Spatial Data on the Web Working Group

The mission of the Spatial Data on the Web Working Group is to develop and maintain vocabularies and best practices that encourage better sharing of spatial data on the Web; and identify areas where standards should be developed jointly by both W3C and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). Learn more about the goals, scope, and deliverables.

The Spatial Data on the Web Working Group is a W3C entity matched by a sub-committee of OGC's Technical Committee. Collectively, the two comprise the Joint W3C/OGC Organizing Committee, the JWOC.

The Chairs of the Working Group are Linda van den Brink (Geonovum) and Jeremy Tandy (Met Office). The W3C Team Contact for the Spatial Data on the Web Working Group is Bert Bos.

Meetings

The group holds a regular teleconference every four weeks on Thursdays 13:00-14:00 UTC. See W3C SDW calendar for meeting details.

Deliverables of W3C/OGC Spatial Data on the Web Working Group

Note: Some of the deliverables have been initially developed by the original Spatial Data on the Web Working Group, or by its successor, the Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group.
