19 public Engineering Reports resulted from the Open Geospatial Consortium's (OGC®) OGC Testbed 10, the most recent in the OGC's yearly series of major geospatial interoperability testbeds. Six of these reports focused on Open Mobility, that is, on mobile users' needs to create, access and share diverse types of location information maintained in diverse Web resources.
OGC Press Releases
24 July 2014 – The OGC seeks public comment on a candidate OGC® Moving Feature Encoding Standard. Part I of this candidate standard provides a standard way of encoding moving feature data in an XML encoding in the form of an OGC Geography Markup Language (GML) application schema. Part II provides a standard way of encoding moving feature data in a simple CSV (comma-separated value) format.
23 July 2014 – 24 public Engineering Reports resulted from the Open Geospatial Consortium's (OGC®) recently completed OGC Interoperability Testbed 10 (OWS-10), the most recent in the OGC's yearly series of major geospatial interoperability testbeds. Six of these reports focused on Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI).
21 July 2014 – The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership seeks public comment on the candidate OGC GML Application Schema - Coverages – JPEG2000 Coverage Encoding Extension (abbreviated as “GMLCOV for JPEG2000”). This candidate standard can be downloaded from http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/123
17 July 2014. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) have formed an OGC Geospatial User Feedback Standards Working Group (SWG). The purpose of this SWG will be to reach consensus on a standard way to encode users’ comments on the results those users obtain when querying spatial databases.
10 July 2014. For more than a decade the OGC Interoperability Program has used an agile testbed-based development process to deliver open standards for communicating spatial information of all kinds. The OGC is now planning OGC Testbed 11. You are invited to bring your organization’s spatial information communication requirements to this innovative process for making “where” data move easily through workflows.
3 July 2014 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has issued a call for presentations and presentation abstracts at the inaugural OGC Academic Summit 2014. The OGC Academic Summit will be held 15-16 September 2014 at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada as part of the September OGC Technical Committee Meeting.
1 July 2014 – The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has approved the Open Modelling Interface Standard Version 2 (OpenMI) as an OGC standard. This standard defines a means by which independently developed computer models of environmental processes, or indeed any processes, can exchange data as they run and hence facilitates the modelling of interacting processes.
1 July 2014. An OGC Agriculture Domain Working Group (SWG) is being chartered as an open forum for the discussion and presentation of interoperability requirements, use cases, pilots, and implementations of OGC standards in the Agriculture domain. Initiators of the new SWG seek comments from the public on the draft charter. The comment period closes on 2014-07-31. Comments should be submitted to charter-requests [at] opengeospatial.org.
