COBWEB and Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) 99th Technical & Planning Committee (TC/PC) Meeting

The Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) 99th Technical & Planning Committee (TC/PC) Meeting will be hosted by University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland from 20 June to 24 June, 2016.

COBWEB will be sponsoring the event and invites OGC Members to join us for an icebreaker event on the evening of Monday 20th June, and a side event on the afternoon of Tuesday 21st June. To register, please visit the registration page here.

This meeting will be partly framed by a theme of Citizen Science and use of public and open sources to collect and improve geospatial information. Over the course of the week attendees will hear how OGC standards have been used to make citizen sourced data discoverable and available at interfaces that make it easy for others to use, securely where necessary.

COBWEB will demonstrate the use of semantics, quality assurance and different serialisations to make the data comprehensible. We invite attendees to join us in a discussion of how open interoperability standards can help unlock the huge potential latent in the wealth of citizen data and take forward work undertaken in COBWEB as the project finishes.
