Recent Progress


Next Generation defines PODS 7.0 design and documents the data interchange. Progress is regularly reported at PODS Conferences as well as via quarterly free webinars. To expedite execution of this effort, PODS has been working with a contractor for the technical work, Image Matters, LLC

Kurt Buehler, President of Image Matters, is a recognized leader, with industry expertise in standards development, data modeling and creation of data standards. Mr. Buehler serves as primary consultant to PODS. Their experts have created similar work for the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and have successfully led or contributed to inoperability projects such as Geospatial Interoperability Framework (FEMA), and the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).
