terrestris is now member of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) as of the beginning of May 2011. The OGC is the standardising body when it comes to geodata and geodata services. After some deliberation it was a logical step for us, since the projects that terrestris is doing increasingly take place in an international and collaborative environment. As a member terrestris now has the opportunity to partake in the discussion processes and find out first-hand what direction new standards are taking. This will enrich our daily work and ultimately benefit our customers.
