OGC Groups

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 initial goal will be on how to best synchronize the project-oriented work in ORCHESTRA with the on-going activities in the OGC TC.

The Geography Markup Language (GML) Revision Working Group maintains the OpenGIS GML Specification. Work is currently focussed on progressing standardisation of GML through ISO/TC 211 as ISO 19136. This is being carried out by a joint OGC RWG/ISO Editting Committee. GML 3.1 - recently issued by OGC as a recommendation paper - is the curren...

The Decision Support WG discusses requirements for interfaces necessary for interoperable service chaining (common expression and execution) in the areas of data mining, Integrated Client to access all OWS services and simulation. The DSS WG is currently reworking its mission to better reflect current OGC and IT best practices with regard to decision support.

The Simple Features RWG is working on a revision of the SF SQL Implementation Specification. Revisions are based on a number of change requests. A key part of the work is alignment with SQL-MM.
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).
