The Open Geospatial Consortium Technical Committee Meeting – Banff Alberta
September 9 - September 13
Come and join us for the 112th OGC Technical Committee meeting. This will be an amazing week with a broad range of meetings and topics being discussed. You don’t have to be an OGC member to attend an OGC meeting. Whilst some meetings will be member only, many are open to anyone to attend and new voices are always welcome.

OGC standards are implemented worldwide to make it easier to rapidly integrate and mobilize location information and technologies to improve decision making. OGC standards also help reduce IT lifecycle costs by drastically reducing custom integration effort. By making it easier to integrate and apply diverse sources of location information, OGC standards help make air travel safe, improve weather predictions, warn of imminent disasters, respond to emergencies, support city planning and operations, and provide citizens and consumers with helpful mobile apps.
OGC, as a standard developing organization, provides a stable baseline for innovation. Innovation and standards appear to be opposing ideas, but, the two ideas work together to prevent the extremes of technological stagnation and disorder. Standards bring order to the disarray of the implementations of new ideas and provides a baseline for innovation to flourish. That innovation, in turn, feeds the creation of new ccand updated standards.
