A busy street in the historic district of Madrid, SpainOGC’s 123rd Member Meeting – our long awaited return to in-person(!) – was held in Madrid, Spain, from June 13-16, 2022. The meeting was sponsored by the EU Satellite Center (SatCen) and recognized the 30th anniversary of SatCen as an organization. More than 150 key standards leaders and regional experts from industry, academia, and government braved the heatwave to attend in person, with another 200+ virtual.
