Innovation in OGC
A core value of OGC is that we “value our technical excellence and innovation.” Technical innovation occurs across every part of the Consortium, but the two main starting points for innovative ideas and technical achievements are OGC’s Innovation Program and OGC’s Tech Trends activity.
The OGC Innovation Program is a forum for OGC members to solve difficult geospatial challenges via a collaborative and agile process. OGC members (sponsors and technology implementers) come together to solve problems, produce prototypes, develop demonstrations, provide best practices, and advance the future of standards. Outcomes of OGC Innovation Initiatives feed the Standards Program with new technologies and solutions that can then become globally recognized open geospatial standards.
