W3C/OGC Joint Workshop Series on Maps for the Web

Monday, 21 September 2020 09:00 EDT
Friday, 2 October 2020 17:00 EDT
Event Description: 

Contributors are needed to help build new web standards for maps in the browser. What are the risks? What are the potentials? What do we need to standardize? Help us define the next generation of mapping on the Web. Proposals to present or lead sessions are due by June 30, 2020.

These workshops will bring together experts in browser development, Web standards, and Web mapping client tools & applications to explore the potential of standardized maps for the Web. The series will form a virtual meeting of developers, cartographers, policy makers, and other people with a stake in the future of Web standards relating to the display and use of maps on the Web.

  • The main series of workshop presentations will be spread out, approximately one per day, for two weeks (21 September − 2 October 2020). The recorded sessions will be posted online for asynchronous viewing. Questions and open discussion will continue using online forums, which will remain open until the end of October.
  • Breakout and hack sessions will be scheduled during the same period. These may include a mix of video presentations, live video chat or IRC chat, and written forums.
  • In late October, moderators will post final calls for consensus, summarizing the conclusions of each discussion. These summaries will then be integrated into a workshop report.
