What’s the Business Value of Geospatial Standards?

In November, the OGC launched their Business Value Survey.  Any and all geospatial technology users and providers are invited to complete a survey on the value of OGC standards.

The impetus for this survey came from the OGC Business Value Committee that has been tasked with three primary goals:

1. Assess the effort (costs) and outcomes (benefits) required to successfully use geospatial standards
2. Understand and articulate the advantages of developing and using OGC standards
3. Enable the wider community of stakeholders to leverage business value as a tool to foster investment and implementation

From the OGC announcement: The survey is a joint effort by two academic researchers who are OGC members and by the OGC Business Value Committee. Dr. Mu Xia at Santa Clara University and Dr. Kexin Zhao at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte developed the survey based on requirements from the OGC Business Value Committee to support their studies on standards effectiveness. The OGC Business Value Committee will use a summary of the results to help the OGC better understand the value of the OGC’s open standards and improve its programs for geospatial standards development, compliance testing and outreach.
