    Bonjour Everyone,
    Apologies for cross-posting.
    All the presentations are now also available on the OGC Hydro Domain Working group website along with the meeting recordings :
    Following the workshop we finalized the set-up of the Water Quality Interoperability Experiment. I’ll send a dedicated e-mail about its kick-off in the coming days.
