This will be the third in a series of 3D geospatial modeling & simulation (M&S)-related meetings co-sponsored by USGIF, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO). The purpose of this series is to establish a continuous learning culture across the geospatial and M&S domains that will lead to greater interoperability and progress toward our vision of a global model of the Earth. The focus of this summit is: to review recent advancements made with regard to interoperability; to discuss the challenges that lay ahead; and to provide details on a roadmap of current and planned initiatives designed to stimulate robust experimentation across the community regarding new levels of interoperability.
