Past Initiatives

Open Location Services Testbed, Phase 1.1

The OpenLS Testbed was sponsored by Hutchison 3G UK, Sun Microsystems, In-Q-Tel, ESRI with SignalSoft, and Oracle with Webraska.

This testbed yielded Interoperability Program Reports (IPRs) that have become approved OpenGIS® Specifications in support of interoperable Location Based Services to be made available through mobile terminals. The OpenLS Testbed ended with a successful multi-vendor, specification-based mobile demonstration of these interfaces in action.

SAA Pilot

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) SAA Dissemination OGC Pilot demonstrated the feasibility of automating the dissemination and portrayal of Special Activity Airspace (SAA) information (including updates) to National Airspace System (NAS) stakeholders and other external users via OGC Web Services.

Spatial Data Quality Certification Concept Development

This project is for the Concept Definition (CD) phase of a Spatial Data Quality Certification Initiative in OGC’s Interoperability Program. The main outcome of the CD Phase will be a Feasibility Report defining the Initiative. The Feasibility Report will be used to recruit additional sponsors for the execution phase of the Initiative. In particular the Feasibility Report will be ready for discussion at the INTERGEO conference in Munich, 9-13 October 2006.

Web Mapping Testbed, Phase 1

The Web Mapping Testbed Phase 1 (WMT-1) was OGC's first Interoperability Initiative, and it marks an important milestone in the history of geoprocessing. WMT-1 yielded interface prototypes vendors used to enable users to immediately overlay and operate on views of thematic map data from different online sources (subject to limitations of the data), regardless of which vendor's software was serving that data. These prototypes ultimately resulted in the OpenGIS Web Map Server Specification.
