Location:

Toulouse, France

Venue:

Pierre Baudis Convention Centre
11 Espl. Compans Caffarelli

Overview of event

The November 2019 AR Summit will provide those with shared interest in AR visualization to discuss requirements and to inform and advance OGC standards that reduce barriers to data and service interoperability for widespread use of AR.

The AR Summit brings together leading experts to share world-class research and to demonstrate the benefits of interoperable geospatial standards when visualizing data in context with the real world. Participants will identify pain-points and where and how standard encodings can be advanced or implemented to better deliver digital information to people as they live, learn, play and work in the real world. The outcomes of this Summit will form part of the basis of a new OGC White Paper on AR.

Among discussion topics:

  • What new standards work may be needed to meet the requirements of current and future geospatial data owners and users for real time visualization in AR?
  • What existing standards could be extended to meet the requirements of current and future AR users?
  • What partnerships or collaborative projects can OGC members establish or expand to inform and advance interoperable AR?
  • Does there need to be a forum designated for members to discuss challenges and advance solutions on which they can collaborate?
  • How will OGC members benefit from their collaborative or parallel activities within OGC and with/in other organizations to reduce barriers to widespread interoperable AR experiences?

Participants

This event brings together thought leaders and experts in 3D geospatial data acquisition, storage, management, delivery and presentation from private and public organizations of all sizes, world-class researchers, as well as policy makers, many of whom are OGC members.

SESSION TWO – AR Users, Data and Devices: Today and Tomorrow

Duration: 1hr 30m (starting at 1:00 PM)

DESCRIPTION: This panel session is focused on the needs of AR users, both today and into the future. With a focus on the priorities of those who own and generate data which can be presented in AR view, panelists will [TBD]. Panelists each have 15 minutes to present, followed by group discussion.

  • Group discussion, Q&A, Recommendations (20 to 30 minutes)

BREAK

SESSION THREE – Challenges to Integration

Duration: 1hr 20m (starting at 2:45 PM)

DESCRIPTION: This panel session is focused on the integration requirements of AR today and into the future. With a focus on the priorities of large enterprises, government agencies, and their respective stakeholders, panelists will discuss what is needed for AR to seamlessly add visualization to existing enterprise management and IT systems. They will put forward questions or recommendations to the geospatial standards community. Of particular interest are geospatial data needs, exchange best practices, gaps and solutions. Panelists each have 15 minutes to present, followed by group discussion.

  • Group discussion, Q&A, Recommendations (20 to 30 minutes)

BREAK

SESSION FOUR – Approaches to Data and Service Interoperability

Duration: 1hr20 min

DESCRIPTION: This panel will identify and discuss approaches to creating and integrating 3D spatial data for AR (AR Cloud) services and to consider the needs identified in prior panels. This panel will share examples of work, geospatial data and web service standards/models, identify pathways forward to advance interoperable geospatial (OGC) web encodings standards for interfaces, and aim to set in motion efforts to pilot/document standards which solve market needs. Panelists each have 15 minutes to present, followed by group discussion.

  • Group discussion, Q&A, Recommendations: next steps to advance standards work, recommendations and to put forward to OGC TC on Friday. (20 minutes)
