OGC Announces Earth Observation Exploitation Platform Hackathon 2018

The Hackathon builds on results from the recently concluded OGC Testbed-13 initiative, and paves the way for Tested-14 and subsequent initiatives in the context of standards based deployment and execution of applications in cloud environments. The goal of the Hackathon is to demonstrate that the Testbed-13 results, described in the Engineering Reports OGC Testbed-13: Exploitation Platform Application Package, OGC Testbed-13: Application Deployment and Execution Service, and OGC Testbed-13: Cloud, are fit for purpose.
