Call for Sponsors of Testbed-17: Collaborate and Innovate to Advance the Power of Location
Join with geospatial experts to solve your organization’s technology challenges and shape the future of location technologies
29 June 2020: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is currently preparing its next major Innovation Initiative, Testbed-17, which builds upon the success and outcomes of Testbed-15 and Testbed-16, and other IP initiatives.
