17 February 2015 – The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has approved the OGC Moving Feature Encoding Model and Encoding as an official OGC standard. This standard defines an abstract model for encoding moving feature data compliant with ISO 19141:2008 Schema for moving features, and, based on the abstract model, it also includes an XML encoding in the form of an OGC Geography Markup Language (GML) application schema, and a simple CSV (comma-separated value) encoding format.
OGC Press Releases
24 September 2012 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has approved the Enhanced Data Model Extension to the OGC Network Common Data Form (netCDF) Core Encoding Standard. The Enhanced Data Model Extension, along with the Core Encoding Standard, the netCDF Binary Encoding Extension Standard - netCDF Classic, and the 64-bit Offset Format (adopted as official OGC standards in April 2011) are available for free download at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/netcdf.
27 October 2014. The OGC membership has adopted the OGC Sensor Observation Service 2.0 Hydrology Profile as an OGC Best Practice.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has adopted SensorThings API Part 1: Sensing as an official 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.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Association of Geographic Information (AGI) have joined forces to offer European organizations the chance to learn more about open standards and interoperability. Hosted at the Met Office in Exeter on Friday, 22nd June 2012, following the OGC Technical Committee meetings earlier that week, the day will be of interest to everyone in the geospatial community, especially those who want to know more about what Open Government and international geospatial standards can offer them and their organisation.
Wayland, MA, June 16, 2010. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) (http://www.opengeospatial.org ) and AGISEE, the Association for Geospatial Information in South-East Europe (http://www.agisee.org) announced that they have established a cooperative relationship to promote the importance of open standards in the development of spatial data infrastructures and raise the awareness of interoperability in South-East Europe.
