OGC Web Services: provision and integration

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international non-profit organization driving the development of standards for geospatial and location based services. It seeks to define interoperable interfaces between applications in the field of Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

Camptocamp has been an associate member of the OGC since 2005 and has been using the standard since its creation. Our company has developed significant expertise in this field and would like to share it via this training.

This training module will allow you to get a clear understanding of existing issues and standards (and emerging) at an international level as well as to practice on the implementation of some of these standards.
