OGC Press Releases
7 October 2015 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments on the OGC OpenSearch Extension for Earth Observation, a candidate OGC standard. This OpenSearch extension provides a simple way to make queries to a repository that contains Earth Observation information and enables syndication of repositories for this purpose. Once approved as a standard and implemented in software products and services, this Standard will make it much easier for users to navigate diverse and expanding collections of Earth observation data.
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.
Wayland, MA, USA, December 17, 2002 - The Open GIS Consortium, Inc. (OGC) today announced a new resource to link those interested in working on interoperability issues with those who need personnel to do so. The OGC Internship Project ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/univ/ ) provides an electronic bulletin board where students can post their areas of interest and organizations can post their needs. The ultimate goal is to match up these two groups to help move interoperability in the geospatial domain forward.
