The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting public comment on the proposed GeoRSS Community Standard.
OGC Press Releases
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting public comment on the proposed Indexed 3D Scene Layers Community Standard. Indexed 3D Scene Layers (I3S) was submitted by Esri for consideration as an OGC Community Standard. The submission was supported by 13 OGC member organizations.
The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has approved GeoSciML as an OGC Standard. The OGC GeoSciML Standard defines a model and encoding for geological features commonly described and portrayed in geological maps, cross sections, geological reports, and databases.
GeoSciML provides a mechanism for storage and exchange of a broad range of geologic data enabling users to generate geologic depictions (such as maps) in a consistent and repeatable fashion.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has announced that the Kickoff Event for the Testbed 13 Innovation Initiative will be held on 4-6 April at USGS’ Headquarters in Reston, VA, USA.
The threads are sets of spatial interoperability requirements that will be addressed in the testbed to support the following:
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is excited to announce that it has published Moving Features Access as an official standard.
Moving Features Access defines location data access operations so that big data from moving features, such as people and vehicles, can be processed and analyzed swiftly and across different sectors. The standard was jointly developed by Hitachi, Ltd. (Hitachi), the University of Tokyo (the University), and Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comments on the draft charter of a proposed Unmanned Systems Domain Working Group (UXS DWG).
The proposed DWG will provide an open forum for the discussion and presentation of interoperability requirements, use cases, pilots, and implementations of OGC standards in the Unmanned Systems Community (including aerial, underwater, and other unmanned vehicle platforms).
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for an OGC Common Object Model Container (COMC) Standards Working Group (SWG).
The core philosophy behind the COMC SWG is that a user should be able to publish and retrieve data in the format most suitable for that user. Ultimately, the geospatial community should be able minimize concerns with different data encodings and specific server specifications, allowing a free flow of information between systems and users.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is looking for information on the existence of mapping and geospatial Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as part of an OGC Concept Development Study (CDS) that will examine the interoperability of existing geospatial APIs.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting public comment on its Discrete Global Grid System (DGGS) Abstract Specification Topic.
23 February 2017: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) invites members and the public to attend the OGC Arctic Spatial Data Pilot demonstration online or in-person on the 15th March 2017 at the USGS in Reston, Virginia.
