Another memorable Technical Committee (TC) Meeting (our 112th) was held in September, this time at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, Canada. The setting was, to say the least, spectacular. The meeting saw 130 attendees with key standards leaders and regional experts from industry, academia, and government getting together to exchange ideas, share expertise, and, of course, get to know each other a little better.
Special sessions were held for Sharing Data in Agriculture, the Canada Forum and the Business Value Committee. There was also a SensorThings and Internet of Things (IoT) Summit. Ad hoc meetings were held to consider creating Standards Working Groups (SWGs) for OGC API – Catalogue as well as an Environmental Data Pattern Retrieval API standard.
