Tuesday, February 25th 2014


– The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and Directions Media invite government information system managers to attend a free webinar on the new OGC GeoPackage Encoding Standard, an open standard for accessing spatial data on mobile devices.  The webinar, fifth in a series of OGC GovFuture Webinars, will be held on 5 March 2014 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST (GMT-5:00 hours).

You will learn:

·      How GeoPackage APIs increase cross-platform interoperability of location apps and spatial Web services in a mobile environment

·      About lightweight mobile apps that tap into a mix of powerful cloud-based location services and data

·      How GeoPackage works in situations where Internet access is intermittent or disconnected

·      How GeoPackage is useful for applications in mobile workforce data capture, providing information during municipal operations, for example, or an emergency event

The recently approved OGC GeoPackage Encoding Standard enables easier exchange and sharing of geospatial (or location) information across different devices, applications and web services throughout the mobile world. A modern, service-oriented alternative to conventional spatial data formats, GeoPackage's SQLite-based format efficiently stores and transfers geographic vector features and image tiles. GeoPackage was developed for mobile application developers whose applications need to provide users with geospatial application services and associated data in disconnected or limited network connectivity environments, or whose applications depend on geospatial data and processing services from diverse sources.

Register for the free GeoPackage webinar here.

Speakers

·      Jeff Harrison, President, CEO and Founder, The Carbon Project

·      Frank Suykens, CTO, Luciad

The speakers will be introduced by Raj Singh, Director of Interoperability Programs, OGC.

About the OGC

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 470 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
