Event Description: 

Registration is just the start.

The OGC is proud to present its 120th OGC Member Meeting!


In an effort to continue to evolve location and make Geospatial information FAIR - Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable - the OGC and partner community is gathering for our 120th Member Meeting. Evolving technologies and standards for the good of society starts here.

Tomorrow’s innovations start with today’s dedication.

Join keynotes, special sessions, and working groups that are evolving location technologies and standards across the globe.

This event is proudly co-located with the Singapore Geospatial Festival.

Singapore Geospatial Festival 2021 brings the international geospatial community (public and private sectors as well as the community-at-large) together for co-located activities promoting the use of GPS/location-based and mapping innovation. The event is organised by GeoWorks, Singapore Land Authority’s geospatial industry centre.

Join your community, build partnerships, create lasting impacts.

The evolution of location technologies is taking place right now as the world expands their view to Space. Technologies and Standards are enabling organizations around the globe to understand the world, unseen opportunities, and the universe.

This workshop will start with the OGC Domain Working Groups’ technical perspective of how standards can enable innovation in the New Space, spatial, and location communities. Industry leaders will then discuss the community impact on changing business models and domains.
