OGC Press Releases
August 25, 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) and the OpenMI Association announced that they recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to cooperate in standards development and promotion of open standards related to computer modelling. A first priority will be the facilitation of OpenMI 2.0 as an open international consensus standard under the OGC process framework.
1 June 2012 - Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®), an international standards development organization, invite participation in an Energy & Utilities Geospatial Standards Ad Hoc Meeting to be held on Monday, 18 June 2012 at 1600-1755 BST (UTC/GMT +1 hour) in Exeter, England. This meeting, focused on Smart Grid standards, will be part of the upcoming OGC Technical Committee meeting to be held June 18-21 in Exeter.
13 December 2012. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a call for sponsors of the 10th annual OGC Web Services Testbed (OWS-10) (http://www.opengeospatial.org/projects/initiatives/ows-10). Sponsors of OGC testbeds provide interoperability requirements that drive rapid development, testing and delivery of proven candidate standards into the OGC Standards Program. OGC standards reduce the business risks associated with the use,
23 July 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments on the candidate OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard Processing Extension.
17 February 2014 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comment on the candidate GML in JPEG 2000 Encoding Standard version 2. This geospatial data encoding standard defines how the Geography Markup Language (GML) is to be used within JPEG 2000 images for adding geographic content to imagery. Once approved, the GML in JPEG2000 version 2 standard will join a suite of international open standards that provide a platform for seamless service-based publishing, discovery, assessment, ordering, access and processing of geospatial information.
26 June 2014 – 22 public Engineering Reports resulted from the Open Geospatial Consortium's (OGC®) recently completed OGC Interoperability Testbed 10 (OSW-10), the most recent in the OGC's yearly series of major geospatial interoperability testbeds. Eight of these reports focused on Aviation Information Management. Use cases and scenarios provided by Testbed 10 sponsors defined the interoperability requirements.
