Welcome to the Ideas4OGC Wiki

The OGC wants to improve.

This "Ideas for OGC" (Ideas4OGC) Effort is collecting feedback, developing that feedback into a report which will be presented to the OGC Membership, OGC Officers, and OGC Staff, and hopefully leading to actions to improve the organization.

The Ideas4OGCEffort page describes the effort in more detail, including the objective, guiding principles, and process.

Topics


Note: we now have three versions of the topic lists:
  • the old approach, collected on the Ideas4OGCIssues page,
  • the table below,
  • the TopicsTable, with each topic having its own discussion page.
Hopefully we can clarify this situation at the next teleconference meeting on August 1st.

The table is built so that each topic can have its own page (or page section) to allow detailled discussion. The table is built from an initial set of topics collected by Carl Reed, as well as from topics derived from email messages, from pages on this wiki sites, and from feedback obtained during meetings. Note that this table is held in its own page so that it can be included in several different pages.

This table contains issues and discussions/suggestions collected via the Ideas 4 OGC process. The links in the issue section map to greater levels of detail , whereas the links in the discussion section either map to addtional mentions from different commentors, or contain links to references on the OGC website. As comments continue to be contributed, this table will be updated to reflect new content. New comments are welcome , as is an indication of your interest/agreement to the issues collected to date.
