*Best Practice for National SDIs*
A best practice workshop on National Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs)
is being held in Paris on 1 March. The workshop, hosted by the French
Standards body AFNOR, is being organised by the European Committee for
Standards for Geographic Information (CEN/TC 287). It will bring
together representatives from international standards-making bodies and
practitioners involved in implementing SDIs at the national level.
Speakers include Olaf Ostensen, chair of the International Standards
Committee for GI, ISO/TC 211, Mark Reichardt, President of the
OpenGeospatial Consortium (OGC), and John Herring of Oracle.
CEN/TC 287 aims to build on existing standards to provide a set of
standards for application within Europe, within the context of the EU
INSPIRE Directive and the need for national SDIs.
The workshop, which is free of charge, will be of interest to people
involved in establishing SDIs. Places are limited, and need to be
booked at www.gistandards.eu <http://www.gistandards.eu/>, where full
details of the event can be found.
