CGDI Releases Interoperability Pilot Report - Gaia Featured

Gaia3.1 is featured on the just-released GeoConnections Canada web pages describing the CGDI Interoperability Project.

The main objective of the CGDI Interoperability Pilot (IP) project was to test the feasibility of using open standards-based technology to improve the management and dissemination of CGDI data.

In particular, this project demonstrated that technology from multiple vendors based on the Open Geospatial Consortium’s Web Feature Service (WFS) standard could interoperate to provide access to the most current and authoritative data; thereby maintaining currency, avoiding versioning and minimizing duplication of the data.

A secondary objective was to develop a collaborative technical network with CGDI partners to advance the overall development of the CGDI

The CGDI IP project, led by GeoConnections, included public sector and private sector participants. Public sector participants came from Natural Resources Canada, Statistics Canada, Environment Canada, Elections Canada and government organizations in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
