Domain Working Groups (DWG or WG) provide a forum for discussion of key interoperability requirements and issues, discussion and review of implementation specifications, and presentations on key technology areas relevant to solving geospatial interoperability issues.
1. Agriculture Domain Working Group
Operation of the OGC Agriculture Domain Working Group (DWG) will follow the policies and procedures of the Technical Committee.
2. Purpose of the Agriculture Domain Working Group
The purpose of this Working Group will be to:
The Location Services SIG addresses interoperability issues of particular concern to members working in the area of Location-based Mobile Services.
The goal of this Working Group is to clarify the role of time as a first-class alignment concept next to space, and to strive for a handling of time which is coherent and integrated with that of space. As the issue of time in CRSs is an overarching one across all OGC, the WG will seek to include background from as many OGC stakeholder groups and WGs as possible.
The central purpose of the Coverages DWG is to promote and oversee development of OGC Implementation Specifications for exploitation of, and accessing, coverage data, including images and other grid coverages. Secondary purposes include promoting use of these specifications, and refining the OGC Abstract Specification as may be needed to better support these specifications.
The purpose of the Oblique Imagery Domain Working Group (OIDWG) is to identify and utilize Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards, data and services, as well as standards from any other SDO to identify gaps and overlaps in the use of oblique imagery...
The Architecture DWG considers overarching architectural issues that are germane to multiple OGC(r) standards, including mechanisms for describing and invoking services in a heterogeneous distributed network. A key focus for 2015 and 2016 is defining best practices and encoding rules for using JSON and GeoJSON in OGC standards.

Purpose of the Data Preservation DWG
The purpose of the Data Preservation DWG is to provide a venue and mechanism for seeking technical and institutional solutions to the challenge of preserving digital geospatial data.
OGC members are specifying interoperability interfaces and metadata encodings that enable real time integration of heterogeneous sensor webs into the information infrastructure. Developers will use these specifications in creating applications, platforms, and products involving Web-connected devices such as flood gauges, air pollution monitors, stress gauges on bridges, mobile heart monitors, Webcams, and robots as well as space and airborne earth imaging devices.
