The Federated Earth Observation Missions (FedEO) Pilot will provide a broad international venue for operational prototyping and demonstration of Earth Observation (EO) requirements as defined by the sponsor, the European Space Agency (ESA), and by other OGC members. OGC seeks additional sponsorship for complimentary requirements.

The Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) Pilot, sponsored by GeoConnections Canada, was an initiative of OGC's Interoperability Program to test the feasibility of using open, standards-based technology to improve the management and dissemination of geospatial data in Canada. In particular, this project demonstrated that technology fr...

The Geographic Objects Initiative defined platform-independent and implementation-neutral interface models of specific geographic services or component objects. The specific Geographic Object interfaces modeled relate to mapping processes (render or query, for example) or an input or output of those processes (a coordinate or a map, for example). Creating hi...The Geographic Objects Initiative defined platform-independent and implementation-neutral interface models of specific geographic services or component objects.

Testbed. GOS-PI yielded a working prototype standards-based portal for geospatial information discovery and access that is expected to be the model for the GOS project (http://www.geo-one-stop.gov/) portal. The prototype was the basis for the "OpenGIS Portal Reference Architecture, a Community Guide to Implementing Standards-Based Geospatial Portals" (pendin...

The First-Ever OGC Plugfest

The First-Ever OGC Plugfest was held on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 in Southampton, UK in connection with the 50th OGC Technical Committee Meeting. This plugfest concentrated on testing interoperability between clients and servers that are intended to comply with Web Map Service 1.1.1 and Web Feature Service 1.0....
The U.S. Census Bureau sponsored the second phase of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative, CIPI-2, an OGC pilot project. Census used the OGC's rapid-prototyping process to develop two prototype systems: an online system to update governmental unit boundary information for existing incorporated places, and an OpenGIS® Specification confor...
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 wit...
Testbed. After the events of September 11, the OWS 1.1 sponsors agreed to align OWS 1.1 to address interoperability challenges defined by officials in New York City. The OWS 1.1 demonstration scenario developed by the sponsors challenged participating technology developers and integrators to implement interoperability capabilities that address specific criti...

The Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative Phase 1, Requirement Set 2 (CIPI-1.2) is a pilot project that leverages the success of previous and ongoing OGC initiatives to improve interoperability across communities that need to collaborate to detect, prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from natural and human threats to telecommunications, water ...The Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative Phase 1, Requirement Set 2 (CIPI-1.2) is a pilot project that leverages the success of previous and ongoing OGC initiatives to improve interoperability across communities that need to collaborate to detect, prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from natural and human threats to telecommunications, water resources, oil and gas, government, transportation, emergency response, el
