SDI-Open 2019, the pre-conference workshop on spatial data infrastructures, standards, open source and open data for geospatial will be held on 15 July 2019 in Tokyo, Japan, immediately before the 29th International Cartographic Conference. The workshop is jointly organized by our Commission on SDI and Standards, the Commission on Open Source Geospatial Technologies and the Commission on Map Production & Geoinformation Management.
Mr Reese Plews from Japan, who chairs the ISO/TC 211 Terminology Maintenance Group, will make a special contribution with a presentation about the standardization and harmonization of geospatial information terminology in ISO standards, including the maintenance of a multi-lingual register of terms.
Other presentations on the program cover topics, such as international geospatial information standards and interoperability, UN-GGIM Europe and GeoSTAT requirements for spatial data integration, academic SDIs and open science, open source components for service-oriented mapping, and supply chains.
The day is concluded with an interactive and collaborative mapping session in OpenStreetMap. Delegates should bring their own laptops! Details, including a link for registration, are available on the website of the Commission on SDI & Standards at http://sdistandards.icaci.org/.
