OGC Implementation Specifications
The new OGC StandardsTracker has been developed to replace the old Change Request Tool. You can now view or submit new issues or change requests via the same tool.
You will need to create an account to get started with a submission of a change request.
The below PDF documents were produced from the old tool and are available either in PDF or in the new StandardsTracker.
In March, 2007 the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) membership approved the Geospatial Digital Rights Management Reference Model (GeoDRM RM), an abstract specification for the management of digital rights in the area of geospatial data and services. The GeoDRM RM is Topic 18 of the OpenGIS® Abstract Specification.
The goal of the GeoDRM effort in the OGC is to make sure that a larger market has access to geospatial resources through a well understood and common mechanism that enables more than today's "all or nothing" protection. A major motivation for this effort is the need to manage the "ownership obstacle to data sharing" in spatial data infrastructure scenarios.
