OGC and ODA Announce Strategic Partnership

Cooperation on open geospatial standards

 

Scottsdale, AZ: September 16th, 2020 – Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), the international consortium driving the creation and adoption of open geospatial standards, and Open Design Alliance (ODA), the leading provider of CAD and BIM interoperability solutions, announced today a strategic partnership to promote and strengthen the use of open standards for the location and geospatial industries.

 

OGC is a not-for-profit international standards organization founded in 1994, and comprised of industry, government and academic members dedicated to advancing interoperability among IT systems that process geo-referenced information.

 

ODA is a not-for-profit technology consortium that builds Software Development Kits (SDKs) for popular CAD and BIM standards including IFC, .dwg, and Autodesk® Revit® files. ODA software is used by more than 1000 companies world-wide, and its solutions are a recognized standard in the industry.

 

OGC’s leadership in creating open standards forms a natural synergy with ODA’s expertise in standards implementation. The partnership between OGC and ODA is intended to develop and strengthen this synergy to the benefit of both organizations, and to the broader community.

 

“OGC and ODA have complementary efforts to achieve data interoperability,” said Nadine Alameh, OGC CEO. “OGC is excited to work with ODA to help our respective members and the larger user community do more with BIM, CAD, and Geospatial data.”

 

“ODA is very pleased to be partnering with OGC,” said Neil Peterson, ODA President. “ODA and OGC have a significant number of common members, and this cooperation will help to fast-track projects that are of key interest to both organizations.”
