At Map Asia 2010 & ISG 2010, Steven Ramage, Executive Director, Marketing and Communications, The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Norway will conduct a workshop titled "Standards and Interoperability":

Most organizations that could benefit from geospatial information don't yet benefit because spatial information has been locked in non-standard systems, or “stove pipes”. A committent to interoperability and to standards unlocks this foundational information type. However, with geospatial data and processing as well as with other kinds of data and processing, it is clear that while technical interoperability is necessary, it is not sufficient. Therefore, the use of standards and interoperable architectures are secondary to an understanding of a given business process and how geospatial data and services and by extension standards can best be used. The workshop will explore the return on investment, requirements and solutions for integration of geospatial standards and interoperability strategies into government and commercial business processes.

OSCRE Seminar – Do you know what you own? Solutions for consolidated portfolio reporting and benchmarking. London, England

Start:

End:

Details: 

Access to good quality data around real estate portfolios is increasingly important and responses to the question “Do you know what you own?” are increasingly uncomfortable. 

Large and diverse portfolios comprising a range of property types and managed by local business units using a range of systems presents a number of genuine challenges for consolidated reporting and benchmarking. 

Standardisation at industry level is a large part of the solution and this free event will bring together those who share this problem with those who are solving it.

Business Seminar

Best practice makes perfect with Open Geospatial Standards


Thursday 25th January 2007, 0930-1530


British Geological Survey Offices, Nottingham, UK

 

Effective use of geographical data underpins many critical business and governmental decisions and strategies - in marketing, distribution, sales, planning, environmental protection, defence, security, service provision or any one of a dozen other areas of business, local and central government.

All too often business decisions and support systems are based upon what is perceived to be the most cost effective application of geographic information and processing systems. Often they are made with cursory thought towards the reduction of technology life cycle costs and open spatial standards.

A few questions to consider.

  1. How well you make use of geospatial information (GI) to enable your operations? This can make the difference between profit and loss, between effective provision of public services and failing services.
  2. How will you adapt your current products and services to exploit new capabilities and how will you protect today's investments from tomorrow's disruptive technologies?

 

This Seminar was aimed at all decision makers and managers who have to face these challenges in the coming months and years, it helped describe how to achieve interoperability across technologies, how to future-proof your investments and present best-practise for optimal results.

Start: 
Monday, 2011-05-23
End: 
Wednesday, 2011-05-25
Details: 

The explosion of computing driven location based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies,  such as cloud computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications.

Innovative research and application technologies are the brightest spotlights at COM.Geo conference. COM.Geo 2011 is the 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application (R&A) with focuses on the latest computing technologies for multidisciplinary research and development that enables the exploration in geospatial areas. COM.Geo Conference is an exclusive event that connects researchers, developers, scientists, and application users from academia, government, and industry in both computing and geospatial fields. It builds the bridges between research and applications through computing and geospatial areas.
