The purpose of a Government Special Interest Group (SIG) is to define organizational and business approaches to address key government requirements for (and issues affecting) the development and implementation of a community-wide OpenGIS architecture.

Special Interest Groups (SIG) provide a forum for the discussion of business and technology interoperability requirements for given geographic region or information community.

Domain Working Groups (DWG or WG) provide a forum for discussion of key interoperability requirements and issues, discussion and review of OGC standards and candidate standards, and presentations on key technology areas relevant to solving geospatial interoperability issues.

Domain Working Groups (DWG or WG) provide a forum for discussion of key interoperability requirements and issues, discussion and review of implementation specifications, and presentations on key technology areas relevant to solving geospatial interoperability issues.

A Subcommittee is a standing group (organizationally, a subgroup of the Technical Committee or the Planning Committee) of individuals composed of members of the TC or PC and Invited Guests, with a mission to provide recommendations to the TC or PC in some general area. A Subcommittee does not generate a Standard nor do they work on a Standard.

The work of the OGC is facilitated and coordinated by three separate committees: The Technical, Planning, and Strategic Advisory Committees, and also the OGC Architecture Board.

The OGC Planning Committee (PC) is composed mainly of Principal and Strategic Member representatives. The Planning Committee provides guidelines and a management structure for OGC's Technical Committee and Interoperability Program. The Business Value Subcommittee is a subcommittee of the OGC Planning Committee.

Purpose:

To organize a SIG to define organizational and business approaches relating to European members' issues that have significance for the development and implementation of a community-wide OpenGIS architecture, and to stimulate the further growth of the European GI market.

Charter:

The Architecture WG considers overarching architectural issues that are germane to multiple OpenGIS(r) specifications, including mechanisms for describing and invoking services in a heterogeneous distributed network. Chair: Doug Nebert (ddnebert [at] usgs [dot] gov), Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC).
