Geo Rights Management (GeoRM) DWG

NOTE: This group was formerly the Geospatial Digital Rights Management (GeoDRM) Working Group.

 

Mission

A great deal of work has been done in the area of data ownership and rights management. This work is of interest to the Geospatial community in that many geospatial data providers need to manage or control who has access ...

Domain Working Groups

Domain Working Groups (DWG or WG) provide a forum for discussion of key interoperability requirements and issues, discussion and review of implementation specifications, and presentations on key technology areas relevant to solving geospatial interoperability issues.

Coordinate Reference System DWG

Chair(s):

Ryden, Keith (Esri)
Minor, Victor (Blue Marble Geographics)
Hedley, Mark (UK Met Office)

Group Description:

The Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Domain Working Group develops strategies for encoding of earth coordinate reference systems and transformations between coordinate reference systems. Also addresses units of measure. The group has worked consistanty on the joint OGC-ISO Document 19111 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates and on ISO 19162 Well Known Text for Coordinate Reference Systems.

Sensor Web Enablement DWG

Chair(s):

Botts, Mike (Botts Innovative Research)

Group Description:

Introduction

OGC members are specifying interoperability interfaces and metadata encodings that enable real time integration of heterogeneous sensor webs into the information infrastructure. Developers will use these specifications in creating applications, platforms, and products involving Web-connected devices such as flood gauges, air pollution monitors, stress gauges on bridges, mobile heart monitors, Webcams, and robots as well as space and airborne earth imaging devices.
