Land Development DWG

1.    Key Activities.
The DWG will focus on the following activities:
1.    Reviewing the current LandXML schema and determining how best to continue to support the existing users and engage with them.
2.    Assessing the current industry support for the LandXML schema and whether multiple, incompatible versions of the schema have evolved.
3.    Investigating how to best incorporate LandXML into the OGC standards framework, including identifying places where there may be common elements in existing standards such as CityGML.
4.    Investigating the possibility of moving the LandXML schema into LandGML.

Coordinate Reference System DWG

The Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Domain Working Group develops strategies for encoding of earth coordinate reference systems and transformations between coordinate reference systems. Also addresses units of measure. The group has worked consistanty on the joint OGC-ISO Document 19111 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates and on ISO 19162 Well Known Text for Coordinate Reference Systems.

The group provides a focal point for related standards working groups and for managing issues with the standards and the coordinate reference systems domain.

Workflow Domain WG

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...

Data Quality DWG

The mission of the DQ DWG to establish a forum for describing an interoperable framework or model for OGC Quality Assurance measures and Web Services to enable access and sharing of high quality geospatial information, improve data analysis and ultimately influence policy decisions.

The WG will attempt to define a framework and a grammar for the certification and communication of spatial DQ. This method to describe and communicate data quality measures will reference, but not be limited by, a number of categories:


The GeoBI Ad Hoc has been renamed to GeoBI DWG upon approval during the December 2011 TC/PC meetings.
Business intelligence (BI) aims to support better business decision-making using computer-based techniques used for identifying, extracting and analyzing business data. Geospatial Business Intelligence (GeoBI) adds geospatial technology to BI.
