OGC invites any US-based person or organization interested in location standards to join us to discuss the potential launch of an OGC USA forum. The OGC USA forum will bring together thought leaders and practitioners from across the US to discuss and coordinate US-specific views and priorities in order to inform the global work of OGC, and define best-practices specific to US markets and domains.
