23 June 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for an OGC Hydrologic Features (HY_Features) Standards Working Group (SWG). The purpose of the proposed SWG is to progress the HY_Features hydrologic feature model to the state of an adopted OGC standard for a common and stable identification and referencing of hydrologic features.
OGC Press Releases
28 July 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for a proposed OGC Standards Working Group (SWG). The OGC Temporal Well Known Text (WKT) for Calendars Standards Working Group is being formed to adapt existing standards to provide the capability to represent and encode temporal metadata within data sets and protocols that use customised calendars.
02 July 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the OGC® Web Coverage Service 2.0 Interface Standard – JPEG2000/JPIP Coverage Encoding Extension – abbreviated as “JPEG2000/JPIP-Coverage”.
22 January 2015 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC(R)) membership has issued a Request for Comments on the OGC LandInfra Conceptual Model.
This document, the first public draft of the OGC's proposed UML conceptual model for land parcels and the built environment, communicates the proposed intent and content of a new candidate OGC standard to be called the OGC InfraGML Encoding Standard. The UML conceptual model establishes a single set of consistent concepts that could be implemented in GML (as InfraGML) or in other encoding mechanisms.
23 September 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the candidate OGC Publish/Subscribe Core (PSC) 1.0 Interface Standard and the OGC Publish/Subscribe SOAP Binding (PSSB) 1.0 Interface Standard.
18 May 2016. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting comments on the WaterML 2: Part 4 - GroundWaterML 2 (GWML2) candidate standard.
18 August 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on proposed OGC standards for the representation of observations as timeseries, that is, a sequence of data values which are ordered in time.
17 December 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the OGC® Coverage Implementation Schema(abbreviated as “CIS”). This candidate OGC Standard complements the OGC Abstract Topic 6 Standard (which is identical to ISO 19123) with a concrete coverage model whose implementations are conformance testable and, hence, are interoperable. ISO has expressed interest to adopt CIS 1.1 as ISO 19123-2.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) requests comments on the charter for a proposed Quality of Service and Experience (QoSE) Domain Working Group (DWG).
Spatial data now plays a critical role in the smooth functioning of contemporary society. From aiding emergency workers during crises to empowering businesses to make informed decisions, the reliable availability of the spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) that provide this critical spatial information is more important than ever.
