OGC Groups

Mission

It is the mission of the Security WG to establish an interoperable security framework for OpenGIS Web Services to enable protected geospatial information processing.

Background and Problem Statement

Current specifications of the OGC do not include security related aspects. In order to enable protected geospatial informa...

The Natural Resources and Environment WG engages in outreach and dialog with the Natural Resources and Environment information community to demonstrate the value of OGC processes and standards, and to provide a point of input for new requirements. The NRE WWG is in the process of being merged with the Earth Observation (EO) WG.
