S-100 Summer Update
Well it’s been a few months since GeoMaritime (June!) and I have been pleasantly surprised by the interest generated from my white paper drafted at the same time, “Adoption of Open Standards is just the start for Maritime Geospatial Information and Intelligence Exchange”.

This week I took the long road to Karsruhe in southern Germany to visit our Germany Business Partner grit GmbH, who were exhibiting at INTERGEO and we joined them on their stand. Although the show has now shrunk to two halls, boy it was still worth it. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been
