The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC(R)) announces that PCI Geomatics has upgraded their OGC membership level to Strategic membership. PCI Geomatics’ decision to upgrade underscores its commitment to geospatial interoperability, the geospatial industry, and the OGC. PCI Geomatics (as PCI Remote Sensing) was one of the eight charter members of OGC at its founding in 1994.
Strategic Membership is the highest level of OGC membership. To help advance OGC program objectives, Strategic Members provide significant resources in the form of funding and in-kind resources. As a Strategic Member, PCI Geomatics will contribute to the OGC process at a high level to help realize the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of integrating sophisticated but easy-to-use geospatial technology into consumer, commercial and institutional activities worldwide.
“Our original enthusiasm for the OGC vision of interoperability turns out to have been well-founded,” said Dr. Robert Moses, President and CEO of PCI Geomatics, “and the business case for participation and leadership just keeps improving. We look forward to playing a larger role in the collaborative effort to expand the global consensus standards platform for a growing industry.”
Mark Reichardt, OGC President and CEO of the OGC, comments, “We are extremely fortunate to have PCI Geomatics as a Strategic Member of the Consortium. In addition to their continued commitment to advancing OGC standards, PCI will mobilize significant energy and resources to help OGC further globalize its standards and programs in nations and regions where the OGC is underrepresented.”
