Production Partnership Management
Southampton, UK, from 7th to 9th November 2007.
Report now Available
International workshop was hosted, from 7th to 9th November 2007, by Ordnance
Survey to develop a new Standard for the management of the production
of Geographic Information (termed Production Partnership Management).
workshop was supported by a broad body of organisations: EuroGeographics,
EuroSDR, FIG and the Association of Geographic Information (UK). Attendance
was good with participants travelling from as far as Spain in the west
to India in the east and from Finland to the north and Malta to the south.
workshop created much discussion and debate on applicability and scope.
However by the end of the workshop it was accepted that the benefits demonstrated
by Production Programme Management could be gained by both data providers
and contractors across the industry. Ordnance Survey and its suppliers
were able to demonstrate clear advantages over previous arrangements.
outcome of the workshop was that the Production Partnership management
document would be redrafted as a Technical Report suitable for consideration
by the relevant ISO Technical Committee (TC211). This will be submitted
for inclusion into the body of ISO documents supporting Geographic Information.
