   * Workshop Lead: Christine Eggers ESRI


It is no secret that exposing geospatial datasets as web services makes them easier for users to discover and use. Web services allow users to access and then combine different datasets for their own purposes and in their own map viewers, often in creative ways. Even so, the standards, organizational policies, and technical aspects of how to move datasets to web services can be daunting. This workshop investigates the value of web services, how to expose datasets as standards-based web services, and tools that enable users to discover web-accessible data resources.

Intended Audience: All, particularly organizations that produce or manage geospatial datasets.
