The India Forum of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) was chartered in July 2009 to provide government, academic, research and industry organizations in India with opportunities to learn about and discuss issues related to interoperability of geographic information involving OGC standards. The Forum seeks to promote interoperability and create synergy between the various producers and users of geographic information and geomatics products and services in India. The Forum also provides a way for Indian organizations to coordinate their efforts to ensure that Indian requirements are addressed by the international standards of the OGC.
Dr. Ashok Kaushal, Managing Director, PCI Geomatics (India), author of the India Forum charter, said, "Forum members want to work together in India to maximize the benefits of using open standards in dealing with geospatial information. This is important not only for the ICT industry here, but it is also important as India advances in areas such as transportation, energy, agriculture, defense and natural resource management."
The members of the India Forum of the OGC invite other Indian organizations to join the Forum. Agencies can learn about the offerings of Indian companies and pool their interoperability requirements in standards development efforts; companies can meet potential customers and partners; universities and research centers can engage with government and industry and the OGC's active worldwide interoperability research community; and all can explore together ways to take advantage of the OGC standards that are revolutionizing the geospatial industry.
