Working Group and orchestration of collaborative work by OGC and other SDO's (IEEE, IETF, OASIS, etc). 3. Next Steps and Actions. We invite you to also attend the OGC Technical Committee's Evening Reception and dinner from 1830-2100 at the world famous Computer History Museum in Mountain View.  The OGC holds its Technical Committee Meetings five times per year at locations around the world, and the Evening Receptions are always memorable events! The ad hoc meeting is free but registration is required.  Click here to register.There is a $50 charge to attend the reception and dinner.  Payment will be collected at on-site registration and must be made via Credit Card.If you cannot attend, but wish to participate, there is limited conference call capability: dial in +1 512 225 3050 passcode:36429# Full OGC Technical Committee meeting information can be found here .

What role will standards play in future ICT, environmental and research programs of the European Commission? And how is the OGC participating in this process? What are the experiences and results of some of the projects funded by the European Commission. And what might be the benefits in using standards while participating in such a project?
