Working Groups

Domain Working Groups

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.

General Description

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.

Coverages DWG

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.

Oblique Imagery DWG

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...

Architecture DWG

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.

Sensor Web Enablement DWG

Introduction

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.

Mobile Location Services DWG

The OGC Mobile Location Services (MLS) Domain Working Group (DWG) is a venue in the OGC Standards Program for location-aware mobile requirements and use cases. The MLS DWG will achieve this goal by a variety of means, including inviting industry experts to present to the DWG, issuing change requests to existing standards, identifying potential Interoperability Initiatives that advance these requirements, and defining best practices for applying OGC standards in a mobile environment.
