The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) 3D Information Management (3DIM) Working Group is hosting a second 3D Summit focused on the current impact and future opportunities for open standards to better enable 3D geospatial practices. Building on the success of the 2009 3D Summit hosted at MIT, this industry gathering is free and open to anyone interested in 3D applications and standards that enhance interoperability and integration.

Please contribute to and join us for this one-day summit that will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 in downtown Boulder, Colorado, in conjunction with the OGC Technical Committee Meeting.

Join the conversation! The 3D Summit is the best opportunity in 2011 to engage in 3D standards.

Call for Presentations

Participants and focus
Participants from industry-leading organizations around the world will engage in interactive discussions, lightning talks, and inspiring presentations. Presentations on whole city 3D models, campus visualization, and indoor 3D models operating on platforms from server to mobile for industries as diverse as urban design and construction, consumer mass market, augmented reality, and more are welcome. What are the emerging best practices for data and services interoperability? Who is leading the way with technical innovation and market adoption?
