The aim of the CityGML QIE is to:
The rigorous testing of USGS web services performed in the Interoperability Assessment Project helped us identify and correct shortcomings of our implementation of OGC standards, and highlighted areas in which to improve the user experience with our web services. As a result of the project, our users can include the improved USGS services more easily in their decisions making and operational activities.
