Report on Geospatial Digital Rights Management now available

Recently the GeoData Alliance has announced the publication of Geospatial Digital Rights Management. The report describes the progress that has been made in efforts to adapt the tools of digital rights management for use in the geospatial arena. Both private and public sector managerial and technical professionals who want to learn about geoDRM will find it particularly useful. The 98-page report includes an introduction to digital rights management (DRM) and why the geospatial case is unique, and it places GeoDRM in a technical and policy context. The report also documents the accomplishments of a cooperative agreement executed by the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC), the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) and the GeoData Alliance. The GeoData Alliance is an innovative, non-profit organization open to all individuals and institutions committed to using geographic information to improve the health of our communities, our economies, and the Earth. Its purpose is to foster trusted and inclusive processes to enable the creation, effective and equitable flow, and beneficial use of geographic information.
