Cambridge, UK, September 18, 2007: Chris Tagg, 1Spatial’s Radius Studio Product Manager, will be giving a presentation titled ‘Opening Spatial Databases for Data Quality Certification’ at the 2007 annual worldwide Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial conference (FOSS4G), held in Victoria, Canada from 24-27th September

The presentation will discuss the importance of spatial data quality and how, by embracing Open Source Technologies, the ability to assess and transform spatial data to ensure it is fit for purpose is possible, regardless of where your spatial datasets are held and the format they are in. The presentation focuses specifically on the concept of using the Feature Data Object (FDO) open source Application Programming Interface (API) for manipulating, defining, and analysing geospatial information regardless of where it is stored.

Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) 2007 conference is an annual conference by Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) that gathers developers and users of open source geo-spatial software from around the world to discuss new directions, exciting implementations, and growing business opportunities in the field of open source geo-spatial software.
