The international Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is hosting an Environmental Data Summit during their Technical and Planning Committee meetings on Wednesday, December 6, 2017. The summit is open to all comers, at no cost.

This summit provides an opportunity for a range of New Zealand organisations to join international OGC members in a day of focussed presentations and discussion about standards-based exchange of open environmental data. We encourage providers of environmental data - especially those contributing to a distributed data commons such as government agencies, research institutes and universities – to attend. We would also welcome users of these data, in both the private and public sector, to participate.

The event is a technical forum and is concerned with what is being done and how. It also seeks to expose the standards community to its end users so they can talk about their experiences using OGC standards-based systems and articulate future needs. A significant portion of the summit will therefore be set aside for open discussion and we are offering five minute slots in preceding a ‘Soap Box’ session to allow participants to have their say and help frame the debate. If you are interested in speaking during this slot, please email Alistair Ritchie (ritchiea [at] landcareresearch.co.nz).

The organisers thank the Ministry for Environment for their sponsorship of refreshments.
