OGC Groups

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.

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.

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.

The DocTeam is a subcommittee of the OGC Technical Committee. The DocTeam will work with OGC staff and OGC members to define, enforce and educate on documentation guidelines (format, templates, style) within the OGC. It will work with OGC staff and OGC members to maintain strong linkages between the Implementation Specifications and the Abstract Specification with the goal of maintaining a core model upon which all OG...The DocTeam will work with OGC staff and OGC members to define, enforce and educate on documentation guidelines (format, templates, style) within the OGC.

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 Coordinate Reference System Working Group develops strategies for encoding of earth coordinate reference systems and transformations between coordinate reference systems. Also addresses units of measure.

The Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Domain Working Group develops strategies for encoding of earth coordinate reference systems and transformations between coordinate reference systems. Also addresses units of measure. The group has worked consistenty on the joint OGC-ISO Document 19111 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates

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...
