Simon Chester, OGC Communication Manager

About Me:

Simon is the communication manager for the international open location problem-solving and standards organisation, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). He produces non-technical (or translated from technical) written content for OGC across various channels including magazines, the OGC Blog, and social media. He holds a BSc in GIS and resource & environmental management, as well as a graduate diploma in science communication. He worked in GIS for a few years before jumping ship and becoming the assistant editor for Australia’s only geospatial magazine, Position. He left Australia in 2015 to travel via rail to the UK, in a brash effort to confirm the size of the globe (rather large). He joined OGC in early 2016. He’s part tech geek, part science nerd, and a borderline music obsessive.
