Wayland, Mass., 15 March, 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) seeks public comment on the draft OGC Sensor Planning Service (SPS) Interface Standard 2.0. This draft standard specifies interfaces for tasking a sensor. The standard is designed to support queries that have the following purposes: to determine the feasibility of a sensor tasking request; to submit such a request; to inquire about the status of such a request; to update or cancel such a request; and to request information about other OGC Web services that provide access to the data collected by the requested task.

The proposed OGC SPS 2.0 standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/64 .  The public comment period closes on 14 April, 2010.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 390 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
