OGC Press Releases
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is calling for public participation in its newly-established Marine Domain Working Group (Marine DWG).
The Marine DWG was established to address applicability of the OGC standards baseline with regards to marine geospatial data, and to ensure knowledge is exchanged effectively between the relevant standards organizations, the OGC membership, and the broader geospatial community.
12 July 2016. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) announces the release of version 3.0 of the OGC Catalogue Services standard.

21 April 2016. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for an OGC Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Standards Working Group (SWG).
The purpose of the OGC SWG is to revise Abstract Specification Topic 2 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates to the state of an adopted OGC standard and an identical ISO International Standard. This will be achieved by processing comments received during the public comment period and ensuring that the standard is consistent with OGC business plans.
