GITA Interoperability Demonstration Call for Participation

Status: 
Please note: This Request is closed.
Description: 

On April 24, 2006, the Opening Session of GITA`s Annual Conference 29 in Tampa, Florida, will include a feature completely new to the event. Foregoing the traditional keynote speaker, GITA`s Board of Directors has approved a motion by the Annual Conference Committee to conduct an educational and entertaining Interoperability Demonstration. In doing so, GITA is challenging the industry to meet the theme for this year`s conference, "No Barriers: Connected. Responsive. Prepared". This demonstration will feature integrated data, products, solutions, and services from multiple organizations, showing how standards-based, commercial off-the-shelf geospatial software, data and services can be used to remove the barriers within a geospatial community. GITA`s Geospatially Enabling Community Collaboration initiative, or GECCo, is a project that is helping local communities protect their critical infrastructure. Based around a to-be-determined GECCo scenario that will hopefully include the Tampa Bay area, participants will be able to demonstrate to an estimated 1,200 session attendees how critical and complex tasks that used to take days now take a fraction of that time to complete; all through the use of open architecture and standards-based implementation. Although this session will be based on technology and special attention being given to Web services, the goal of the demonstration is to show decision-makers how the use of interoperable technology provides will help facilitate quicker, more accurate, and less costly decisions. This Call for Participation is open to everyone; however, all participating organizations must be members of GITA. A committee has been established to review submissions for participation. Based upon those responses, selections will be made for participation. GITA will not provide funding or reimburse costs associated with this demonstration. Commercial presentations and product demonstrations will not be accepted. It will be the responsibility of the submitting organization to attend regularly scheduled teleconferences and collaborative demonstration dry runs during the planning and preparation stages (if applicable, a data or service provider may only need to be available if situations or questions arise). All costs, other than standard audio/visual support at the live demonstration and the collaborative preparation environment, will be at the expense of the participants. If your organization is interested in participating in this unique demonstration, please send a short description of your offering, along with complete contact information, to interop.proposal [at] opengeospatial.org prior to October 14, 2005. Pending membership in GITA, nonmembers may be provisionally accepted to participate in the demonstration.

This document defines a profile of the Geography Markup Language (GML) version 3.1.1 for encoding definitions of commonly-used Coordinate Reference Systems (CRSs) plus related coordinate Conversions.

This profile can be used without a GML Application Schema, and such use is assumed in this document. However, a GML Application Schema that uses this profile could be specified. For example, an Application Schema could specify a specialized "TransverseMercatorConversion", as discussed in Annex F. Or an Application Schema could allow or require more information to be encoded for an OperationParameter (such as specified in Subclause 14.3.2 and wctsOperationParameter.xsd of OGC Discussion Paper [OGC 05-013]).

This document defines a profile of the Geography Markup Language (GML) version 3.1.1 for encoding definitions of grid coverage (including image) Coordinate Reference Systems (CRSs) plus related coordinate Transformations. This document also specifies some Universal Resource Names (URNs) for definitions in the "ogc" URN namespace, in addition to those specified in [OGC 05-010]. Additional specific URNs are defined for definitions of the datums, coordinate systems, and coordinate system axes which are often used in definitions of grid and image CRSs.

This profile can be used without a GML Application Schema, and such use is assumed in this document. However, a GML Application Schema that uses this profile could be specified. For example, an Application Schema could specify "GridCRS" as a better name for a DerivedCRS that uses a CartesianCS. Or an Application Schema could allow or require more information to be encoded for an OperationParameter (such as specified in Subclause 14.3.2 and wctsOperationParameter.xsd of OGC Discussion Paper [OGC 05-013]).

This document specifies the interface to a Web Processing Service (WPS). A WPS can be configured to offer any sort of GIS functionality to clients across a network, including access to pre-programmed calculations and/or computation models that operate on spatially referenced data. A WPS may offer calculations as simple as subtracting one set of spatially referenced numbers from another (e.g., determining the difference in influenza cases between two different seasons), or as complicated as a global climate change model. The data required by the WPS can be delivered across a network, or available at the server.

This interface specification provides mechanisms to identify the spatially-referenced data required by the calculation, initiate the calculation, and manage the output from the calculation so that it can be accessed by the client. This Web Processing Service is targeted at processing both vector and raster data.

This document defines an application profile of an OGC Catalogue service; it is primarily based on the HTTP binding (the CSW part) described in Clause 11 of the OGC Catalogue Services Specification, version 2.0 (OGC 04-021r3). The profile constrains the usage of several base specifications and introduces some additional search, retrieval, and transaction capabilities.

This document is a reference model for digital rights management (DRM) functionality for geospatial resources (GeoDRM). As such, it is connected to the general DRM market in that geospatial resources must be treated as nearly as possible like other digital resources, such as music, text, or services. It is not the intention here to reinvent a market that already exists and is thriving, but to make sure that a larger market has access to geospatial resources through a mechanism that it understands and that is similar to the ones already in use.

This document specifies models and XML encoding for the core SensorML. SensorML provides a common framework for any process and process chain. Within SensorML, sensors and transducer components (detectors, transmitters, actuators, and filters) are all modelled as processes that can be connected and participate equally within a process chain, and which utilize the same process model frame as any other process.

This document specifies Sensor Observation Service. A Sensor Observation Service provides an API for managing deployed sensors and retrieving sensor data and specifically "observation" data. Whether from in-situ sensors (e.g., water monitoring) or dynamic sensors (e.g., satellite imaging), measurements made from sensor systems contribute most of the geospatial data by volume used in geospatial systems today
