Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group

The mission of the Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group is to develop and maintain vocabularies and best practices that encourage better sharing of spatial data on the Web; and identify areas where standards should be developed jointly by both W3C and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). Learn more about the goals, scope, and deliverables.

The Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group is a W3C entity matched by a sub-committee of OGC's Technical Committee. Collectively, the two comprise the Joint W3C/OGC Organizing Committee, the JWOC.

The Chairs of the Interest Group are Linda van den Brink (Geonovum) and Jeremy Tandy (Met Office). The W3C Team Contact for the Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group is François Daoust.

Interest Group calls are usually on Wednesdays at 20:00 UTC (see above table for exact schedule). Calls are done through WebEx. To avoid abuse of the WebEx system, WebEx coordinates should not be shared in public space. Please see the WebEx info page (only accessible to IG participants) for details, and get in touch with François Daoust if you cannot access that page and need to attend a call.

Deliverables of W3C/OGC Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group

Note: Some of the deliverables have been initially developed by the Spatial Data on the Web Working Group, of which the Interest Group is the successor.
