(Submission #370)


The Spatial Data on the Web Working Group (SDW WG) is a joint initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) aiming to bridge the geospatial technologies and the Web, thus facilitating the publication and use of spatial data across platforms and communities.

In order to achieve this, the SDW WG is working on a set of deliverables, described in the WG Charter (, covering best practices for the publication of spatial data on the Web, based on identified use cases and requirements, plus the standardisation of a set of ontologies (Time Ontology, Semantic Sensor Network Vocabulary, Coverages in Linked Data).

The workshop is meant to illustrate the work done so far, by providing an overview of the current version of the deliverables, and to collect feedback from participants on the proposed solutions and open issues.


Topic Area:  [2.9] Challenges and approaches to standardization of data and interoperability of systems.
Abstract Type:  Workshop

Additional fields

Comments:   standardisation, interoperability, spatial data on the web, best practices, W3C, OGC
