AGI Workshop on Open Geo Standards

AGI Workshop: Do we need an Open Standards Forum for geographic information in the UK?

What:

  • 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…

When: Monday, 12th May, 10:00 to 13:00

Where: At AGI, 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR
