Through live presentations, panel discussions, and pre-recorded videos, workshop participants discussed requirements and proposals for Web platform maps.
As an outcome of the workshop, participants seek to initiate a cross-community (W3C, OGC among others) working group that will define a roadmap to specify and implement native Web maps. The ongoing work was initiated and has been incubated in the W3C Maps for HTML Community Group since late 2014. Anyone interested in participating in the Maps for the Web discussions should join the free W3C Community Group.
W3C thanks our sponsor, Natural Resources Canada, the Program Committee, our co-host, the Open Geospatial Consortium, and all the participants for making this event a success. Please read more in the W3C Blog post.
