W3C and OGC Advance Spatial Data on the Web

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) partnered with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) to improve the interoperability and integration of spatial data on the web. By describing geographic locations, natural features, and man-made structures, location-based consumer services and other applications can enrich their offerings. W3C and OGC’s collaboration will help spatial data publishers, providers of services that consume spatial data, and application developers reduce integration costs for spatial data on the web and establish best practices for publishing it.

“Location, as well as providing context to much of today’s online information, is vital to the emerging field of connected devices,” says Ed Parsons, Google’s geospatial technologist and co-chair of W3C’s and OGC’s Spatial Data on the Web working groups. “Through this collaboration we hope to make the understanding of geospatial knowledge a fundamental component of the Web.”
