OGC Seeks Comments on MovingObjectSnapshot Standard

Please note: This Request is scheduled to close on August 23rd, 2010.

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) is seeking public comment on a Geography Markup Language (GML) XML encoding for describing the characteristics of a moving object, such as a GPS enabled car. This candidate standard provides a way of describing in simple terms the motion of an object, such as a car driving through city streets or a person walking in a park.

This candidate standard fills a need for “lightweight” packets of tracking information, such as direction and velocity, that can be communicated between diverse platforms and applications supporting mobile location-aware devices. The GML encoding used in this candidate standard  is compatible with a wide range of other standard encodings used in other communities, such as emergency services.

The candidate standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/69. The public comment period closes on August 23rd, 2010.
