In Frankfurt, at the InterGEO event, the World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to pool resources for supporting the power of geospatial and location-based tools in the worldwide industries, government, and markets. The location is currently being used as a powerful tool that can help make decisions from the public as well as private sector point of view but it has yet to be implemented. The WGIC is at the moment focusing on offering a unique industry voice for the changing policies as well as enhancing the power of geospatial technologies and related information to be leveraged on a wide-range across the globe.

The Global geospatial market has been helped by the OGC and others to acquire various geospatial technologies, analytics, and data sources that can be effortlessly shared and included. The collaboration of collaboration OGC plus WGIC is definitely going to expand the mission so as to help benefit locations features in the industry and government insight as well as decision-making. The development in the geospatial analytics, information, and tools are still unknown to many markets to date. The open international standards framework will help use the tools appropriately have been claimed by OGC. The geospatial industries along with WGIC will help encourage their valued work to be spread across the industry and government communities. The WGIC and OGC basically want all the economic industries across the world to integrate the geospatial skills in their business processes so as to advance not only the market but also the specific industries.

The OGC currently top on the chart in geospatial standards development organization as it has built a realistic process of commitment with key industries. Thus, the WGIC’s plan of joining hands with OGC will only broaden the geospatial knowledge in the global economy and society. The collaborations will facilitate the key geospatial technical and policy opportunities plus challenges during the interoperability.
