Birds of a Feather in Taiwan: GSDI 15 & OGC Technical and Planning Committee Meeting

The proverb “birds of a feather flock together” will ring true later this year when the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) Technical and Planning (T&P) Committee Meeting and 15th Global Spatial Data Infrastructure World Conference (GSDI 15) will coincide in Taiwan.

 

The OGC Technical and Planning Committee Meeting, hosted by the GIS Research Center at Feng Chia University (GIS.FCU), will take place 4-8 December 2016 in Taichung, and GSDI 15, hosted by GSDI member Taiwan Association for Disaster Prevention Industry (TADPI), is being held the week prior, 29 November – 2 December, in Taipei.

 

The purpose of OGC Technical and Planning Committee meeting is to network, knowledge share and advance the development of Open Geospatial Standards. To enjoy access to all the standards meetings on offer during the week, participants need to be an OGC member. However, the Opening & Closing plenaries, Regional Forums, Summits, Domain Working Groups and networking opportunities are open to participation by anyone who is interested in learning about and furthering the development of open geospatial standards (registration fees will apply to non-members).

 

GSDI 15 provides a venue to learn about OGC standards in action. Many of the presentations, posters, and workshops at GSDI 15 will focus on how to remove barriers for geospatial data sharing, how to improve interoperability of geospatial services, and how to engage and enable the geospatial user community. The theme of GSDI 15 is “Spatial Enablement in the Smart Homeland.” Advanced information and communications technologies, applications for spatial data, and open data policies are key to helping people prepare for extreme events and to foster opportunities for public and private sectors to create innovative products and services for Smart City and Smart Territory implementation.

 

As host of the OGC T&P Committee Meeting and a principal member of the GSDI 15 Local Organizing Committee, GIS.FCU is excited to have international experts converge in Taiwan. Says Director Dr. Jimmy Chou, “We heartily welcome you to the GSDI 15 and OGC Committee Meeting. Together we can explore new fields and extend our imagination of global future.” GIS.FCU develops and provides solutions for intelligent city planning, incorporating geospatial information technology platform to display parameters of given urban areas. With the intention of integrating geospatial information and the insistence on innovation, GIS.FCU supports the environmental decisions making by utilizing the core knowledge of GIS, GPS, and RS, making efforts in the research of technologies and the development of systems, promoting geospatial teaching and technology research in schools.
