W3C Workshop Report: Maps for the Web

February 8th, 2021

Maps of Montreal, past, present, and future. W3C is pleased to announce a report from the W3C/OGC Joint Workshop Series on Maps for the Web, held in September & October, 2020.

Through live presentations, panel discussions, and pre-recorded videos, workshop participants discussed requirements and proposals for Web platform maps.

As an outcome of the workshop, participants seek to initiate a cross-community (W3C, OGC among others) working group that will define a roadmap to specify and implement native Web maps. The ongoing work was initiated and has been incubated in the ​W3C Maps for HTML Community Group​ since late 2014. Anyone interested in participating in the Maps for the Web discussions should join the free W3C Community Group.

W3C thanks our sponsor, Natural Resources Canada, the ​Program Committee​, our co-host, the Open Geospatial Consortium, and all the participants for making this event a success. Please read more in the W3C Blog post.
