Fee: No fee; open participation. 

This one day IGARSS pre-conference workshop is focused on Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) engineering, implementation of the GEOSS information infrastructure, and GEOSS emerging applications and pilot projects. The workshop will also provide a forum for discussing the development and operational issues of Air Quality and Coastal Ecosystems. Specific emphasis will be on the overarching engineering challenges for this system of systems.

FOSS4G 2010

Start: 
Monday, 2010-09-06
End: 
Thursday, 2010-09-09
Details: 

FOSS4G is "the conference" for Open Source Geospatial Software and in year 2010 will meet in Barcelona, Spain.
FOSS4G is heralded as the international "gathering of tribes" of open source geospatial communities, where developers and users show off their latest software and projects.
The spatial industry is undergoing rapid innovations and the open source spatial community is one of the forces driving the change. The FOSS4G conference is more than a melting pot of great ideas it is a catalyst and opportunity to unite behind the many successful geospatial products, standards and protocols.
Barcelona is one of the most attractive cities in this world, famous for its architecture, mild climate, Mediterranean history, place of Olympic Games in 1992, is full of attraction for any kind of visitor.

ISPRS Workshop on Geospatial Data Infrastructure: from data acquisition and updating to smarter services

Start: 
Thursday, 2011-10-20
End: 
Friday, 2011-10-21
Details: 

Goal of spatial data infrastructure (SDI) is to improve quality and reduce costs related to geographic information, to increase the benefits of using available data, and to establish key partnerships with states, counties, cities, tribal nations, academia and the private sector to increase data availability.

With efforts of previous years, datasets of various types have been produced at global, national, regional, city level. Recently much demand on service and application of SDI has been raised and much attention has been paid to data updating, data harmonization, and geo-spatial cyberinfrastructure that aims at solving the problem of efficiently connecting data, computers, and people over the Internet.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a platform for scholars and professionals in relevant areas to exchange research ideas and interests, to present the newest research results, to discuss the cutting-edge technology, and to promote the development and application of SDI and the international collaboration.

Next Generation ISR - Opportunities, Challenges, Emerging Threats and Capabilities

Start: 
Wednesday, 2012-06-13
End: 
Thursday, 2012-06-14
Details: 

This two-day general session will assemble the Key Organizations and the Senior Leading Experts that are shaping the direction of Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) current requirements and exposing the many future capabilities for the services and public service sectors. Industry plays an increasing role in providing ISR assets across a very broad range of needed missions – including but not limited to: Persistent Global Surveillance & Global Strike, Counter-intelligence & Counterterrorism, Maritime Domain Awareness, Space Defense, Anti-Access and Contested Global Commons. ISR and evolving technologies clearly being an imperative need in Irregular Warfare has resulted in operational surges in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Carl Reed, CTO, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) will be among the speakers.The conference will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada

Domain Modelling and Implementation Masterclass

Start: 
Friday, 2010-12-03
End: 
Friday, 2010-12-03
Location: 

Sydney, Australia

Sponsors: 

CSIRO

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

Start: 
Sunday, 2011-07-03
End:

Details: 

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!
