Webinar Information: 

Previous OGC GovFuture webinars, produced in cooperation with Directions Magazine, provided an overview of OGC standards for Spatial Data Infrastructures and also looked at the Dutch national program for 3D urban modeling and analysis based on the OGC CityGML Encoding Standard. Our June 12 GovFuture webinar will focus on the many ways in which OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards can help cities and regions improve quality of life for citizens.

This webinar will show how Internet-connected sensors are being used to support municipal and regional operations. Speakers will show how open standards for sensor webs multiply the potential of such sensor networks. The webinar will feature speakers who have been closely involved in multiple projects that take advantage of open standards to help enable officials and citizens to publish, discover, assess, control, access and use sensors as well as live and stored sensor data.

During this webinar, you will learn:

How the EU FP7 project, EO2HEAVEN (Earth Observation and Environmental Modelling for the Mitigation of Health Risks), funded by the European Commission, has combined environmental sensor data with other sources of data, including public health data, to assess environmental risks in Europe and Africa
How open sensor networks can be managed with respect to privacy, liability and security issues
How GovFuture membership in the OGC can help governments derive maximum value from geospatial technologies integrated with sensor webs
Speakers

Kym Watson of the Fraunhofer Institute IOSB (Germany) will give a summary of how OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards have been used in EO2HEAVEN to the benefit of policy makers, local authorities and scientists.  Watson is the coordinator of the FP7 project EO2HEAVEN and has represented EO2HEAVEN in various GEOSS meetings organized by GEO and the European Commission.

Simon Jirka, the 52°North representative to EO2HEAVEN, will talk about the technical details and challenges of sensor webs based on open standards. The 52°North group (Germany) is doing most of the SWE implementations for EO2HEAVEN.

Steven Ramage will introduce the speakers and speak briefly about the OGC, OGC's Sensor Web Enablement initiative, and OGC GovFuture membership.

Who should attend

This webinar is oriented toward local and subnational government entities worldwide that could benefit from interoperability standards for sensor networks and could also benefit from access to OGC GovFuture resources.

Overview:Standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium are becoming more and more established in the geospatial world and hold the key to build Geodata infrastructures based on interoperable components. The European Commission is encouraging the wider adoption of standards e.g. in the context of INSPIRE, the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe directive.

 

Whilst market demand for standards compliant components is steadily growing, many end users are still puzzled as to how the underlying specifications actually evolve, or what the direct benefits are in the context of their day to day business. Moreover there are questions relating to the level of real life adoption on national and European levels.

On Friday the 3rd of April 2008 you have a chance to get first hand answers to such questions at the OGC & HellasGI Greek Interoperability Day, held in Athens, Greece.

The presentation sessions include experts from OGC, governmental organizations, academics and companies.

The presentation sessions during the Interoperability Day are accompanied by selected company and project presentations in the catering and break-out area.

The language of the event will be mainly Greek but some of the presentations will be in English.

In October, 2008 OWS-6 participants began a set of parallel development activities organized around geospatial interoperability requirements in the following areas:  

- Sensor Web Enablement (SWE): geospatial rights management; interfaces for Chemical-Biological-Radiological-Nuclear (CBRN) sensors; georeferenceable imagery; harmonization of the OGC's OpenGIS® Sensor Model Language (SensorML), Geography Markup Language (GML), and Uncertainty Markup Language (UncertML) Encoding Standards, and the W3C's MathML; and the OGC's Web Notification Service (WNS) Best Practice document.  

- Geo Processing Workflow (GPW): Web services security; asynchronous workflows within and across security domains; Open Grid Forum (OGF) application of services implementing the OpenGIS Web Processing Services (WPS) Interface Standard; GML application schema development and ShapeChange enhancements; and others.  

- Decision Support Services (DSS): ISO 19117 and OpenGIS Style Layer Descriptor (SLD) Encoding Standard portrayal; 3D fly-through; indoor/outdoor 3D route services; OpenGIS Web Map Tiling Service (WMTS) interface development; and integrated clients for multiple OGC Web Service (OWS) services.  

- Aeronautical Information Management (AIM): Web standards for providing up-to-date aeronautical and weather information to pilots and aircraft while at the airport gate or en-route to its destination. To support these goals, the scope of the AIM thread had the following areas of work: Use and enhancement of the   OpenGIS® Web Feature Service (WFS) Interface Standard and Filter Encoding (FE) Encoding Standard in support of AIXM features and 4-dimensional flight trajectory queries; architecture for alert/notify of aeronautical information changes; prototype of clients for retrieval, integration and visualization of AIXM content, weather, and other aviation data; emphasizing time and spatial filtering in order to present just the right information into any given user context anytime, anywhere.  

- Compliance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE):Continued development of robust test and certification tools for the OGC Web Mapping Service (WMS) 1.3 standard.  

The webinar will demonstrate OWS-6 achievements involving Web services architecture and interoperability solutions that are documented in OGC Engineering Reports. The plan is to release the Engineering Reports as OGC public documents in July, 2009. The SWE, GPW and DSS portions of the demo will show how standards-enabled interoperability supports coordinated responses to a hypothetical disaster scenario involving an airport hostage crisis.  

OWS-6 sponsors include:  

- US Dept. of Defense Joint Program Executive Office - Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD)
- Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) GeoConnections
