GeoIgnite 2020 Track Announcement: The Impact of OGC Standards on Society

The Impact of OGC Standards on Society

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”

Track Chair: Trevor Taylor

We live in both exciting and challenging times. Sources of location and geospatial data are ever-increasing and coming from sources outside the Geospatial community. At the same time, climate change is creating a dramatic increase in environmental challenges that result in massive socio-economic effects.

As a community, it is now more important than ever to work together to improve our ability to make location data more findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR).

Co-organized by The OGC Canada Forum and Natural Resources Canada, the session will focus on selected community activities and the impact of standards on real-world challenges in Canada and around the world.
