If you’re a developer working with urban 3D data, you won’t want to miss this event! Organised by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), you are invited to the OGC CityGML Hackathon in London.
Hosted by us on 11 & 12 June 2019 at the Geovation Hub in London, we will be providing a wealth of 3D city model source data to be transformed into CityGML 3.0. This will include 3D data created for the CityVerve project in Manchester.
An OGC Hackathon is a collaborative and inclusive event driven by innovative and rapid programming with minimum process and organisation constraints to support the development of new applications and open standards. Drawing on the outcomes of the OGC’s CityGML Standards Working Group, the hackathon will allow participants detailed insight about the current plans for CityGML. Please note the hackathon is open to anyone – OGC membership is not a requirement!
First issued in 2008, CityGML is a well-established and implemented OGC standard. In this hackathon, participants will experiment with and validate the current draft conceptual model for the upcoming version 3.0 of CityGML. This can either be done with source data that participants bring to hackathon themselves or with source data made available by Ordnance Survey and other data sponsors such as CityGML 2 files, mesh models and Building Information Models. Ideally, participants should have some knowledge of CityGML / OGC Geography Markup Language (GML), 3D modelling or city modelling.
We’re working with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), with the support of the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), to lead the first of a series of events called the United Kingdom Interoperability Assessment Plugfest (UKIAP) 2013.
What exactly is a Plugfest?
According to Wikipedia, a Plugfest (sometimes written as PlugFest) is an event around a certain standard where the designers of software test the interoperability of their products to other vendors.
The purpose of this Plugfest is to advance the interoperability of geospatial products and services based on OGC standards within the UK geospatial information (GI) community. Specifically, four OGC standards will be tested, namely Geography Markup Language (GML), Web Map Service (WMS), Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) and Web Feature Service (WFS).
