A series of "virtual workshops" are being organized in order to help the air quality community establish best practices and conventions for implementing data format and exchange standards (e.g., netCDF-CF and OGC WCS)in order to advance the level of interoperability among air quality information systems and projects.

The objectives of the virtual workshops are to

  • publish and expose existing services from multiple providers,
  • compare standards implementations, explore differences, address challenges and reconcile differences in implementations
  • agree on 'AQ Community' conventions and define guidance that harmonize the implementation of standards-based services

The concept of the virtual workshops is to foster interaction among the air quality community through semi-formal workshops that take advantage of remote meeting technologies and allow productive exchanges among the participants while residing in distributed physical locations.
