At the 106th Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Technical Committee meeting at Orleans, France last week, Andreas Matheus (Secure Dimensions) and Christoph Perger (IIASA) represented LandSense and introduced the LandSense Engagement Platform. Discussions about engagement followed among domain experts from the OGC Citizen Science Domain Working Group and the Europe Forum. With participants from government, commercial organizations, NGOs, as well as academic and research organizations, the meeting was an excellent opportunity for networking and discussing recent trends in the community.
The OGC is a non-profit organization concerned with quality open standards for global geospatial communities. These standards are freely available for usage to improve sharing geospatial data across the globe. In particular, they are applied across a multitude of sectors including but not limited to Environment, Defense, Health, Agriculture, Meteorology, Sustainable Development and many more.
