Geospatial Standards Web Site at Natural Resources Canada

  • www.ccrs.nrcan.gc.ca/ccrs/data/standards/welcom_e.html
    Canada Centre for Remote Sensing of Natural Resources Canada is pleased to announce that the "Geospatial Standards web site - harmonizing digital geographic information" is online at: http://www.ccrs.nrcan.gc.ca/ccrs/data/standards/welcom_e.html

    CCRS is actively involved in Standards development, within the International Organization for Standardization Technical Committee 211 (ISO/TC211) on Geographic Information and Geomatics. ISO/TC211 embraces over 120 experts representing 30 countries and 10 international organizations. Under the umbrella of the Standards Council of Canada and the Canadian Advisory Committee to ISO/TC 211, Canada is involved in TC 211 work, in various working groups and projects.

    It is the goal of an ISO/TC 211 standard to communicate, in ordinary human language, the objects, relationships, behaviors, and attributes associated with the particular component at hand. Standards may specify, for geographic information, methods, tools and services for data management, acquisition, processing, analysis, access, portrayal and transfer for such data in digital/electronic form between different users, systems and locations.
