22 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) requests reference implementations of the OGC Sensor Planning Service (SPS) 2.0 for use in compliance testing.
The OGC Compliance Program (CITE) tests whether implementations of OGC standards comply with mandatory elements in the standards. Implementations that pass CITE tests are eligible to pay a Trademark License Fee to use the "Certified OGC Compliant" brand in packaging and marketing.
October 27, 1998, Wayland, MA. The Open GIS Consortium, Inc. (OGC) issued a request for technology (RFT) for an OGC Interoperability Initiative called the Web Mapping Technology Testbed. Sponsored by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), the US Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC) and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), the testbed is intended to advance Web mapping technology, support development of a multi-vendor portable demonstration, and feed requirements into OGC's OpenGIS Specification process.
5 July 2012 - To support compliance testing, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) requests reference implementations for client software that implements the OGC Web Map Service (WMS) 1.3 Interface Standard. Development and testing of WMS 1.3 Reference Implementations will be coordinated and managed as part of the Compliance and Interoperability Testing & Evaluation (CITE) Thread in this year's major OGC Web Services Testbed Initiative (OWS-9). Funding is available to selected participants.
2 June 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) requests reference implementations of the OGC Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) Interface Standard for use in compliance testing.
21 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate Earth Observation profile for the OGC Web Coverage Services (WCS) 2.0 standard. This profile will facilitate on-line data access to Earth observation data products.
6 July 2011. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC “GeoSPARQL: A Geographic Query Language for RDF Data” Standard. The candidate OGC GeoSPARQL standard defines spatial extensions to the W3C's SPARQL protocol and RDF query language.
