17 August, 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) members are seeking comments on the "Earth Observation Satellite Tasking Extension for OGC® Sensor Planning Service (SPS)." The SPS configuration proposed in this profile supports the programming of Earth Observation (EO) sensor systems. The candidate standard describes a single SPS configuration that can be supported by many satellite data providers who have existing facilities for managing sensor system programming requests.
OGC Press Releases
19 July 2012. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC GeoServices REST API standard. The GeoServices REST Application Programming Interface (API) provides a standard way for web clients to communicate with geospatial technologies, such as Geographic Information System (GIS) servers, based on Representational State Transfer (REST) principles.
13 September 2012 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) announces the formation of a new OGC Land Information Domain Working Group (Land Info DWG) to address CAD, Land Information System (LIS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) interoperability challenges facing industry domains concerned with the built environment.
Wayland, Mass., 15 March 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) seeks public comment on the draft OGC Web Coverage Services (WCS) Interface Standard Version 2.0. The OGC WCS standard supports electronic retrieval of geospatial data as "coverages" - that is, digital geospatial information representing space/time-varying phenomena such as satellite imagery or digital elevation models. The WCS 2.0 draft has several significant enhancements over previous versions.
Wayland, Mass., 23 July, 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) is seeking public comment on a Geography Markup Language (GML) XML encoding for describing the characteristics of a moving object, such as a GPS enabled car. This candidate standard provides a way of describing in simple terms the motion of an object, such as a car driving through city streets or a person walking in a park.
September 7, 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) members are seeking comments on OGC candidate standards Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) Core Encoding Standard, and NetCDF Binary Encoding Extension Standard - NetCDF Classic and 64-bit Offset Format.
June 1, 2012 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership seeks comments on an OGC candidate standard, the Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) NetCDF Enhanced Data Model Extension Encoding Standard. This document specifies an extension to the existing OGC Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) Core Encoding Standard version 1.0.
25 March 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC Open GeoSMS Standard - Core.
The candidate OGC Open GeoSMS Standard allows applications to location enable Short Message Service (SMS). SMS is the text communication service component of phone, web and mobile communication systems. SMS uses standardized communications protocols that allow the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices.
January 24, 2011 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC Ordering Services for Earth Observation Products Interface Standard. This candidate interface standard defines interfaces for ordering products derived from Earth observation satellites. In particular it provides interfaces for:
November 01, 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC Sensor Observation Service (SOS) Standard Version 2.0. The SOS candidate interface standard is designed to provide access to sensor observations, sensor descriptions, and digital representations of observed features in an interoperable and standardized way. Further, the SOS 2.0 candidate standard provides means to insert new sensor descriptions or observations.
