AGI Workshop: Do we need an Open Standards Forum for geographic information in the UK?
- Do you or your organisation use standards for geographic information?
- Are you aware what standards exist?
- Are you sure of how and when to apply standards?
- Do you need to know more?
- Are you confused by all the standards that exist?
- Have you identified gaps in standards?
If the answer to any of the above is “Yes” then here is a chance to be in at the beginning of the creation of a forum to enable the GI community to share information, promote the use of the standards, influence their development, etc…
