Working Groups

The work of Overture happens in Working Groups that are open to all Overture members.

Schema Working Group

High-Level responsibility for developing the Overture Maps Schema and Global Entity Reference System (GERS). They work with the data teams to ensure that all data types are well represented in a unified data schema and can be identified in a consistent, stable way through GERS.

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.

Join this open map data project to ensure that Overture supports the features and use cases you care about!
