GIS.FCU participated OGC Testbed-14 Next Generation Technologies on artificial intelligence and 3D/AR applications.

Scott (initiative manager) was explaining the processes and resources arrangement during the kickoff meeting.

Dr. How and Chief Engineer Kuan Chih-Wei attended OGC Testbed-14 kick-off meeting from 2nd to 6th this April at the headquarter of USGS, Reston, VA. In this testbed, GIS.FCU derived funding support from sponsors and will focus on the implementation and discussion on various fields, such as machine learning, OpenAPI, CityGML(3D) and Augmented Reality. During the kickoff meeting, all threads were broken down to small team discussion, representatives from GIS.FCU were required to discuss and clarify the goals and scope for the next half year with other participants and sponsors. Furthermore, separated topic weekly teleconferences will be held for tracing the implementation progress as well as keep working on project scope discussion.

GIS.FCU participants three separated topics, machine learning, smart city(3D and AR), and Next Generation Web Service. GIS.FCU will has collaborative with 52North, Envitia and Sponsors from NGA, dstl(UK) on machine learning process and related standards interoperability. In smart city application, CityGML, ARML and ARkit(iOS) were considered to integrated for developing comprehensive process from data content, to service transition, and to client application. Testing pipeline data from Kaohsiung will be applied for demonstrating the AR application. For the next generation web services, RESTful and OpenAPI been applied for experimenting a light weight with new framework WFS 3.0.
