Washington, DC – June 3, 2014 Big Data pose special challenges on geo data, touching upon all the V keywords, like Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Veracity. Simultaneously, demands are massively increasing, from the traditional file download to allowing customers to build their own spatio-temporal product on the fly.
This seminar introduces to the key Big Geo Data standards of OGC and ISO. It explains their mechanics, use, and scalability capabilities by way of many illustrations as well as hands-on test services. An outlook will be given to current discussions and future directions in several relevant standardization bodies.
The seminar is suitable for both beginners with some background in geo Web services, as well as for experts and implementers.
List of topics to be covered
- The course will be organized as follows, with ample opportunity for interaction:
- Big Data: information categories; classification attempts by standardization bodies; challenges; select use cases from 1D – 4D geo services.
- OGC standards: the data: coverages; the services: WCS, WCPS, WPS, SWE, WMS, etc.;
- Further standardization activities: ISO, RDA, etc.
- Architectural issues: How to build scalable services; REST and the rest; requests versus queries; adding in temporal dimensions; Map-Reduce or Array Databases or something com-pletely different?
- Wrap-Up: data & service concepts synopsis; ongoing discussions in standardization bodies; possible future directions; open discussion and reflection

About COM.* Conference
COM.* 2014 has expanded to three more emerging tech areas, Big Data, driverless cars, and geospatial computing. COM.Geo has been playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial research and application since it was initiated 5 years ago.
This year, COM.* conferences and summits will focus on COM.BigData 2014, COM.DriverelessCar 2014, and COM.Geo 2014. All three will take place in the same time frame and conference center in August in Washington DC, USA as well as COM.* online Virtual Conference center.
Several leading keynotes and insightful panels from U.S. federal government and world-class industries and universities will be open to all the attendees of the three conferences and summits. There will be a great opportunity for everyone to learn trends, share visions, exchange ideas, discuss details, and expand networking circles.
