The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) in the Incident Management Information Sharing (IMIS) Internet of Things Pilot Project (IMIS IoT Pilot).(http://www.opengeospatial.org/projects/initiatives/imisiot).

IMIS IoT Pilot sponsors have documented interoperability requirements and objectives for this pilot activity. Organizations selected to participate in the IMIS IoT Pilot will develop solutions based on the sponsors’ use cases, requirements and scenarios, which are described in detail in the RFQ/CFP. Participants’ solutions will implement using existing OGC standards as well as new prototype interface and encoding specifications introduced or developed in OGC testbeds. Outcomes will be documented in public OGC Engineering Reports.

The Point of Contact for information about this Pilot initiative is Lew Leinenweber via email at:  imis-iot-responses [at] opengeospatial.org.

IMIS IoT Pilot Sponsors

The RFQ/CFP includes details of technical requirements and task to be performed as well as details on participation eligibility, selection process and kickoff workshop information.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of the OGC Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate standards into the OGC Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release.

Responses are due by 5:00 pm EDT on 22 May 2015.
