Dangermond Presents “Making a Difference” Award to David Schell, OGC founder #esrifedcon

At the Esri Federal GIS Conference, Jack Dangermond opened the conference by presenting the "Making a Difference" award to David Schell, the founder of the Open Geospatial Consoritum.

"The reason I started OGC was that I thought it was more important to make a difference than to make a product. Interestingly, right from the very beginning when Jack and I first met I knew that we would be making a difference for many decades," said Schell.

Schell commented that the OGC was concerned more with communication and integration and that that was complimentary to what Esri was doing in making products.

Schell is retiring from the board of the OGC and will enter academia.
