USA: Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has issued the final reminder for participation in its Business Benefits of Using OGC Standards Survey. The information collected will help OGC understand its standards effectiveness and improve its programmes. Researchers Mu Xia, from the University of Illinois, and Kexin Zhao, from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, have developed the survey in conjunction with OGC. The survey, which should take 15-20 minutes to complete, reportedly will provide input to research on standards development organisations and standards effectiveness, and also help the consortium improve its ability to address geospatial interoperability needs.
The survey closes on January 31, 2009.
