Throughout the week of 27 November 2017 New Zealand is hosting the world’s pinnacle standards-setting body for geographic information and services. ISO standards enable location data to be consistently conceived, modelled, described, discovered, accessed, shared, and trustfully re-used.
The International Organisation for Standardisation’s (ISO) Technical Committee 211 (TC211) is convening its 45th Plenary Meeting in Wellington. The plenary is preceded by workshops and project meetings which will engage visiting experts from more than 20 countries.
This is the first time TC211 has convened in NZ. TC211’s visit has been coordinated with a meeting of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) which is also meeting in NZ for the first time. OGC’s meeting will be held in Palmerston North in the week beginning 4 December.
Please be invited to register for this special opportunity on Wednesday 29th Nov. This Outreach Seminar has been organised to create an opportunity for NZ and Australian information communities to meet and exchange ideas with the visiting experts.
The programme includes examples of some significant local, regional and international initiatives which demonstrate various aspects of contemporary geographic information standards in action and their benefits.
Places are limited, so please register by 24 November to confirm your seat.
