OGC Seeks Comment on Geography Markup Language 3.3 Standard

Release Date: 
2011-07-05
Content: 

5 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate version 3.3 of the OGC Geography Markup Language (GML). GML 3.3 builds on GML 3.2.1, published by ISO as ISO 19136:2007, and extends GML with additional schema components based on requirements requested by various domains of interest. For example, the 3d modeling community suggest the addition of triangular meshes (TINs) to GML. GML 3.3 is fully backwards compatible with GML 3.2.

OGC seeks comment on new working group focused on disseminating lightweight “datacubes”

Release Date: 
2014-11-20
Content: 

20 November 2014 – The OGC seeks comment on the charter for a new OGC Standards Working Group (SWG) being formed to develop an OGC standard for disseminating relatively small “tiles” of geospatial data to lightweight devices. This group will also define in detail how existing widely used OGC standards can be used to support data tiling functionality.

OGC seeks comment on new working group focused on representing time series spatial observation data

Release Date: 
2014-10-21
Content: 

21 October 2014 – The OGC seeks comment on the charter for a new OGC Standards Working Group (SWG) being formed to develop an OGC standard – TimeSeriesML 1.0 – for the representation of time series observations data. This work is motivated by requirements in hydrology and meteorology, but the standard will be designed to be useful in any application that involves periodic sampling of spatially referenced data. Time scales could range from the geologic time scales of climate to the nanosecond time scales of radiofrequency spectrum.

OGC Seeks Comment on Proposed Web Map Context Specification

Release Date:

Content: 
Wayland, MA, February 19, 2003 - The Open GIS Consortium, Inc. (OGC) announces a Request for Comment (RFC) on the proposed Web Map Context Documents Implementation Specification. This proposed specification describes a standardized approach to enable the capture and maintenance of the context - or state information - of a Web Map Server (WMS) request so that this information can be reused easily in the future user session.

OGC Seeks Comments on "NIL Extension" to Geography Markup Language (GML)

Release Date: 
2012-10-24
Content: 

24 October 2012. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate "GML-NIL profile" of the OGC Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding standard. GML is a widely used XML grammar for encoding information about geographical features. The GML-NIL profile provides a way to allow data providers to make a best effort to supply data according to an application schema, even if they do not have values for all feature properties. This is achieved by marking the application schema as a whole as ‘nillable=true’ and
