Geographic information has played a key role at a number of events this week, including the World Bank Conference on Land and Property. Steven Ramage, Head of Ordnance Survey International, updates us on the role he, and others at Ordnance Survey, played.
This has been a great week for Ordnance Survey, with a number of opportunities for us, all taking place in Washington DC. Monday’s press release broke the news that Ordnance Survey changed their membership role with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), moving to Principal level. Our Director of Products and Innovation, Peter ter Haar, formally announced our new role at the OGC Technical Committee meeting in Crystal City, Virginia, USA at the OGC 20th Anniversary meeting. I also attended this meeting in my role as Chair of the Business Value Committee at the OGC, which is open to all to attend.
