Domain Modelling and Implementation Masterclass

Friday, 2010-12-03
Friday, 2010-12-03

Sydney, Australia



Schedule of Meetings: 


in conjunction with the OGC Technical Committee meeting


The OGC SDI service architecture relies on communities agreeing to use common data exchange formats and content (standards). The design and deployment of these pose challenges relating to both technical and social issues. Through a number of projects across multiple application domains (including geology, water resources, climate, biodiversity, hazards) the team at CSIRO has developed a body of experience and a suite of technology to assist in addressing these challenges.

This workshop will cover the techniques and tools for establishing an effective development process for a community application schema and the realization of that schema in deployed services. Special attention will be paid to the ongoing management and evolution of the interrelated components required to implement an application.

The workshop will demonstrate use of:

  • The HollowWorld modelling environment for Application Schemas

  • The FullMoon tool for generating an XML implementation and documentation of the model

  • The SolidGround model management tools

  • Vocabulary services

  • Validation services

  • Web Feature Service

  • Model and vocabulary registration

The presentations will be based around real-world examples of schema development from the environmental sector.


The Masterclass should be attended by anyone interested in design or deployment of OGC-conformant data services, particularly those associated with an existing domain community.


[Tentative List of Presenters include: Rob Atkinson, Ben Caradoc-Davies, Simon Cox, Guillaume Duclaux, and others]

25th International Cartographic Conference and the 15th General Assembly of the International Cartographic Association - Palais des Congrès de Paris

Sunday, 2011-07-03
Friday, 2011-07-08

In July 2011, France will host the 25th Conference of the International Cartographic Association (ICA), marking the fiftieth anniversary of the first General Assembly of the Organization.

The 25th International Cartographic Conference is structured in three main segments:

- The conference proper, comprising some 500 oral presentations and many posters over five days, organized in themed sessions which reflect the twenty-eight commissions and working groups of the ICA.

- Two exhibitions of maps, one showing the most recent products from some fifty countries, and the other of children’s drawings.

- An exhibition for the presentation of the players involved in geomatics: suppliers of softwares, hardware, data bases and maps, consultancy firms, geomatic educational institutions or publishers. Involving all the major players from the cartographic and geomatic sector, the professional exhibition, to be held from 4th to 8th July, will allow the presentation of the latest technical innovations from the industry in a single venue, the Palais des Congrès in Paris. With the broadest possible attendance, this exhibition will reach an extensive French and International target public of decision makers and engineers who are keen to discover the latest operational solutions. A not-to-be missed event for both buyers and suppliers of GIS Services, geographical data and maps.

In its organization of the ICA in July 2011, on the theme of an "Enlightened view on Cartography and GIS", the French Committee of Cartography is seeking to combine thematic diversity, high-quality contributions and an up-to-date content. More than 900 submissions from 72 countries have been received by the French Committee of Cartography. Don't miss this international event!

OGC Training at MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014

Wednesday, 2014-05-07
Friday, 2014-05-09

We invite you to register for a 1 day OGC training course to be held May 8, 2014 during the MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014 conference. The training will be in Portuguese and will be led by Luis Bermudez, director of the OGC Compliance Program. Attendees successfully completing the training will receive a certificate from OGC and MundoGeo and either one free membership for their employer or a discount coupon**.

This is an important training session because OGC standards have become increasingly important in a world where location and other types of geographic information are becoming integral parts of the information infrastructure. OGC is the main international organization responsible for open geospatial standards, and these standards make it possible for geospatial data and geoprocessing instructions to be communicated between platforms, systems and applications. Receiving training in OGC standards is important for both software developers and information system managers.

The MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014 Conference and Trade Fair will be held at the Fri Caneca Convention Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

GeoTec Event 2010

Tuesday, 2010-04-13
Thursday, 2010-04-15
GeoTec Event 2010 is Canada's premier geospatial technology conference. Now in its 24th year, the 2010 event continues the tradition of offering an exceptional program focusing on the latest trends in technology and applications.

GeoTec caters to a wide audience of business experts, senior academics and technology specialists. We consistently develop a program that addresses the concerns of all users of GIS, imagery and geospatial data.

In addition, we identify respected speakers to present high-quality, timely papers of specific interest to residents within and around the Toronto region; we offer a vibrant, informative trade show, showcasing software, hardware and services; and we offer an ideal forum for networking and exchanging ideas.

GeoTec includes general sessions covering a variety of topics, and, in addition to the regular program, we include two keynote presentations from high-profile, knowledgeable members of the community. Also, we offer two panel discussions-one comprised of members of GeoWorld magazine's editorial advisory board, and another roundtable discussion with senior executives who address a specific topic currently relevant in the geospatial technology industry. Next year, our roundtable panel will address the topic of data: their accuracy, availability and dissemination process.
