Past Initiatives

Military Pilot Project Testbed, Phase 1

OGC’s Military Pilot Project, Phase 1, sponsored by the US Army Engineering and Development Center (ERDC), was a collaborative effort that contributed to the operational validation of interoperable commercial geoprocessing products for the defense and intelligence domain. MPP-1 addressed the problem that no single vendor’s commercial products meet all the diverse requirements of defense geoprocessing, and the diverse products from different vendors that might meet these requirements don’t, without OGC's standards, interoperate.

MOSIA Lot 1 Project

The MOSIA consortium group (MOdeling Support with standards for Information and Architecture models applied to ATM) is a consortium of organisations with a background in Information management and Information, Service and Architecture modeling from a set of standardisaton organisations, in particular OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium), ISO/TC211, INSPIRE and OMG (Object Management Group).  The MOSIA group is led by SINTEF and consist of the following partners:

·     SINTEF

·     Snowflake Software

Multihazard Mapping Initiative, Phase 1

This pilot project, sponsored by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), established a limited operational framework of interoperable services to illustrate the advantages of using products with OGC interfaces to access, fuse and visualize critical spatial information from multiple sources in support of FEMA multi-hazard mitigation, response and recovery functions. FEMA created their operational Hazardmaps.gov service using the lessons learned through the MMI initiative.

NGA Plugweek

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) conducted a series of tests that examined the interoperability, suitability and performance of National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) Profiles provided by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) of four OGC Standards, Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Coverage Service (WCS), and Catalog Service (CAT).  In the study, vendors, users, and other interested parties conducted Technology Integration Experiments (TIEs) and mutually refined clients, services, interfaces and protocols in the context of a hands-on engineeri

North Rhein Westphalia Pilot

The North Rhein Westphalia Pilot Project (NRWPP) was part of a state-wide initiative of the German state of North Rhine Westphalia to establish solutions for network integrated geographic information systems, serving state, city and county offices as parts of the general geographic data infrastructure.
