Register to attend the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Technical Committee's Smart Grid Ad Hoc Meeting, "The Smart Grid's Geospatial Requirements"! As Mark Reichardt, President and CEO of the OGC, explains in "Space, Time, and the Smart Grid’s Neighboring Worlds ", Smart Grid web services will need to communicate information about location, proximity, political and ownership boundaries, weather-affected regions and more. Those web services will communicate through open standard interfaces and encodings IF THE SMART GRID STANDARDS COMMUNITY MAKES IT SO! If your company or agency is involved in the Smart Grid Standards effort, we encourage you to meet with other members of the Smart Grid standards community to explore the Smart Grid's geospatial issues in a special Smart Grid Ad Hoc meeting in the Olympus Mons (CL4) facility at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California from 1400-1700 on Wednesday afternoon, December 9, 2009. Agenda for the Smart Grid Ad Hoc meeting: 1. Areas of convergence between current Smart Grid standards and OGC standards: Common Information Model and the contexts for geospatial information and processing, Wide Area Situational Awareness, cyber-seurity, requirements for Sensor Webs and other topics that are defined or inferred in Release 1 of the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards . 2. OGC involvement and participation: formation of a Domain Working Group and orchestration of collaborative work by OGC and other SDO's (IEEE, IETF, OASIS, etc). 3. Next Steps and Actions. We invite you to also attend the OGC Technical Committee's Evening Reception and dinner from 1830-2100 at the world famous Computer History Museum in Mountain View.  The OGC holds its Technical Committee Meetings five times per year at locations around the world, and the Evening Receptions are always memorable events!

In October, 2008 OWS-6 participants began a set of parallel development activities organized around geospatial interoperability requirements in the following areas:  

- Sensor Web Enablement (SWE): geospatial rights management; interfaces for Chemical-Biological-Radiological-Nuclear (CBRN) sensors; georeferenceable imagery; harmonization of the OGC's OpenGIS® Sensor Model Language (SensorML), Geography Markup Language (GML), and Uncertainty Markup Language (UncertML) Encoding Standards, and the W3C's MathML; and the OGC's Web Notification Service (WNS) Best Practice document.  

- Geo Processing Workflow (GPW): Web services security; asynchronous workflows within and across security domains; Open Grid Forum (OGF) application of services implementing the OpenGIS Web Processing Services (WPS) Interface Standard; GML application schema development and ShapeChange enhancements; and others.  

- Decision Support Services (DSS): ISO 19117 and OpenGIS Style Layer Descriptor (SLD) Encoding Standard portrayal; 3D fly-through; indoor/outdoor 3D route services; OpenGIS Web Map Tiling Service (WMTS) interface development; and integrated clients for multiple OGC Web Service (OWS) services.  

- Aeronautical Information Management (AIM): Web standards for providing up-to-date aeronautical and weather information to pilots and aircraft while at the airport gate or en-route to its destination. To support these goals, the scope of the AIM thread had the following areas of work: Use and enhancement of the   OpenGIS® Web Feature Service (WFS) Interface Standard and Filter Encoding (FE) Encoding Standard in support of AIXM features and 4-dimensional flight trajectory queries; architecture for alert/notify of aeronautical information changes; prototype of clients for retrieval, integration and visualization of AIXM content, weather, and other aviation data; emphasizing time and spatial filtering in order to present just the right information into any given user context anytime, anywhere.  

- Compliance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE):Continued development of robust test and certification tools for the OGC Web Mapping Service (WMS) 1.3 standard.  

The webinar will demonstrate OWS-6 achievements involving Web services architecture and interoperability solutions that are documented in OGC Engineering Reports. The plan is to release the Engineering Reports as OGC public documents in July, 2009. The SWE, GPW and DSS portions of the demo will show how standards-enabled interoperability supports coordinated responses to a hypothetical disaster scenario involving an airport hostage crisis.

Webinar Information: 
Please note: 28 April 2009 - The Webinar Demo of OWS-6 Testbed results will not be held on April 29th as previously announced.  In preparing for the webinar, the performance of WebEx has not been sufficient to provide a quality experience for displaying the audio and video parts of the testbed demonstrations.   By April 30, we will provide instructions for downloading the video demonstrations and supporting material for your individual viewing.   Anticipating that we will resolve the webinar performance issue, we will announce a later date for the live webinar with the members of the OWS-6 team.

 

On Wednesday, April 29, 2009, from 11:00am-1:00pm US Eastern time (UTC - 4 hr), OGC® will conduct a webinar demonstrating results from the OGC Web Services, Phase 6 (OWS-6) testbed activity which has been underway since October 2008. At that time OGC and project participants kicked off development to advance OGC’s open framework of standards based on priority geospatial and location based interoperability requirements. The content of the OWS-6 initiative was organized around the following areas or threads of focus:

    1) Sensor Web Enablement (SWE)
    2) Geo Processing Workflow (GPW)
    3) Decision Support Services (DSS)
    4) Aeronautical Information Management (AIM)
    5) Compliance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE)

Emphasis for the SWE thread was on:
•    Geospatially-enabled Rights Management and Trusted Services in a sensor-based environment, including adding SOAP binding to sensor web services.
•    Developing common web-based interfaces for Chemical-Biological-Radiological-Nuclear (CBRN) sensors, to support Sensor Observation Services (SOS), Sensor Planning Services (SPS), Sensor Alert Services (SAS), and web service catalogue registration (CSW) using SensorML.
•    Building on Georeferenceable Imagery accomplishments of OWS-5, to develop sensor parameter adjustability and error propagation for georeferenceable imagery.
•    Harmonizing these SWE information models: SensorML, GML, UncertML, MathML.
•    Developing an events-based architecture including Web Notification Service (WNS)

The main topics in the GPW thread were as follows (with security topics being of additional relevance for SWE thread):
•    Data Security and Web Services Security Environments
•    Asynchronous Workflows Within and Across Security Domains
•    Open Grid Forum (OGF) Enabled Web Processing Services (WPS)
•    GML Application Schema Development & ShapeChange Enhancements
•    Web Processing Service (WPS) Profiles
•    Data Accessibility for Data Content Schema (DCS)-enabled WFS

The DSS thread encompassed these capabilities and task areas:
•    ISO 19117 and OGC SLD Portrayal
•    3D Portrayal of GML with Fly-through
•    Outdoor and indoor 3D route services
•    WMS performance (tiling)
•    Integrated Clients for multiple OWS services

The upcoming webinar will demonstrate achievements for OWS-6 in terms of web services architecture, software development, and engineering reports written. For SWE, GPW and DSS threads, these achievements will be described around the organizing principle of response by multiple stakeholder organizations to a disaster scenario. The scenario for this demonstration starts with a hostage crisis in a government building near a major urban airport, which escalates when a major fire breaks out. Emergency responders include police and fire crews, and their progress in handling the crisis can be seen with the decision-support tools provided. Cross-cutting issues include a generic events architecture, and a segmented security architecture.

The Aviation thread focused on providing up-to-date aeronautical and weather information to pilots and aircraft while at the airport gate or en-route to its destination. To support these goals, the scope of the AIM thread had the following areas of work:
•    Use and enhancement of Web Feature Service (WFS) and Filter Encoding (FE) specifications in support of AIXM features and 4-dimensional flight trajectory queries.
•    Architecture of standards-based events mechanism to alert/notify users of changes to user-selected aeronautical information.
•    Prototype of Aviation clients for retrieval, integration and visualization of AIXM content, weather, and other aviation-related data, emphasizing time and spatial filtering in order to present just the right information into any given user context anytime, anywhere.

The CITE thread is different in purpose from the others; it is intended to develop robust test and certification tools for OGC standards. In this cycle of development, the CITE thread involved developing and refining abstract and executable test suites for software products seeking OGC certification in the area of WMS 1.3 (including all mandatory and optional elements of the standard), and the WMS 1.3 DGIWG Profile.

The webinar will last 2 hours, with the last 30-45 minutes planned for questions from viewers. This will be conducted using the WebEx Event Center, requiring only a current Adobe Flash plug-in to enable viewing. To register, go to http://portal.opengeospatial.org/public_ogc/090429_ows6_webinar.php .

OGC’s Interoperability Program is a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC’s Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release.

Overview:Standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium are becoming more and more established in the geospatial world and hold the key to build Geodata infrastructures based on interoperable components. The European Commission is encouraging the wider adoption of standards e.g. in the context of INSPIRE, the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe directive.

 

Whilst market demand for standards compliant components is steadily growing, many end users are still puzzled as to how the underlying specifications actually evolve, or what the direct benefits are in the context of their day to day business. Moreover there are questions relating to the level of real life adoption on national and European levels.

On Friday the 3rd of April 2008 you have a chance to get first hand answers to such questions at the OGC & HellasGI Greek Interoperability Day, held in Athens, Greece.

The presentation sessions include experts from OGC, governmental organizations, academics and companies.

The presentation sessions during the Interoperability Day are accompanied by selected company and project presentations in the catering and break-out area.

The language of the event will be mainly Greek but some of the presentations will be in English.

GEOSS Workshop XXV
Perspectives on GEOSS Architecture: Principles and Implementation

Palacio de Congresos, Valencia, Spain
3-4 December 2008

This GEOSS workshop will focus on the system-of-systems architecture that guides the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) in developing GEOSS.

The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) aims to achieve comprehensive, coordinated and sustained observations of the Earth system. An initial operating capability of the GEOSS Common Infrastructure has recently been established. The workshop will review the architecture that guided the initial capability and will develop recommendations for future developments.
The workshop will interest individuals and organizations from government, academia and industry sectors that seek to use GEOSS to increase access to Earth observations for their own use or for supporting their organizations system planning. Also, the workshop will interest individuals and organizations that seek to understand how their systems can contribute to GEOSS.
