OGC Press Releases
At the September meeting of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) Technical Committee in Orlando, Florida, USA, Stan Tillman received the OGC’s prestigious Kenneth D. Gardels Award. The Gardels Award is awarded each year to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to advance OGC's vision of geospatial information fully integrated into the world's information systems.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on its candidate Moving Features Access Standard.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is calling for public participation in its newly-established Land Administration Domain Working Group (Land Admin DWG).
Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) recently approved the release of 7 draft public OGC Engineering Reports, products of the recently completed OGC Interoperability Testbed 12 Aviation Thread. Testbed 12’s Aviation Thread was sponsored by FAA and Eurocontrol, and is the most recent in the OGC's long series of major geospatial interoperability initiatives.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is considering start of a new work item for a Community Standard: 3D Tiles. The public is requested to comment on this work item proposal.
3D Tiles is a publicly available open specification for streaming massive heterogeneous 3D geospatial datasets for visualization. To expand on existing 2D and 2.5D streaming of map tiles and terrain, 3D Tiles support 3D models such as buildings (exterior and interior), trees, point clouds, TIN terrain, and vector data use cases.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) invites you to attend its 100th Technical and Planning Committee Meeting, which will be sponsored by CAE and held at the University of Central Florida from September 19-23, 2016.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the draft OGC Spectrum Model Language Domain Working Group (SpectrumML DWG) Charter.
The OGC SpectrumML DWG Charter defines the role of a group of OGC members representing the interests of multiple communities that would benefit from having a common international standard data model and derived encoding(s) for environmental electromagnetic fields. Those communities include the remote sensing, electromagnetic compatibility, wireless communications communities, and others.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has announced its Location Powers: Big Data workshop, occurring on Tuesday 20th September in Orlando, Florida.
The Location Powers: Big Data workshop will bring together leading developers of geospatial big data systems. This is an opportunity for participants to hear about the latest developments in the field, as well as contribute to the collective discussion concerning advancing the use of big data computing techniques being applied to geospatial data.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has released the results of the CityGML Quality Interoperability Experiment (QIE) as a public Engineering Report.
Carried out as a joint activity between the OGC, SIG3D and EuroSDR, the CityGML QIE, defined data quality requirements for a general CityGML data specification, created recommended implementation guidance for CityGML encoded 3D data, and provided a suite of tools to carry out quality assurance on CityGML data.
