"The workshop was one of the most impressive in recent memory," according to workshop participant David Hammond, senior program manager with the U.S. Coast Guard. "It provided me with a new understanding of the interrelationships between IFC, IFD, IDM and MVD and their importance to interoperability in a geospatial context within the AECOO industry. Having close and continuing discussions with professionals from five countries was invaluable."
