AfriGIS celebrates another first

Aug 15 2015

AfriGIS recently announced that it has joined the ranks of Google®, Oracle® and Intergraph® in becoming a member of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).


The OGC is an international industry consortium of more than 500 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface standards.


The OGC strives to serve as a global forum for the collaboration of developers and users of spatial data products and services, and to advance the development of international standards for geospatial interoperability.


OGC standards are developed in a unique consensus process supported by the OGC’s industry, government and academic members. Through its Standards Program, Interoperability Program, Compliance Program and Communications & Outreach Program, the OGC develops, releases and promotes open standards for spatial processing.


AfriGIS actively supports the OGC initiatives and celebrates another first as the only private company to be an OGC associate member on the African continent.
