Content: 

12 May 2014 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership as adopted the OGC standard, "OGC I15 (ISO19115 Metadata) Extension Package of CS-W ebRIM Profile 1.0."

The OGC Catalogue Services Standard establishes a general framework for implementing catalogue services used for publishing and discovering geospatial data and geoprocessing services. The developers of the I15 standard anticipate that this standard will be useful to stakeholders in a wide variety of domains whose spatial metadata conform to the ISO19115 Metadata standard.

The OGC adopts Open Modelling Interface (OpenMI) Standard

Release Date:
