Welcome to the GEO Standards and Interoperability Forum (SIF)

The SIF was formed to facilitate the interchange of information and the development of recommendations for standards and interoperability in GEOSS. The SIF also oversees a key component of the GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI), the Standards and Interoperability Registry (SIR). The purpose of the SIF is to provide advice, expertise and impartial guidance on issues relating to standards and interoperability for GEOSS. Our primary goal is to enable ever greater degrees of interoperability among GEOSS-contributed resources through facilitation, technical analysis, advocacy and education. The SIF is composed of experts nominated by GEO Members and Participating Organizations, and supported by subject matter experts from around the globe.

More information on the GEOSS registries can be found at the GEOSS Resources Registry System. The SIF also manages the development and publication of a series of GEOSS Tutorials. These tutorials are meant to assist GEOSS users and GEOSS providers in understanding how to publish, register, discover, access, and use GEOSS resources. The tutorials are published at the GEOSS Best Practices Wiki. More information on the SIF can be found at the Standards and Interoperability Registry home.

One hour meetings are held every other Friday at 9:30am US Eastern Time (14:30 UTC for EST, 13:30 UTC for EDT). Check with co-chairs for next meeting time, as the schedule can change due to conferences and other events. Webcast/telecons are our main method of communication.
