OGC Initiatives

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...

Technology Insertion Project. The CTI Project, sponsored by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), integrated multiple map servers, including nodes at the Corps' Mississippi Valley Division and the New Orleans District Office. Insertion Projects focus on expanding an organization’s interoperability capacity by ...

Agencies from all levels of government, on both sides of the U.S./Canada border, came together in the CIPI-1.1 pilot project to explore emergency management data sharing. In addition to developing a reference approach to uniting communities at different levels of government to share data, the demonstration illustrated a vision of data sharing for the future ...Agencies from all levels of government, on both sides of the U.S./Canada border, came together in the CIPI-1.1 pilot project to explore emergency management data sharing. In addition to developing a reference approach to uniting communities at different levels of government to share data, the demonstration illustrated a vision of data sharing for the future based on interoperability.

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 ...

GEOSS will achieve comprehensive, coordinated and sustained observations of the Earth system, in order to improve monitoring of the state of the Earth, increase understanding of Earth processes, and enhance prediction of the behavior of the Earth system. Information about GEOSS. 

OGC is involved in GEOSS in several ways:

  • ...
As customers in the geospatial industry prepare to modernize their systems based on OGC Web Services, they will require proof of products' conformance to OpenGIS® Specifications in order to achieve interoperability. Validating conformance to an OpenGIS® Specification means verifying that a software product has implemented the specification cor...

1. OWS-3 Overview

Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, OWS-3 participants worked collaboratively to extend the OGC baseline to enable an interoperable, multi-source decision support environment. The work addressed a rich set of requirements provided by OWS...
