June 10, 2004: Aurora, Colo. — The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) will present “Technology Standards in Web Services,” a webcast developed to introduce attendees to the rapidly growing method of distributing spatial data and other business information, on Thursday, June 17, 2004, from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
Mountain time. The webcast will include presentations from Peter Batty, co-founder and chief technology officer of Ten Sails, Greenwood Village, Colo., and Christopher Tucker, president and chief information officer of IONIC Enterprise, Alexandria, Va. Both Batty and Tucker are GITA Annual Conference speaker award winners. The webcast will be moderated by Vince Rosales, vice president of Idea Integration, Denver, Colo.
Geospatial technology developers continue to embrace Web services as a way to efficiently deliver geospatial information. Batty’s presentation during the webcast will explain basic concepts of Web services, then progress to a discussion of examples of spatial functionality being offered through the technology, such as map display, data access, and geocoding. Tucker’s presentation will focus on application of Web services within the spatial industry, such as access to real-time data. A variety of case studies will also be introduced.
The June 17 webcast will allow anyone with an Internet connection and separate phone line to take part in the educational event by logging onto a special Web site and dialing a toll-free number.
