Sustainabile Development – UN focus on how the world will continue to develop Urban Resilience UN SD goals later this year. COBWEB at GGIM and VGI and citizen science
Epoch or Era of the world – in the same way that we classify the Jurassic period. Commissioned in 2012 by the Planet Under Pressure for a conference in London. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvgG-pxlobk Data from OGC members such as NASA, NOAA, NGA
There’s solid scientific consensus on global warming. I (we) thought the 1972 Limits to Growth findings had been discredited, but this Australian Research shows that we still face serious challenges from population and resource depletion.
Change behavior BASEDO ON FACTS!
So we can discover, assess, verify, access, aggregate, combine, reuse, and pass data from model to model…
When apps implement standards, “citizen science” creates better data and better metadata. Enhancing citizen scientists’ real value enhances their love of science.
Deveolop a model in IT space of the environment Spatial awareness at all levels, esp IOT hyperlocal geography and spatial awareness
All depend on environmental evidence: National income accounting, financial accounting, & internal business managerial accounting: B corporations Cap and trade schemes City rating systems (STAR, C40, ISO 37120, etc.) Environmental impact statements Environmental regulation Environmental taxes Human Development Index Human Security Index Triple bottom line accounting Trustable measurements & trustable, transparent, and digitally useful communication of measurements of Greenhouse gases Hazards & risk Health Physical Infrastructure Pollution Resources Wastes etc.
A domain that develops a domain-specific data encoding standard based on OGC standards and on the domain&apos;s semantic standards gives domain participants much fuller access to developments in the mainstream digital technology world: Web searches, chained computer models, full use of cloud infrastructures, Big Data, data analytics, data fusion, management tools for open data, heterogeneous sensor webs and much more . Need some discussion of the modeling and “management” of uncertainty and inherent inprecission at some point. Dotted border indicates standard is not adopted yet. (Not sure about JRC’s SoilML.)
Technology does not stay still – advancements and developments will always mean that we need to continue working together to define our.
Whereas sustainable development depends on the communication of environmental data, and Whereas such communication depends on open standards, We call upon funding agencies to support research in Developing information requirements for environmental value chains and workflows, addressing users’ needs to publish, discover, assess, access, aggregate, analyze and display environmental data and information. Analyzing the open data encodings and interfaces necessary for accomplishing these use cases in open distributed computing environments. Providing estimates of the societal and industry stakeholder value that would be realized through development of such encodings and interfaces. Also, implementing and testing candidate standards. The OGC calls upon academic, industry, foundation and government leaders to Appeal to funding agencies to support standards work that supports sustainable development. Consider the value that would accrue to their stakeholders if they were to help develop one or more of the standards and best practices suggested by the studies proposed here. Work with the appropriate standards development organizations to begin developing those standards.
