Environmental Linked Features Interoperability Experiment (ELFIE)

Summary

In recent years, environmental domain feature models have been established by a number of sub-domain groups. However, there is no best practice or standard methodology to encode documents containing links between and among domain features, such as a rivers, aquifers, or soils, and observational data about those features. A common approach to encoding such links is required to allow cross-domain and cross-system sharing and interoperability of such linked information.

Geospatial to the Edge Interoperability Plugfest

The Geospatial to the Edge Interoperability Plugfest, co-sponsored by Army Geospatial Center and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA/CIO&T) will bring together technology implementers and data providers to advance the interoperability of geospatial products and services based on OGC profiles. The Plugfest will assist tool enhancement and provide guidance to improve the delivery of enterprise geospatial data to end users.  Examples of how end user communities will benefit are:

European Location Framework

The goal of this project is to deliver the European Location Framework (ELF) required to provide up-to-date, authoritative, interoperable, cross-border, reference geo-information for use by the European public and private sectors.This versatile cloud-based and cascade-supporting architecture provides a platform of INSPIRE compliant geo-information, harmonised at a cross-border and pan-European level.
