Please register for Webinar "Arctic SDP Demonstration" on Mar 15, 2017 10:00 AM EDT at:

The OGC Arctic Spatial Data Pilot (Arctic SDP) was initiated to demonstrate the diversity, richness, and value of providing geospatial data using international standards in support of spatial data infrastructures. It will show how international standards help stakeholders to gain new perspectives into social, economic, and environmental issues by providing an online network of resources that improves the sharing, use, and integration of information tied to geographic locations in North America, the Arctic, and around the world.

Organized by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), the Pilot is sponsored by US Geological Survey and Natural Resources Canada. The Pilot supports US and Canada domestic priorities around open standards and interoperability. The Pilot supports the strategic goals of the Arctic Spatial Data Infrastructure (Arctic SDI), a voluntary, multilateral cooperation between the 8 Arctic Countries' National Mapping Agencies (including USGS and NRCan).

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
