At this event: Learn more about the recently announced OGC GeoPackage standard and join us at the free GeoPackage workshop.

Are you looking for ways to improve how you use location information?

  • Provide the freshest and most contextually relevant data
  • Make information access rapid, incremental
  • Communicate position quickly, inexpensively including when roaming
  • Offer fewer LBS apps that provide greater data depth and reliability
  • Support for indoor as well as outdoor position

Are your location information tools efficient in terms of data access and management?

  • Lower costs of creating and maintaining location based data sets
  • Keep maps and all geodata current
  • Mix data sets while keeping intuitive and consistent symbols
  • Accomodate diverse mobile platforms with consistent behaviors
  • Use best available position accuracy given device sensors
  • User open APIs to reduce overhead between LBS tools

The Open Geospatial Consortium invites you to our 2nd open standards for mobile event. Once again, it is hosted at the stunning Institut Cartogràfic I Geològic de Catalunya building. Location information is now pervasive across many domains and industries.

Join us to find out how we and our alliance partners work together to develop the necessary standards to help you get the most out of location. On the day you will hear from not only OGC, but OMA, W3C and the Small Cell Forum. Following the morning's presentations there will be the opportunity to join one of three workshops with the world's leading experts who have developed the Geopackage, IndoorGML and ARML.
