The MOSIA consortium group (MOdeling Support with standards for Information and Architecture models applied to ATM) is a consortium of organisations with a background in Information management and Information, Service and Architecture modeling from a set of standardisaton organisations, in particular OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium), ISO/TC211, INSPIRE and OMG (Object Management Group). The MOSIA group is led by SINTEF and consist of the following partners:
· Snowflake Software
OGC’s Climatology-Hydrology Information Sharing Pilot, Phase 1 (CHISP-1) project was conducted as a Pilot initiative, a collaborative effort that applies technology elements from the OGC Technical Baseline and other (non-OGC) technologies to address Sponsor requirements and scenarios.
The Web Mapping Testbed Phase 1 (WMT-1) was OGC's first Interoperability Initiative, and it marks an important milestone in the history of geoprocessing. WMT-1 yielded interface prototypes vendors used to enable users to immediately overlay and operate on views of thematic map data from different online sources (subject to limitations of the data), regardless of which vendor's software was serving that data. These prototypes ultimately resulted in the OpenGIS Web Map Server Specification.
The LandXML schema facilitates the exchange of data created during the Land Planning, Civil Engineering and Land Survey process. More information concerning LandXML can be obtained from www.landxml.org
Geography Markup Language is an XML grammar written in XML Schema for the modelling, transport, and storage of geographic information. More information concerning GML can be found at www.opengeospatial.org
In this pilot project, OGC partnered with the US Department of Transportation (Bureau of Transportation Statistics) and FGDC to test the use of data content models for practical application by cooperating communities, specifically focusing on Road Transportation data. OGC tested and demonstrated the use of FGDC's Road Transportation Data Content Standard with software products that employ OpenGIS® Specifications such as Web Feature Service (WFS) and Geography Markup Language (GML).
The Fusion Standards Study Phase 1 was sponsored by the US National Geointelligence Agency (NGA).
