Welcome to the ChinaForum web


The China Forum of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) was chartered in 2017 with the goal of addressing the OGC outreach and education needs of government, academic, research and industry organizations in China. The Forum also provides a coordination mechanism to prioritize Chinese interoperability requirements and communicate these requirements into the OGC standards process. Finally, the Forum will establish and maintain coordination with the Asia/Pacific region OGC members on issues relevant to the broader Asia/Pacific regional interest in the OGC international process.

The OGC China Forum is a grouping of the OGC members in China, set up to promote the use and understanding of open standards for geospatial software and data in China, and to influence the definition of these standards. The objectives of the China Forum are to increase the profile and awareness of geospatial interoperability standards in China, with national and local government as well as industry, academic, and research organizations, to provide a forum for the collaboration of developers and users of spatial data products and services, and to assist in the definition of a set of standards to meet the requirements of China. The Forum will assist organizations in understanding the tangible benefits of implementing geospatial interoperability standards, to identify the relevant standards, and to plan for success in realizing these benefits through use of compliant products.

The members are committed to the use of the open interoperable standards defined by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The China Forum will work with the global and Asia/Pacific regional structures of the OGC. The OGC China Forum will also strive to work with other relevant industry and government bodies to achieve its vision which is the realization of the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of integrating electronic location resources into commercial and institutional processes.

The China Forum is chaired by Peng Yue of Wuhan University. For questions or to become involved, please contact Peng Yue (pyue@whu.edu.cn).

Work Plan

The OGC China Forum is chartered to address a range of topics including, but not limited to:
