systEmic Standardisation apPRoach to Empower Smart citieS and cOmmunities

Over the next decade, the way we live, work and use energy, transportation and other city resources and services will change significantly thanks to a range of innovative ‘Smart City’ solutions. A Smart City integrates physical, digital and human systems to deliver a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive future for its citizens. Many of these innovative solutions will be based on sophisticated information and communication technologies.

Testbed 14

Testbed 14 Sponsors will document initiative requirements, which will be described in detail in a Call for Participation (CFP). Participants will be selected to develop corresponding prototype deliverables that implement new / updated prototype interface and encoding specifications, which will be used to recommend new OGC standards or revisions to existing OGC standards, as well as best practices for using these standards.

USGS Interoperability Assessment

The rigorous testing of USGS web services performed in the Interoperability Assessment Project helped us identify and correct shortcomings of our implementation of OGC standards, and highlighted areas in which to improve the user experience with our web services.  As a result of the project, our users can include the improved USGS services more easily in their decisions making and operational activities.
