OGC Press Releases
20 January 2012. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) announced the formation of a new OGC Technical Committee Standards Working Group (SWG) to advance the candidate OGC IndoorGML Standard. The OGC members invite the public to comment on the SWG charter (https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=47562 ) and will consider comments received before 10 February 2012.
20 September 2012 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has adopted the OGC WaterML 2.0 Part 1: Time Series Encoding Standard as an official OGC standard.
OGC WaterML 2.0 is an important new XML-based international standard for encoding and exchanging data describing the state and location of water resources, both above and below the ground surface. WaterML 2.0 Time Series supports encoding of hydrological and hydrogeological observation data in exchange scenarios such as:
22 March 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) announced that it will demonstrate the results of the OGC Climate-Hydrologic Information Sharing Pilot, Phase 1 (CHISP-1) at a webinar to be held from 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, April 16, 2013. The public is invited to register for the webinar.
31 October 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments on the candidate OGC standard, "OGC I15 (ISO19115 Metadata) Extension Package of the OGC Catalogue Services 2.0 (CS-W) ebRIM Profile."
The OGC Catalogue Services Standard establishes a general framework for implementing catalogue services used for publishing and discovering geospatial data and geoprocessing services.
19 May 2014 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) 3D Information Management Domain Working Group (3DIM) is hosting its third 3D Summit as part of the OGC’s June 2014 Technical Committee meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on 12 June 2014, 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM. The primary topic for this year’s 3D Summit is State of the Art in 3D, with particular focus on the following aspects:
1. Technologies: Topics and technologies which have not been exposed to the OGC community.
9 October 2014. The Open Geospatial Consortium – Mark Reichardt, president of the Open Geospatial Consortium, will deliver the geospatial keynote address at the GEO-Energy Summit and Educational Forum on November 13, 2014. The Summit is a two day event that will be held November 12-13 at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration and hosted by GEO Huntsville and Energy Huntsville in conjunction with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center (USSRC). Summit speakers and workshops will focus on Interoperability & national security key topics.
4 March 2015 - The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC CF-netCDF 3.0 encoding using the GML Coverage Application Schema Standard.
This new addition to the netCDF suite of standards provides additional ways to serve complex multi-dimensional CF-netCDF data for use in geographic information systems (GIS) or other geospatial systems not capable of handling complex CF-netCDF data.
31 August 2015. On October 14th, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) will demonstrate the results of the eleventh OGC Interoperability Testbed. The demonstration is being organized by the OGC North American Forum. The US Geological Survey (USGS) is hosting the event, which will take place from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon at the USGS Auditorium in Reston, Virginia.
14 March 2016 – The OGC Members recently approved release of all the public OGC Engineering Reports that resulted from the 2015 OGC Interoperability Testbed 11. Testbed 11 is the most recently completed of the OGC's long series of major geospatial interoperability initiatives. Five of the 26 Testbed 11 Engineering Reports focused on Aviation Information Management, as reported last November.
