The OGC to co-host 2011 OGC Korea Interoperability Day

The theme for the 2011 OGC Korea Interoperability Day is “National and Regional Perspective on SDI Policy and Standards.” Many countries building spatial data infrastructures have committed to open geospatial standards because use of these standards makes it easier to access, discover, fuse and apply geospatial information and services. Attendees will learn from SDI leaders and share experiences about OGC and ISO standards and related best practices that underpin national and regional SDI policy around the world.

Please contact Dr. Kang Hae-Kyong ([email protected]) to register.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 430 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. Visit the OGC website at
