OGC Press Releases
18 May 2016. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting comments on the WaterML 2: Part 4 - GroundWaterML 2 (GWML2) candidate standard.
11 May 2016. The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has approved the WaterML2.0 Part 2 - Ratings, Gaugings and Sections Standard as an official OGC standard.
WaterML2.0 represents an initiative within the joint World Meteorological Organization (WMO) / OGC Hydrology Domain Working Group to address standards development and interoperability of hydrological information systems at an international level. The first part of WaterML2.0 focused on a standard information model, and an XML encoding derived from that model, for time series of hydrological observations.
03 May 2016. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for an OGC Land Administration Domain Working Group (DWG).
21 April 2016. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for an OGC Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Standards Working Group (SWG).
The purpose of the OGC SWG is to revise Abstract Specification Topic 2 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates to the state of an adopted OGC standard and an identical ISO International Standard. This will be achieved by processing comments received during the public comment period and ensuring that the standard is consistent with OGC business plans.
This OGC Candidate Standard specifies an open format and encoding for the storage, access and modification of a representation of the natural and built environment for simulation applications. CDB defines the data representation, organization and storage structure of a worldwide synthetic representation of the earth as well as the conventions necessary to support all of the subsystems of full-mission simulators and networks of heterogeneous simulators.
The update has been approved by the OGC Architecture Board (OAB) and the Metadata Domain Working Group (DWG). The period for public comment ends 07 May, 2016
1 April 2016. ASTM International and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) will collaborate on developing and disseminating standards, best practices, and other tools that support the growing geospatial industry.
The organizations plan to work together in areas such as data acquisition and dissemination, location-based services, and unmanned (autonomous) navigation.
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.
