Past Initiatives

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.

Citizen Observatory Web (COBWEB)

COBWEB will leverage the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR). Concentrating initially on the Welsh Dyfi Biosphere Reserve, we will develop a citizens’ observatory framework, and then validate the work within the context of the UK National Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and internationally, within the WNBR; specifically, within Greek and German Reserves.

HDWG Groundwater 2 IE

This groundwater interoperability experiment (GW2IE) developed and tested the GroundWater Markup Language 2, by harmonizing and advancing existing modeling initiatives such as: GWML1, relevant EU-INSPIRE models (Geology-hydrogeology, Environmental monitoring facilities), GeoSciML, and others. It produced an engineering report in preparation for movement to an OGC data specification subsequent to the GW2IE.

GeoMobile and Internet of Things

Background

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.
