An Introduction to Open Geospatial Standards at UBDC

Date: 20 September  2016
Time: 09:30am to 02:30pm
Venue: Sir Alwyn Williams Building (Level 5) University of Glasgow

The Urban Big Data Centre in conjunction with SASNet invite you to a free training workshop on understanding and using open geospatial data standards. This is the third of our capacity-building events funded through our ESRC SASNet fellowship programme and will presented by Steven Ramage. Steven is an independent advisor to organisations including Ordnance Survey Great Britain, the United Nations and the World Bank on location strategy, policy, innovation and standards.

This short course will outline a number of activities ongoing at the OGC, including collaboration with the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO), to tackle global topics including smart cities, 3D planning, indoor navigation and sensor webs.

Participants will gain an initial understanding of international geospatial standards, the global standards community and how to contribute/use open geospatial standards. The topics covered will include:

  • The problem of interoperability
  • Business value of open standards
  • Technical approach for implementing standards
  • The open standards global community
  • Freely available industry resources
