OGC Members Go Online and Interoperable at GITA Conference 02.26.2002

OGC members are getting ready to show off their interoperable solutions.

Open GIS Consortium, Inc. members are preparing to show off their interoperable solutions as part of a real-time demonstration of standards-based commercial off-the-shelf geoprocessing software at the upcoming GITA conference in Tampa, March 17-20, 2002. The demonstration will be presented on the exhibition floor and will include live demonstrations from nearly a dozen OGC members illustrating how, by using OGC Interoperability Specifications, software products can work together, or plug and play, across different vendor brands and computing platforms.

Through local area network (LAN) and dial-up connections, vendors will demonstrate how their products take advantage of OGC interfaces to optimize discovery, access, integration and application of geospatial information and applications distributed at various locations across the Internet. Autodesk, CubeWerx, Cadcorp Inc., Dawn Corporation, ESRI, GE Network Solutions, Hitachi Software Global Technology, Intergraph, IONIC Software, MapInfo, Safe Software and other vendors will illustrate a range of OpenGIS® Specifications including Web Map Server, Web Feature Server, Coordinate Transformation, Grid Coverages, Simple Features, Catalog and Geography Markup Language (GML) Specifications. Conference attendees are encouraged to visit each of the participating vendors for a chance to win a high- tech prize.

In addition to the demonstration, OGC will be active in several panels. On Tuesday, March 19, 2002, 3:13-5:00pm, Bruce Cahan of Urban Logic, Inc. will moderate a panel on the rescue and recovery that followed the disaster at New York's World Trade Center, with a major focus on how information consortia serving the needs of government, utility and other infrastructure operators can align investments in spatial information to help mitigate and respond to future disasters. On Wednesday March 20 at 1:00 pm the OGC will join the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) for a roundtable, moderated by Milo Robinson of the FGDC, focusing on the capabilities and challenges of spatial data infrastructures to support collaborating communities. At the same time, OGC's Cliff Kottman will moderate a panel on Web Mapping, highlighting the functionality and use of OGC interfaces.
