  Metaverse Special Session g2m
As momentum is building for the metaverse, so is the momentum for standards to support a vision of an open 4D fully immersive ecosystem that links the real and the virtual worlds. This is the third iteration of the OGC membership organizing a session around Geo standards for the Metaverse while the Geo For Metaverse working group is being formalized. The Working Group is envisioned to be the main liaison between OGC and the Metaverse community and represent OGC in the recently formed Metaverse Standards Forum - bringing all the geospatial's community work on 3D (3D Tiles/I3S/3D Portrayal/ CityGML/ WTMS/GeoVolumes API/etc) , modeling & simulation (CDB/IndoorGML/InfraGML/PipelineML/ARML/GeoPose/etc), OGC APIs, and more!
