Agencies from all levels of government, on both sides of the U.S./Canada border, came together in the CIPI-1.1 pilot project to explore emergency management data sharing.
The sponsors of CIPI-1.1 were: Autodesk, BAE SYSTEMS, Intergraph, Lockheed Martin, the Federal Emergency Management (FEMA), the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), GeoConnections/Natural Resources Canada, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and others.
The Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative Phase 1, Requirement Set 2 (CIPI-1.2) is a pilot project sponsored by the US Census Bureau that leverages the success of previous and ongoing OGC initiatives to improve interoperability across communities that need to collaborate to detect, prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from natural and human threats to telecommunications, water resources, oil and gas, government, transportation, emergency response, electric power and health services infrastructure.
OGC is a member of the EO2HEAVEN team that is executing a Collaborative Project of the European Commission 7th Framework Program.
The Federated Earth Observation Missions (FedEO) Pilot will provide a broad international venue for operational prototyping and demonstration of Earth Observation (EO) requirements as defined by the European Space Agency (ESA) and by other OGC members. OGC seeks additional sponsorship for complimentary requirements. (ESA was the only FedEO sponsor.) The FedEO Pilot will apply and refine OGC specifications relevant to EO. OGC will release a formal Call for Participation (CFP) to encourage broad international participation.
The Fusion Standards Study Phase 1 was sponsored by the US National Geointelligence Agency (NGA).
