Open Geospatial Consortium

4 December 2017 - 8:00am to 8 December 2017 - 5:00pm

Landcare Research is hosting the first Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Technical Committee meeting to be held in New Zealand, and NIWA are proud to be Gold sponsors.

Held in Palmerston North, OGC is an international industry consortium of over 521 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface standards. The standards empower technology developers to make complex spatial information and services accessible and useful for all kinds of applications in Environment, Defence, Health, Agriculture, Meteorology, Sustainable Development, Natural Hazards, Smart Cities and more.

This will be a great opportunity for NIWA to showcase the New Zealand Data Network, a new portal being launched.
