10 April 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is pleased to announce that, after a successful geospatial track at last year’s ApacheCon North America, OGC will once again lead a conference track concerning geospatial data and processing at ApacheConNA 2019, to be held in Las Vegas on September 9-12. Developers are invited to propose to present, and interested organizations are welcome to sponsor the track.
“We are delighted to collaborate once again with the Open Geospatial Consortium on the Geospatial Track at ApacheCon,” said Rich Bowen, ASF Vice President Conferences and Event Chair for ApacheCon North America. “OGC’s involvement reflects both the interest and participation in a growing number of Apache projects. We are happy to make ApacheCon the home for meaningful, community-curated content for the greater geospatial community.”
The single-day Geospatial Track at ApacheConNA 2019 will occur on Monday, 9th September, and provide an opportunity for participants to learn about, discuss, and see examples of the implementation of geospatial information across Apache projects.
Multiple Apache projects include geospatial information and processing. The Geospatial Track will consider a range of geospatial implementations ranging from location as an attribute, to projects that perform spatial analytics, including handling of...
