Welcome to the UKIAP2013 web


The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Ordnance Survey, with the support of the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), are leading the first of a series of events called the United Kingdom Interoperability Assessment Plugfest (UKIAP) 2013.

The purpose of this Plugfest is to advance the interoperability of geospatial products and services based on OGC standards within the UK geospatial information (GI) community. Specifically, four OGC standards will be tested, namely Geography Markup Language (GML), Web Map Service (WMS), Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) and Web Feature Service (WFS).

The results of the Plugfest will allow Ordnance Survey to provide best practice guidance to those who want to consume or implement geospatial web services or products based on OGC standards. UKIAP 2013 is open to commercial and open source vendors and to all GI organisations in the UK.
