OGC Initiatives

The Federated Earth Observation Missions (FedEO) Pilot will provide a broad international venue for operational prototyping and demonstration of Earth Observation (EO) requirements as defined by the sponsor, the European Space Agency (ESA), and by other OGC members. OGC seeks additional sponsorship for complimentary requirements.

The Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) Pilot, sponsored by GeoConnections Canada, was an initiative of OGC's Interoperability Program to test the feasibility of using open, standards-based technology to improve the management and dissemination of geospatial data in Canada. In particular, this project demonstrated that technology fr...

Summary

The Oceans Science Interoperability Experiment will consolidate a portion of the Ocean-Observing community on its understanding of various OGC specifications, solidify demonstrations for Ocean Science application areas, harden software implementations, and produce a candidate OGC Best Practices document that can be used to inform the bro...

DESCRIPTION

This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will implement a number of prototype GeoLinking services based on the interface specification originally described in the Geolinked Data Access Service (GDAS) and GeoLinking Service (GLS) Discussion Papers. The purpose of the IE will be to confirm that OGC specifications completely support the ab...

The Geographic Objects Initiative defined platform-independent and implementation-neutral interface models of specific geographic services or component objects. The specific Geographic Object interfaces modeled relate to mapping processes (render or query, for example) or an input or output of those processes (a coordinate or a map, for example). Creating hi...The Geographic Objects Initiative defined platform-independent and implementation-neutral interface models of specific geographic services or component objects.

Initial Plan

This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will address several important steps towards the development of a Geospatial Semantic Web (GSW), where discovery, query, and consumption of geospatial content are based on formal semantic specification. Many pieces of the GSW puzzle have been worked extensively in the last several years; this expe...

The OWS 1.2 testbed focused on extending engineering specifications developed in OWS 1.1 and other initiatives including: OpenGIS® Specifications for OGC Common Architecture, Web Mapping, Imagery Exploitation and Sensor Web (including dynamic sensors). Results included more than twenty interoperability program reports (IPRs) on:

  • GML encodin...

This Encoding Interoperability Experiment (IE) will implement a number of prototype GMLJP2 codecs based on the specification described in the OGC Discussion Paper "GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery". The purpose of the IE will be to confirm that the specification will support the requirements of geospatially related imagery over the Internet, and to ...
