Schema Working Group
Data Working Group
The core of Overture’s mission is in map data building and maintenance. The work is subdivided into Task Forces which focus on different aspects of map data. All are responsible for developing a strategy based on the needs of the members, establishing priorities and budgets, and executing those strategies. These are engineering-heavy groups but also involve product managers, project managers, and other functions.
