GC invites you to its ‘Mixed Reality to the Edge’ Workshop this April in Tampa, FL --- Visionary experts from Defense, Utilities, First Responders, and more will lead panels concerning the automation of workflows that bring 3D/4D geospatial content to users at ‘the edge’

26 February 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites you to its ‘Mixed Reality to the Edge’ Workshop at SOFWERX in Tampa, FL, on April 30, 2019.

As part of OGC’s ‘Mixed Reality to the Edge’ Concept Development Study (CDS), the workshop will feature Keynote speakers and three panels in which visionary experts from Defense, Utilities, First Responders, and more will provide short position statements and lead discussion on three main topics:

  • ‘To the Edge’ - the requirements of providing 3d geospatial content and services to first responders, field deployed utility workers, warfighters, and more to ‘the edge’ where connectivity may be limited or non-existent.
  • Future of the Industry - what 3D/4D data and services will be able to make it out to ‘the edge’ and how will it benefit industry? This include the impacts of augmented reality, real-time sensor fusion and analytics, gaming, and fog computing.
  • What’s the Pipeline - how is all this geospatial content generated, curated, and delivered now, and how will it be generated, curated, and delivered in the future?

The CDS and workshop aim to investigate requirements and current and future solutions involved in the automation of workflows that curate, discover, process, integrate, and publish (disseminate) 3D/4D geospatial content to users at ‘the edge.’ The results of the workshop presentations and discussions will be integrated with the responses to the request for information and documented in an OGC Engineering Report that will be available for public distribution.

The volume and variety of spatial and temporal data sources are increasing exponentially. These sources include machine-generated data, video, photos, point cloud, sensor data, user-generated content, and traditional photogrammetric sources. The ability to find, process, integrate, analyze, and visualize this content is critical to many information communities, including disaster and emergency management, earth systems modelling, mission planning, fire-fighting logistics, and more. There is a critical requirement to provide curated and 3D/4D content - potentially fused and/or integrated from multiple sources - to mobile and field users on handheld devices.

This Workshop is being hosted by SOFWERX, a non-profit, neutral facilitation platform accelerating delivery of innovative capabilities to U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and facilitating capability refinement through exploration, experimentation and assessment of promising technology from industry, academia, labs, and non-traditional solution providers.

The OGC Website has further information on the Mixed Reality to the Edge Concept Development Study.
