24 August 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites participation in a Hydrologic Forecasting Interoperability Experiment (IE). This activity, which will begin on September 22, 2011, is designed to advance the development of WaterML 2.0 and test its use in a forecasting context with various OGC service interface standards.
OGC Press Releases
15 August 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on Version 1.1 of the OGC City Geography Markup Language (CityGML) Encoding Standard (http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/citygml).
1 August 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has completed a Water Information Concept Development Study of the application of OGC Web Services standards in the domain of water information, specifically to investigate architectures and practices for cataloguing, discovering, and accessing selected water resources data from very large numbers of distributed datasets.
29 July 2011 - The GEOSS Workshop XLIII: Sharing Climate Information and Knowledge will be held 23 September 2011 at NCAR Center Green in Boulder, Colorado. At this daylong meeting, key representatives from industry, academia, and government will provide invited talks focused on issues, tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate data, records and modeling results. The workshop will take place a week after the FOSS4G conference in Denver and immediately following the OGC TC meeting in Boulder.
27 July 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) and the OGC GML Working Group (WG) invite interested parties to attend a one-day workshop on GML 4 on September 19th in Boulder, Colorado. The workshop is organized as part of the September OGC TC meeting, but is open to non-OGC members.
26 July 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) 3D Information Management (3DIM) Working Group is hosting a second 3D Summit focused on the current impact and future opportunities for open standards to better enable 3D geospatial practices. The summit will be held Tuesday, September 20, 2011 in Boulder, Colorado in conjunction with the OGC Technical Committee Meeting.
25 July 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) Hydrology Domain Working Group and the OGC Meteorology and Oceanography Domain Working Group, both of which are Joint Working Groups of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the OGC, announced an Oceans/Meteorology/Hydrology Water Cycle Summit to be held on Wednesday 21 September 2011. The summit will be a part of the week-long OGC Technical Committee and Planning Committee Meetings, which will take place at Center Green, UCAR/NCAR, Boulder, Colorado, USA.
22 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) requests reference implementations of the OGC Sensor Planning Service (SPS) 2.0 for use in compliance testing.
The OGC Compliance Program (CITE) tests whether implementations of OGC standards comply with mandatory elements in the standards. Implementations that pass CITE tests are eligible to pay a Trademark License Fee to use the "Certified OGC Compliant" brand in packaging and marketing.
21 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate Earth Observation profile for the OGC Web Coverage Services (WCS) 2.0 standard. This profile will facilitate on-line data access to Earth observation data products.
6 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC “GeoSPARQL: A Geographic Query Language for RDF Data” Standard. The candidate OGC GeoSPARQL standard defines spatial extensions to the W3C's SPARQL protocol and RDF query language.
