Interoperability and display of time dimension in spatial data
This roundtable aims at discussing ways to share and work with geospatial data that have a time dimension in the humanitarian context. The time dimension allows for instance to compare pre-disaster with post-disaster data, to study the spread of contagious illnesses, the movements of people in need, etc. The time dimension of geospatial also concerns the temporality of data collection (as full collection takes time, several data versions exist for a field situation at a given date). Often these two time dimensions are ignored or intermingled in IM systems and exchange protocols. Better knowledge of existing solutions should help progress towards a better IM.
Scheduled on Tuesday 30/10 between 11:30am and 1pm.
