Mobile OGC

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is the international leader in open geospatial standards. Through consensus process with over 500 member organisations worldwide and in collaboration with other SDOs (including OMA, W3C & ISO), OGC develops specifications and best practices for open interfaces and encodings for maximising location information. SensorThings, Geopackage, Augmented Reality (ARML), OpenGeoSMS and Moving Features are just some of the recently developed and now freely available standards. Come learn how open location standards can help you.

Taught by Steve Liang

Lead by world expert Prof Steve Liang from the University of Calgary This session will introduce the OGC SensorThings API, an OGC standard candidate that provides an open and unified way to interconnect the Internet of Things devices, data, and applications over the Web. The OGC SensorThings API is an open standard, and that means it is non-proprietary, platform-independent, and perpetual royalty-free. It builds on a rich set of proven-working and widely-adopted open standards, such as the Web protocols, REST principles, JSON and the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards. That also means the OGC SensorThings API is extensible and can be applied to not only simple but also complex use cases. More importantly web developers will find the SensorThings API is very developer-friendly yet powerful. In this tutorial, participants will learn the SensorThings data models, URL patterns, query options, simple IoT use cases and finally complex IoT use cases.

Please note this FREE master class is being held off site at the Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya, in Parc Monjuic. There are limited places for the class and prior registration is essential.
