Working Groups

Mobile Location Services DWG

The OGC Mobile Location Services (MLS) Domain Working Group (DWG) is a venue in the OGC Standards Program for location-aware mobile requirements and use cases. The MLS DWG will achieve this goal by a variety of means, including inviting industry experts to present to the DWG, issuing change requests to existing standards, identifying potential Interoperability Initiatives that advance these requirements, and defining best practices for applying OGC standards in a mobile environment.

General Description

The goal of this Working Group is to clarify the role of time as a first-class alignment concept next to space, and to strive for a handling of time which is coherent and integrated with that of space. As the issue of time in CRSs is an overarching one across all OGC, the WG will seek to include background from as many OGC stakeholder groups and WGs as possible.
