This profile defines a restricted but useful subset of XML-Schema and GML to lower the "implementation bar" of time and resources required for an organization to commit for developing software that supports GML. It is hoped that by lowering the effort required to manipulate XML encoded feature data, organizations will be encouraged to invest more time and effort to take greater advantage of GML's rich functionality.

OGC Seeks Comments on SWE Common Service Model Interface Standard

Status: 
Please note: This Request is scheduled to close on 25 April 2010.
Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) Common Service Model Interface Standard Version 2.0. The SWE Service Model provides a common set of data types and defines a common set of interface mechanisms that can be used with other SWE interface standards.

There are two "SWE Common" standards: The OGC SWE Common Service Model Interface Standard is applicable to all services that provide or require information from or about sensors. It is designed for uses cases in which sensors need to be accessed and managed through service interfaces. A related standard, the OGC SWE Common Encoding Standard, provides a standard model (and XML implementation of the model) for the representation, nature, structure and encoding of sensor related data. It is used for describing static data (files) as well as dynamically generated datasets (on-the-fly processing), real-time streaming data, and process and web service inputs and outputs.

Both of the SWE Common standards are designed to be used with other existing OGC® Sensor Web Enablement standards such as OGC Sensor Model Language (SensorML) Encoding Standard, Sensor Observation Service (SOS) Interface Standard and Sensor Planning Service (SPS) Interface Standard.

The proposed OGC SWE Service Model 2.0 Standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available below. The public comment period closes on 25 April 2010.

The OGC announces Call for Participation in MilOps Geospatial Interoperability Experiment

Status: 
Please note: This Request is closed as of 4 March 2013. The documents listed below have been adopted by the OGC Technical and Planning Committee. These specifications are under control of the Standards Working Group and will be released after the edits and revisions. For the most current version please check our Standards Page.
Closing Date:

Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has announced a Call for Participation (CFP) in the OGC MilOps Geospatial Interoperability Experiment (MOGIE). The CFP document is available below. 

Command and Control (C2) Core (https://c2core.gtri.org) has been an emerging data exchange capability within Department of Defense over the past three years.  DoD CIO is now moving toward adopting the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) (http://niem.gov). C2 Core, which is 93% aligned with NIEM technical standards, will be used as the foundation for developing a Military Operations (MilOps) Domain in NIEM. 

The purpose of this experiment is to ensure interoperability of the MilOps Domain with the OGC's geospatial standards and with tools built on those standards. This experiment will demonstrate that the MilOps Domain model and NIEM v2.1 technical concepts work in combination with OGC standards, such as the Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard and the Web Feature Service (WFS) Web coverage Service (WCS) and Web Mapping Services (WMS) interface standards.

The OGC members that are acting as initiators of the Interoperability Experiment are:

Expressions of interest for participation are due by 4 March 2013.

Contact Frank Klucznik (Frank.Klucznik [at] gtri.gatech.edu) for further details and to register as a participant.

Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is also one of the organizations that will be participating in the Interoperability Experiment. GTRI and other organizations planning to participate will develop tools, implement and deploy OGC service components or client applications, design a test plan, and prepare reports that contribute to the overall objectives of the experiment.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of the OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop and test candidate specifications and then deliver these proven specifications into the OGC's Standards Program, where they are formalized for public release as OGC standards. These initiatives enable users and providers of geospatial technology to share the costs of developing standards that provide a foundation for "future-proof" enterprise architectures. Providers reduce their costs of developing and maintaining interfaces and encodings while gaining industry recognition, the confidence of an initiative's sponsoring organizations, and the market growth that results from open standards.

An OGC Interoperability Experiment is a rapid, low overhead, formally structured OGC-facilitated activity in which members achieve specific technical objectives that further the OGC Technical Baseline.

Fusion Request for Information

Status: 
Please note: This Request is scheduled to close on 12 August 2009.
Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit industry input into a Fusion Standards Study to be conducted in preparation for the planned OGC Web Services, Phase 7 (OWS-7) Testbed. OGC also seeks to establish alliances with other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) having technology relevant to fusion.

In the context of this RFI, "Fusion is the act or process of combining two or more pieces of data or information regarding one or more entities in order to improve the capability for detection, identification, or characterization of that entity".

This RFI is based on requirements and contributions from several OGC Member organizations, including the National Geospatial-intelligence Agency (NGA), BAE Systems - C3I Systems, and Lockheed Martin.

The Study will conduct a survey of standards and implementations that support geospatial fusion. It will review existing standards regarding fusion; recommend future standards or integration or harmonization of standards; and plan for evaluating standards through OGC's OWS-7 testbed to be conducted later this year.

Responses to the RFI are requested by August 12, 2009. The RFI below includes instructions for how organizations can respond. Please contact George Percivall at gpercivall [at] opengeospatial.org with any questions.

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

OGC seeks comments on Climate and Forecast (CF) extension to NetCDF Core data model standard

Status: 
Please note: This Request is closed. The documents listed below have been adopted by the OGC Technical and Planning Committee.

Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership seeks comments on an OGC candidate standard, the CF-netCDF Data Model extension to the existing OGC Network Common Data Form (netCDF) Core Encoding Standard version 1.0. 

The CF-netCDF Data Model is a flexible data model widely used in climate and weather forecast systems as well as for other types of environmental data. The candidate CF-netCDF Data Model extension to the existing OGC Network Common Data Form (netCDF) Core Encoding Standard version 1.0 is the latest step in establishing CF-netCDF as an OGC standard for binary encoding.  This will enable standard delivery of data in binary form via several OGC service interface standards.

The OGC netCDF encoding supports electronic encoding of geospatial data, specifically digital geospatial information representing space- and time-varying phenomena. NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is widely used internationally to communicate and store many kinds of multidimensional data, although it was originally developed for the Earth science community.  The netCDF data model is particularly well suited to providing data in forms familiar to atmospheric and oceanic scientists: namely, as sets of related arrays. 

The conventions for climate and forecast (CF) metadata are designed to promote the processing and sharing of files created with the netCDF API.  The conventions define metadata that provide a definitive description of what the data in each variable represents, and the spatial and temporal properties of the data. This enables users of data from different sources to decide which quantities are comparable, and facilitates building applications with powerful extraction, regridding, and display capabilities.

NetCDF was developed and is maintained and actively supported by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) (www.ucar.edu). UCAR and other OGC members introduced the first netCDF specification as a candidate OGC standard to encourage broader international use and greater interoperability among clients and servers interchanging data in binary form. 

The candidate CF-netCDF Data Model extension to the existing OGC Network Common Data Form (netCDF) Core Encoding Standard version 1.0 and information about submitting comments on this document are available below. The public comment period closes on September 21, 2012.

Please note: This Request is closed. The documents listed below have been adopted by the OGC Technical and Planning Committee. These specifications are under control of the specification Revision Working Group and will be released after the edits and revisions. For the most current version please check our Standards Page.
Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC Open GeoSMS Standard - Core.

The candidate OGC Open GeoSMS Standard allows applications to location enable Short Message Service (SMS). SMS is the text communication service component of phone, web and mobile communication systems. SMS uses standardized communications protocols that allow the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices.

Open GeoSMS enables developers to use extended Short Message Service (SMS) to facilitate communication of location content between different LBS (Location-Based Service) devices or applications. The encoding is extremely light weight and the standards document is quite short.
 
The Taiwan Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) contributed this candidate standard to the OGC. Open GeoSMS is already in use in a number of deployed commercial applications in Taiwan as well as in a number of disaster response applications such as those provided by Sahana.

The candidate OGC Open GeoSMS Standard can be found below.  The period for issuing comments expires on 24 April 2011.
