5th Workshop on the Use of GIS/OGC Standards in Meteorology

Tuesday, 2014-10-28
Thursday, 2014-10-30

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is very active in developing standards that cater for emerging technologies and that allow interoperability between communities that previously were not able to easily communicate. Embracing these standards will allow the meteorological community to reach out to a wider audience, and keep up with the ever changing landscape of Internet-based services.

The general aim of the workshops on the use of GIS/OGC standards in meteorology is to promote collaboration between meteorological services in order to agree on a set of common geo-science standards, especially OGC standards, that will enhance interoperability. In particular, the roadmap for activities of the OGC Meteorology & Oceanography Domain Working Group (Met Ocean DWG) should be discussed and reviewed. The Met Ocean DWG was established in 2009 after this was recommended during the first workshop held at ECMWF in 2008.

4th International FIG 3D Cadastre Workshop

Sunday, 2014-11-09
Tuesday, 2014-11-11
The increasing complexity of infrastructures and densely built-up areas requires a proper registration of the legal
status (private and public), which can only be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D cadastral registrations.
The registration of the legal status in complex 3D situations will be investigated under the header of 3D Cadastres. 

The 4th International Workshop on 3D Cadastres addresses the following topics:
  • 3D Cadastre operational experiences (analysis, LADM based, learn from each other, discover gaps)
  • 3D Cadastre cost effective work flow for new/updated 3D parcels = 4D (part of whole chain:
    from planning/design/permit in 3D, to registration/use in 3D)
  • 3D Cadastre web-based dissemination (usability, man-machine interfaces, including mobile/AR)
  • Legal aspects for 3D Cadastre, best legal practises in various legislation systems
  • Focus on large cities, including developing countries
