OGP / IPIECA Oil Spill Response Common Operating Picture (COP)

Published report

This project is completed and the final report has been published by IPIECA.   The resport has also been approved as an OGC Best Practice

This report provides recommended practice for GIS/mapping in support of oil spill response and for the use of GIS technology and geospatial information in forming a “Common Operating Picture” to support management of the response.

GeoMobile and Internet of Things


Access to the Internet will predominantly be from mobile devices including smart phones and machine-to-machine interactions.  Most information exchanged in mobile internet will include spatial components.  

In support of OGC members and society, this OGC Interoperability Program initiative aims to help develop the consensus standards infrastructure necessary to achieve the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of location information in mobile applications worldwide.
