17 December 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the OGC® Coverage Implementation Schema(abbreviated as “CIS”). This candidate OGC Standard complements the OGC Abstract Topic 6 Standard (which is identical to ISO 19123) with a concrete coverage model whose implementations are conformance testable and, hence, are interoperable. ISO has expressed interest to adopt CIS 1.1 as ISO 19123-2.

OGC announces standard that makes complex environmental data easier to use in GIS

15 December 2015 - The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has approved the OGC CF-netCDF 3.0 encoding using GML Coverage Application Schema, an extension to the OGC CF-netCDF 3.0 encoding standard.

The OGC CF-netCDF 3.0 encoding standard has emerged as a widely used and well supported data model and encoding for domains such as atmospheric science, oceanography, climatology, meteorology, and hydrology. It supports multi-dimensional data representing space and time-varying phenomena.

Responses to the OGC Testbed 12 Aviation thread must still be received before 5:00 pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on 20 November 2015. Responses to the other six threads, however, are now due before 5:00 pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on 11 December 2015.

OGC® seeks participants for international GeoPackage Elevation Data Interoperability Experiment

Release Date: 
2015-11-03
Content: 

3 November 2015. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) announces a Call for Participation (CFP) in the OGC GeoPackage (GPKG) Elevation Extension Interoperability Experiment (GPKG-EE IE).

The OGC GeoPackage Standards Working Group (SWG) has identified a need to store tiled gridded elevation data in a GeoPackage. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information. The SWG has developed a candidate extension to the GeoPackage Encoding Standard to support elevation data.

OGC seeks public comment on candidate 3D Portrayal Service Standard

Release Date: 
2015-10-28
Content: 

The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC 3D Portrayal Service (3DPS) Standard.

In the last decade, progress in airborne and mobile laser scanning and photogrammetric methods has brought an explosion of terrain data and detailed 3D models of the built environment. The 3d models are often maintained in proprietary environments.

OGC® seeks comment on the OGC OWS Context GeoJSON Encoding Standard

Release Date: 
2015-10-07
Content: 

7 October 2015. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the OGC OWS Context GeoJSON Encoding candidate standard. This candidate standard is intended to increase overall use of geospatial information by providing additional geospatial capabilities for the large and growing community of GeoJSON developers. The candidate standard provides flexible alternatives for interoperation and integration of RESTful and service-oriented geoprocessing resources.
