Event Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites you to its ‘Mixed Reality to the Edge’ Workshop at SOFWERX in Tampa, FL, on April 30 2019.
As part of OGC’s ‘Mixed Reality to the Edge’ Concept Development Study (CDS), the workshop will feature Keynote speakers and three panels in which visionary experts from Defense, Utilities, First Responders, and more will provide short position statements and lead discussion on three main topics: 
‘To the Edge’ - the requirements of providing 3d geospatial content and services to first responders, field deployed utility workers, warfighters, and more to ‘the edge’ where connectivity may be limited or non-existent.

Future of the Industry - what 3D/4D data and services will be able to make it out to ‘the edge’ and how will it benefit industry? This include the impacts of augmented reality, real-time sensor fusion and analytics, gaming, and fog computing.

What’s the Pipeline - how is all this geospatial content generated, curated, and delivered now, and how will it be generated, curated, and delivered in the future?
The CDS and workshop aim to investigate requirements and current and future solutions involved in the automation of workflows that curate, discover, process, integrate, and publish (disseminate) 3D/4D geospatial content to users at ‘the edge.’ The results of the workshop presentations and discussions will be integrated with the responses to the request for information and documented in an OGC Engineering Report that will be available for public distribution.
