Why get certified?

Governments throughout the world are increasingly requesting solutions that are compliant with OGC standards. For example:

  • UK: Ministry of Defense Guidance on the Application of Geospatial Intelligence Standards (DEF STAN 00-102 Issue 1).
  • USA: Request for proposal by Army Geospatial Center for solutions for terrain imaging in command post and vehicles. 
  • UAE: Request for Proposal by Department of Municipal Affairs of Emirate of Abu Dhabi for contracting Services for Technology and Data Component of Municipal Spatial Solutions Infrastructure (MSSI).

If you are already implementing OGC standards in your products and web services, having those products' certified compliant is a great opportunity to improve your product and get more business. The OGC has certified hundreds of products and maintains an online database with detailed information about the products that implement and comply with OGC standards. You can register your product in our online database as soon as you have implemented an OGC standard, but the next step is to get your product implementation certified, which proves to the world that you have implemented an OGC standard correctly. The OGC Compliance webinar will explore the whys and how's of the certification process.
