Bart Adams, Founder and CTO at, comments: OGC is a unique community that is committed to improving access to geospatial information. Over the past decades, we have seen a maturation of location tracking technologies for outdoor and indoor tracking. These technologies generate vast volumes of data. Data-driven geospatial algorithms, including AI, are now the key to handle these big location data sets for insight generation. Interoperable APIs can then unlock the obtained insights across industries. As AI is a key innovation topic for the OGC, we are thrilled to contribute and are looking forward to making the most of the collaboration.

Scott Simmons, OGC's Chief Standards Officer: OGC is very pleased to have join our membership and contribute their expertise to improving the way we all use location information. The focus of on analysis of data in both space and time aligns perfectly with OGC's expertise and our continued exploration on how to best use Artificial Intelligence with location data in numerous domains, such as maritime, aviation, autonomous navigation, and more.
