Testbed-18 Demonstration Days (Virtual)

Tuesday, 17 January 2023 09:00 EST

Event Description: 


OGC welcomes all to attend a two-day virtual event and series of demonstrations highlighting the importance of collective development of location interoperability solutions: Testbed 18 Demonstration Days. Join us in celebrating the successes of over nine months of pushing the boundaries of geospatial across communities, and accelerating research, supporting industry innovation, and sharing how common requirements from multiple governments and regions are best addressed by experts across the globe: all for developing location interoperability. 

Join us and learn how OGC is helping identify core technologies in the forefront of geospatial in core topics such as reproducible science, spatial data interoperability, advanced filtering of aviation data, New Space and 3D+ Data Standards, Sensor integration, Machine learning, and more. 

The two day event will focus on demonstrations and related deliverables from core areas in Testbed 18, including their future needs and potential challenges. In this event, OGC will present the outcomes of 2022’s biggest research and development initiative. Testbed-18 was organized into seven main topics (Tasks) as illustrated in the figure below. If you would like to learn more, please check Testbed 18 website and Call for Participation. Help us make location information FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable. 

The work will be detailed and released on a OGC Public Engineering Reports webpage.

Register for this open to the public event, learn more about Testbed-18, and join the future of geospatial.
