Navigating the World of Geospatial Standards

Warning! this podcast episode is not as boring as it sounds!


While geospatial standards are boring on purpose … this episode is not .-

If you woke up this morning wanting to listen to a boring podcast episode about geospatial standards this is not for you! 


Scott Simmons ( OGC’s Chief Standards Officer )

helps us understand what a Geopose is and how it might be used, why we need GeoRSS, and something called SensorThings!  


You will also learn about the PubSub standard for the syndication of spatial data and why streaming data is not always the answer.


We also discover what the most boring geospatial standard is and when the shapefile “might” die. 


All in all, this is a light-hearted look at a very serious topic and I hope you enjoy it! 


What to know more about the Open Geospatial Consortium? this is a good place to start!
