Intro to OGC Standards for Startups and Innovators

Please register your attendance on Eventbrite.


More and more geospatial data is becoming available everyday. And yet, it is not always easy to share it in an efficient way. In this webinar, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) will show how standards are the key to making geospatial information FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.

At the end of this webinar you should be able to:

  • Know what an OGC standard is;
  • Identify which standards are more suitable for different types of geospatial information;
  • Understand how to leverage OGC standards through the OS Data Hub; and
  • Understand how you can continue learning about standards, by getting involved with OGC.
