Event Description

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is holding its winter Technical Committee meeting at the Esri campus in southern California, Jan 14-18. On Friday, Jan 18, Esri is making space available for an EarthCube Summit. This meeting is for outreach and engagement of the EarthCube science community with the OGC/IT standards community. We'd like to consider how OGC standards and best practices could best support and evolve with EarthCube.

AGENDA (all times PST)

8:30 - Welcome and introductions (Esri, OGC, all attendees)

2:15 - Discussion of issues and role for OGC in EarthCube governance - introduction for breakouts (D.Arctur/G.Percivall)
       · Why EarthCube must broker data, services, and semantics;
       · The role of OGC standards in EarthCube; what is missing, what are the tensions, and development priorities;

       · How OGC governance of standards lifecycle can be integrated with EarthCube governance, with concern for pace of standards evolution and differences in culture;
       · How OGC reference architecture and architecture designs developed through IEs, pilots and service testbeds can inform EarthCube architecture development;
       · OGC and EarthCube community building and dissemination: how can they cross-pollinate;
       · Use cases in OGC and EarthCube: similarities, differences, ideas for integration (and joint use cases?);
       · OGC domain working groups and EarthCube disciplinary domains: how they can work together.

2:30 - Begin afternoon break & breakout sessions
4:00 - Recap of breakouts, next steps
5:00 - adjourn
