Office International de l'Eau (OIEau) has been setting up open information systems and data exchange standards in water related domains for years. OIEau's main standardization activity is the support it provides to the French water community via the Sandre secretariat. OIEau teams support other initiatives such as Water Information System for Europe (WISE) and the INSPIRE data specification process. As an OGC member, OIEau is also involved in the Hydrology Domain Working Group, which is co-chaired by the OGC and the World Meteorology Organization's Commission on Hydrology.
