Past Initiatives

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...
The OWS 1.2 testbed focused on extending engineering specifications developed in OWS 1.1 and other initiatives including: OpenGIS® Specifications for OGC Common Architecture, Web Mapping, Imagery Exploitation and Sensor Web (including dynamic sensors). Results included more than twenty interoperability program reports (IPRs) on:

  • GML encodin...

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

Initial Plan

This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will address several important steps towards the development of a Geospatial Semantic Web (GSW), where discovery, query, and consumption of geospatial content are based on formal semantic specification. Many pieces of the GSW puzzle have been worked extensively in the last several years; this expe...

Agencies from all levels of government, on both sides of the U.S./Canada border, came together in the CIPI-1.1 pilot project to explore emergency management data sharing. In addition to developing a reference approach to uniting communities at different levels of government to share data, the demonstration illustrated a vision of data sharing for the future ...Agencies from all levels of government, on both sides of the U.S./Canada border, came together in the CIPI-1.1 pilot project to explore emergency management data sharing. In addition to developing a reference approach to uniting communities at different levels of government to share data, the demonstration illustrated a vision of data sharing for the future based on interoperability.

This Encoding Interoperability Experiment (IE) will implement a number of prototype GMLJP2 codecs based on the specification described in the OGC Discussion Paper "GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery". The purpose of the IE will be to confirm that the specification will support the requirements of geospatially related imagery over the Internet, and to ...

1. OWS-3 Overview

Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, OWS-3 participants worked collaboratively to extend the OGC baseline to enable an interoperable, multi-source decision support environment. The work addressed a rich set of requirements provided by OWS...
