Past Initiatives

Authentication IE

Results of the Auth IE are presented in this Engineering Report document and serve as guidance to both implementers and organizations deploying solutions that involve basic authentication. It is the belief of the Auth IE participants that if such a document is made available to the community more OGC implementing products will natively support authentication.

Citizen Observatory Web (COBWEB)

COBWEB will leverage the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR). Concentrating initially on the Welsh Dyfi Biosphere Reserve, we will develop a citizens’ observatory framework, and then validate the work within the context of the UK National Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and internationally, within the WNBR; specifically, within Greek and German Reserves.

Civil Works Technology Insertion, Phase 1

Technology Insertion Project. The CTI Project, sponsored by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), integrated multiple map servers, including nodes at the Corps' Mississippi Valley Division and the New Orleans District Office. Insertion Projects focus on expanding an organization’s interoperability capacity by laying the groundwork for open implementations.

Climate Challenge - Integration Plugfest - 2009

Climate Challenge Integration Plugfest (CCIP) 

"Ensuring that high-quality climate data records are collected, retained and made accessible for use by current and future generations of scientists and decision-makers is a key objective of this Plan. As a result, investment in the data management and analysis components of the system is as important as the acquisition of the data." -- Implementation Plan for the Global Observing System for Climate in Support of the UNFCC, 2004
