UTC/ZULU Time: A Solution for the Metaverse?

Aviation Team Educators in VR


In 1972, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) became the official standard of world time, by which nations and organizations measure and orient to around time. UTC time is not affected by Daylight Savings Time and is the successor to the 24-hour Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) standard. The UTC or ZULU (Z) time system is used in many critical references, such as weather reports (METAR, TAF) and flight plans published for daily operations. Using UTC as a time reference avoids conflicts that would arise from time zone differences.
Can the adoption of UTC time for the Metaverse be a solution to managing worldwide events that are based around time? Join this new Educators in VR team project.

The Educators in VR Aviation Team explores flight simulators, pilot training, and XR technology in the aviation and aerospace industry. The group meets regularly on AltspaceVR and other platforms as well as in Microsoft Simulator and other simulators and apps.

Educators in VR is dedicated to integrating VR, AR, and XR into education and business. We host over 600 VR free and paid events, classes, workshops, and conferences annually covering all aspects of education. Educators in VR started in AltspaceVR when educators came together to solve their common challenges, and has grown to over 2,500 members from around the world, and over a dozen Team Projects (special interest groups).
