Past Initiatives

Authentication IE

Results of the Auth IE are presented in this Engineering Report document and serve as guidance to both implementers and organizations deploying solutions that involve basic authentication. It is the belief of the Auth IE participants that if such a document is made available to the community more OGC implementing products will natively support authentication.

MOSIA Lot 1 Project

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:

·     SINTEF

·     Snowflake Software

Web Mapping Testbed, Phase 1

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.

Object Domain Modeling Support (ODMS) Initiative

The ODMS Initiative developed a domain model for utilities as a vehicle to achieve semantic interoperability within and across information communities. The model shows how users within the utilities arena and those in related disciplines such as engineering and public safety can more easily share geographic data, even if they choose to name features differently. The OGC worked on the initiative with the CADD/GIS Center for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment (CADD/GIS Center). A UML model for Utilities was developed and delivered and is available from the CADD/GIS Center.
