Connecting Islands in the Internet of Things

George Percivall
Chief Architect & Executive Director - Interoperability Program

With the increasing pace of change in computing technology, islands of stability become important to reaping the benefits of geospatial information. Geospatial standards are bases for persistent developments in the complex adaptive ecosystem of geospatial computing technology. Standards are the backbone of the Geoweb and will be also for the Internet of Things (IoT). At COM.Geo 2011, the workshop, "Expanding Geoweb to An Internet of Things", explored ways in which the success of the Geoweb were a basis for the emerging Internet of Things. COM.Geo 2012 aims to continue this discussion of sensor and mobile computing for geospatial research and application. >>
