OGC Press Releases
25 July 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) Hydrology Domain Working Group and the OGC Meteorology and Oceanography Domain Working Group, both of which are Joint Working Groups of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the OGC, announced an Oceans/Meteorology/Hydrology Water Cycle Summit to be held on Wednesday 21 September 2011. The summit will be a part of the week-long OGC Technical Committee and Planning Committee Meetings, which will take place at Center Green, UCAR/NCAR, Boulder, Colorado, USA.
22 February 2012 - The global aviation community is moving forward on the adoption of an international framework of standards that enable communication in a net-centric, globally interoperable Air Transport System (ATS).
5 November 2012 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC SensorML 2.0 Encoding Standard.
SensorML is a machine-readable language for describing sensors, actuators, and processes surrounding measurement. SensorML is a key component of the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) suite of standards.
SensorML 2.0 includes the following changes to the previous version 1.0.1, which was approved in 2007:
29 May 2013 - The OGC CityGML SWG, the SIG 3D, and Technische Universität München will host a joint international workshop to gather requirements to guide the development of the next major version of CityGML (3.0). The workshop will take place on the 20th and 21st of June, 2013 in Munich, Germany. The organizations seek input from CityGML users, data producers, software manufacturers, and scientists working with or on CityGML. Participation in the event is free of charge including coffee breaks and light lunch meals. Travel, accommodation, and the
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
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.
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.
