OGC is a renowned international organization that sets the standards for spatial information. In recent years, the OGC has focused on integrating different web service standards by building upon the foundation of OpenAPI. The GIS Research Center has actively participated in OGC-related technical meetings and innovative research projects, sharing and exchanging its accomplishments in standard implementation and applications in spatial information. This not only promotes knowledge sharing and technological advancement but also helps the center stay up-to-date with international development trends, new technologies, and innovative ideas, which helps it maintain its leading position in spatial information technology.

Attending the OGC TC Meeting was a great opportunity to discuss and share ideas with experts from various countries, including the United States, Japan, Canada, and Germany. This not only helps in promoting the advancement of technology and its applications but also encourages more cooperation and solutions for global climate change and natural disaster response. We hope this dialogue will be the starting point for future cross-border cooperation projects that will collectively accelerate the progress and application of spatial information technology worldwide and contribute towards the sustainable development of our planet.
