1. OWS-3 Overview
Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, OWS-3 participants worked collaboratively to extend the OGC baseline to enable an interoperable, multi-source decision support environment. The work addressed a rich set of requirements provided by OWS-3's sponsors. Sponsors include: BAE Systems, IONIC, GeoConnections (Canada), Lockheed Martin, MAGIC Services
