Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, selected KLC participants will work collaboratively to extend and "ruggedize" existing standards into a robust and complete interoperability framework for implementing multi-vendor enterprise, as well as enterprise-to-enterprise, solutions in government and business.

Participants will work in the following areas:

  • Common Architecture: Develop Geography Markup Language (GML) Application Schemas for selected layers of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Framework Data Layers.
  • Web Services: Deploy a reference implementation composed of OGC(TM) specification components for Web Map Services, Web Feature Services, Web Coverage Services, and Catalog Services.

OGC Kentucky Landscape Census Pilot Project Request For Quotation and Call For Participation

This call seeks technology developers interested in an Interoperability Initiative to develop and deploy a reference implementation of OGC-based services at the state level in the U.S. The OGC Kentucky Landscape Census (KLC) Pilot Project advances OGC Web Services (OWS), the set of OpenGIS® Specifications that comprise the interoperability framework for the emerging "Spatial Web." The implementation will become the basis for the Commonwealth's contribution to the U.S. Geological Survey's National Map.

Proposals are due by November 18, 2004.
