OGC Groups

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 central purpose of the Coverages DWG is to promote and oversee development of OGC Implementation Specifications for exploitation of, and accessing, coverage data, including images and other grid coverages. Secondary purposes include promoting use of these specifications, and refining the OGC Abstract Specification as may be needed to better support these specifications.

 

NOTE:  This group is Dormant.  The current work is being conducted in the GeoAPI 3.0 SWG .

 

GeoAPI aims to provide neutral, interface-only API's based upon existing and proposed OGC Standards. In short, the goal of this working group is to accomplish for GIS what JDBC achieved for databases.

The community may also interact with the GeoAPI at the GeoAPI's JIRA project page provided by JIRA Project Management.

Chair: Ron Lake, Galdos.  Vice Chair: Clemens Portele, Interactive Instruments

The Information Communities and Semantics WG addresses issues related to services that might be developed to help users manage semantic differences in spatial data content and metadata.

The Metadata WG addresses issues related to how metadata must be specified in OpenGIS Specifications to fully enable certain services in the OpenGIS Service Architecture. Maintains close correspondence between ISO TC/211 metadata standard and OpenGIS Specification's handling of metadata.
