  • From Josh Lieberman post-telecon: Agriculture Summit at OGC Delft TC "will be a half-day session open to OGC members and anyone else who would like to attend, looking at geospatial and geosemantic interoperability issues in the emerging field of agricultural data analytics. Some of the topics will include standards work on soils, weather, and water; crop data exchange protocols; agricultural sensor observations; and agricultural machinery telematics."
