Working Groups

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...

This group was officially created at the Edinburgh TC with:

  • Co-chair, Rick Pearsall, NGA
  • Co-chair, Lucio Coliacomo, EUSC
  • Members including: Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems, DIGWG, EUSC,ESRI, Galdos Systems, University of Alabama Huntsville, NGA, Intergraph, TechniGraphics

Mission

It is the mission of the Security DWG to establish an interoperable security framework for OpenGIS Web Services to enable protected geospatial information processing.

Background and Problem Statement

Current specifications of the OGC do not include security related aspects. In order to enable protected geospatial inform...

The Meteorology & Oceanography Domain Working Group was established at the OGC Athens Technical Conference, 2009-03-31, to ensure that OGC standards and profiles allow the meteorological community to develop effective interoperability for web services and content across the wider geospatial domain.

The Hydrology Domain Working Group is a Joint Working Group of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the OGC

The purpose of the Hydrology DWG is to provide a venue and mechanism for seeking technical and institutional solutions to the challenge of describing and exchanging data describing the state and location of water resources, b...

The Earth Systems Science (ESS) DWG engages in outreach and dialog with the Natural Resources and Environment information community to demonstrate the value of OGC processes and standards, and to provide a point of input for new requirements.

Current focus of the group includes:

  • Enhanced Collaboration between and among research and ...

The mission of the Workflow DWG is to establish a forum for describing, discussing, and solving any issues related to geospatial workflows. By geospatial workflow we mean any workflows that contain any or all processes that relate to geospatial processes and/or data. The primary focus of this DWG is to help individuals and organizations to identify smar...

The Architecture DWG considers overarching architectural issues that are germane to multiple OpenGIS(r) specifications, including mechanisms for describing and invoking services in a heterogeneous distributed network. Chair: Doug Nebert (ddnebert@usgs.gov), Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC).

The scope of the Geosemantics DWG is any aspect of conceptual modeling and formal representation of geospatial knowledge which advances the the geospatial interoperability mission of OGC. A particular focus will be the adoption or development of tools and methods in support of these activities.

It is the mission of the Geosemantics DWG to esta...
