OGC Initiatives

The Web Mapping Testbed Phase 2 (WMT-2) expanded on work done in WMT-1. It resulted in more federal data coming on-line using WMT protocols and laid a foundation for OGC Pilot Projects that tested and demonstrated the new capabilities. WMT-2 resulted in improvements to GetFeatureInfo, GetMap, and GetCapabilities, the basic elements of the Web Map Server Inte...
The U.S. Census Bureau sponsored the second phase of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative, CIPI-2, an OGC pilot project. Census used the OGC's rapid-prototyping process to develop two prototype systems: an online system to update governmental unit boundary information for existing incorporated places, and an OpenGIS® Specification confor...
Testbed. GOS-PI yielded a working prototype standards-based portal for geospatial information discovery and access that is expected to be the model for the GOS project (http://www.geo-one-stop.gov/) portal. The prototype was the basis for the "OpenGIS Portal Reference Architecture, a Community Guide to Implementing Standards-Based Geospatial Portals" (pendin...

The First-Ever OGC Plugfest

The First-Ever OGC Plugfest was held on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 in Southampton, UK in connection with the 50th OGC Technical Committee Meeting. This plugfest concentrated on testing interoperability between clients and servers that are intended to comply with Web Map Service 1.1.1 and Web Feature Service 1.0....

The Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative Phase 1, Requirement Set 2 (CIPI-1.2) is a pilot project that leverages the success of previous and ongoing OGC initiatives to improve interoperability across communities that need to collaborate to detect, prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from natural and human threats to telecommunications, water ...The Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative Phase 1, Requirement Set 2 (CIPI-1.2) is a pilot project that leverages the success of previous and ongoing OGC initiatives to improve interoperability across communities that need to collaborate to detect, prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from natural and human threats to telecommunications, water resources, oil and gas, government, transportation, emergency response, el

In this pilot project, OGC partnered with the US Department of Transportation (Bureau of Transportation Statistics) and FGDC to test the use of data content models for practical application by cooperating communities, specifically focusing on Road Transportation data. OGC tested and demonstrated the use of FGDC's Road Transportation Data Content Standard wit...
Testbed. After the events of September 11, the OWS 1.1 sponsors agreed to align OWS 1.1 to address interoperability challenges defined by officials in New York City. The OWS 1.1 demonstration scenario developed by the sponsors challenged participating technology developers and integrators to implement interoperability capabilities that address specific criti...

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...
