The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate "GeoPackage Extension for Tiled Gridded Coverage Data" standard. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information.
OGC Press Releases
22 May 2014 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) Membership seeks public comment on a new version of the OGC Catalogue Service interface standard. This standard specifies a design pattern for defining interfaces to publish and search collections of descriptive information (metadata) about geospatial data, services and related information objects.
This OGC Candidate Standard specifies an open format and encoding for the storage, access and modification of a representation of the natural and built environment for simulation applications. CDB defines the data representation, organization and storage structure of a worldwide synthetic representation of the earth as well as the conventions necessary to support all of the subsystems of full-mission simulators and networks of heterogeneous simulators.
4 March 2015 - The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC CF-netCDF 3.0 encoding using the GML Coverage Application Schema Standard.
This new addition to the netCDF suite of standards provides additional ways to serve complex multi-dimensional CF-netCDF data for use in geographic information systems (GIS) or other geospatial systems not capable of handling complex CF-netCDF data.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is requesting public comment on its Discrete Global Grid System (DGGS) Abstract Specification Topic.
20 January 2016 - The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the OGC Emergency and Disaster Management Information Framework Discussion Paper.
The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on its WaterML 2 - Part 3, Surface Hydrology Features Conceptual Model.
25 June 2015. The OGC membership seeks public comment on the candidate OGC® Web Coverage Service (WCS) - Transaction operation extension, version 2.0.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comments on the draft charter of a proposed Unmanned Systems Domain Working Group (UXS DWG).
The proposed DWG will provide an open forum for the discussion and presentation of interoperability requirements, use cases, pilots, and implementations of OGC standards in the Unmanned Systems Community (including aerial, underwater, and other unmanned vehicle platforms).
