15 May 2014. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a call for sponsors for the 11th annual OGC location standards innovation testbed. Sponsors of OGC testbeds provide requirements, use cases, business cases and funding to support fast-paced prototyping of international spatial interoperability standards and best practices. Prospective sponsors - public and private sector organizations dependent on accurate and timely information about things in time and space - are invited to both of these OGC Testbed 11 planning events:
13 May 2014. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is pleased to announce that Pitney Bowes Inc. has raised its membership level from Technical Committee level to Principal level.
As a Principal Member, Pitney Bowes will participate in OGC's Planning Committee to explore market and technology trends relevant to OGC's mission to assure that OGC's policies and procedures remain effective and agile in a changing technology environment, and to participate in final approval decisions for all OGC standards.

The OGC Catalogue Services Standard establishes a general framework for implementing catalogue services used for publishing and discovering geospatial data and geoprocessing services. The developers of the I15 standard anticipate that this standard will be useful to stakeholders in a wide variety of domains whose spatial metadata conform to the ISO19115 Metadata standard.

1 May 2014. USGS data services get over 1 million hits per day. These data are used by a range of communities including governments at state, county, and city levels for a variety of purposes (science, decision-support, etc). As such, there is an increasing desire to determine whether the USGS data services are fully compliant with relevant OGC standards, and if there are opportunities to improve how the data is being served to the different communities.
24 April 2014 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) Members approved "OGC OpenSearch Geo and Time Extensions" as an OGC standard. This document defines an extension to the popular OpenSearch specification so that users can easily take advantage of rich geospatial and temporal search capabilities enabled by OGC standards. OGC OpenSearch Geo and Time Extensions can be downloaded from http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/opensearchgeo.
