Climate Change Integration Plugfest to be launched at FOSS4G

Sydney, Australia - January 26, 2009 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) have announced a Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP) to be launched at the FOSS4G conference, 20-23 October 2009,

The CCIP will demonstrate standards based interoperability between geospatial applications based on a Climate Change scenario.

Raj Singh, Director of Interoperability Programs at OGC, explained that, "The CCIP is a server with multiple virtual machines providing a number of different geospatial Web services that implement the OGC's open interface and encoding standards. It will be used in the coming months to demonstrate open Web-based geoprocessing at conferences, testbeds, classes and other events around the world."

Graham de Hoedt, Manager of Climate Information Services at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said, "Integration of data and applications is crucial for solving complex problems like the provision/sharing of decadal and multi-decadal climate change related data and information".

Cameron Shorter, Chair of the FOSS4G organizing committee and Systems Architect at LISAsoft said "Geospatial users regularly ask how to integrate Open Source, COTS and proprietary software. At FOSS4G, attendees will see the major geospatial applications working together and talk with implementers about what really works".

Companies or individuals interested in sponsoring or participating in the Climate Change Integration Plugfest should contact Greg Buehler < Email Contact>.

The OGC®[] is an international consortium of more than 365 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OpenGIS® Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT.

FOSS4G is the international "gathering of tribes" of open source geospatial communities, where developers and users show off their latest software and projects. The theme for 2009 is "User Driven", highlighting the power of Open Source to integrate with existing systems.

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has been created to support and build the highest-quality open source geospatial software. The foundation's goal is to encourage the use and collaborative development of community-led projects, data development and education.
