25 November 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Working Group invite all I/ITSEC attendees to attend a demonstration of new standards developments that provide the capability to rapidly discover, transform, and stream geospatial data from Internet sources into Modeling and Simulation applications. The USGIF M&S Working Group Demo is part of the I/ITSEC 2013 Modeling, Simulation & Training Conference, to be held
OGC Press Releases
6 June 2014. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comments on the charter for a new GeoTIFF Standards Working Group (SWG). The charter is available at https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/57198. The OGC GeoTIFF SWG formation and process are being driven by the existing GeoTIFF user community.
7 November 2014. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has announced that the OGC Members approved the KML 2.2 validator as part of the official OGC Compliance Testing Facility. The validator tests whether implementations are correctly publishing KML data. The validator tests KML and KMZ files, located locally or available via a URL.
5 May 2015 – The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has adopted the OGC Well-known Text (WKT) Representation of Coordinate Reference Systems Encoding Standard.
7 October 2015. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the OGC OWS Context GeoJSON Encoding candidate standard. This candidate standard is intended to increase overall use of geospatial information by providing additional geospatial capabilities for the large and growing community of GeoJSON developers. The candidate standard provides flexible alternatives for interoperation and integration of RESTful and service-oriented geoprocessing resources.
18 May 2016. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting comments on the WaterML 2: Part 4 - GroundWaterML 2 (GWML2) candidate standard.
October 27, 1998, Wayland, MA. The Open GIS Consortium, Inc. (OGC) issued a request for technology (RFT) for an OGC Interoperability Initiative called the Web Mapping Technology Testbed. Sponsored by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), the US Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC) and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), the testbed is intended to advance Web mapping technology, support development of a multi-vendor portable demonstration, and feed requirements into OGC's OpenGIS Specification process.
