OGC Calls for Comment on revision to OGC Web Services Common Standard

Status: 
Please note: This Request is scheduled to closed on 20 May 2009.
Description: 
The members of the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) request comments to a revision to the OpenGIS® Web Services Common Standard. This document specifies many of the aspects that are common to multiple OGC Web Service (OWS) interface Implementation Standards. These common aspects are primarily parameters and data structures used in operation requests and responses. Examples of common usage are how to handle bounding boxes, exception processing, URL requests, URN expressions, key value encoding, and so forth.

The primary use of OWS Common is as a normative reference for other OWS standards. Those standards currently include the OpenGIS Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), and Web Coverage Service (WCS) Standards. Rather than continuing to repeat this material in each Implementation Standard, each standard normatively references each relevant part of OWS Common.

The 30 day public comment period begins April 20, 2009 and closes on May 20, 2009. Comments will be reviewed and processed by the OGC Membership. The intent is to edit the OWS Common standard and move the revised document to be an approved OGC standard. The OpenGIS® Web Services Common Standard Request for Comment document can be downloaded below.

OGC Calls for Comment on Table Joining Service Standard

Status: 
Please note: This Request is scheduled to close on 14 April 2010.
Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) seeks public comment on the draft OGC Table Joining Service (TJS) Interface Standard. This standard defines an interface for services that provide the ability to join attribute data stored in one database on a network with the corresponding geometry (points, lines, or polygons) stored in another network accessible database.

 

For example, a table on one server may indicate the population of various cities, while a second server may contain the geometry that describes the cities' locations and boundaries. The TJS standard describes a set of interfaces for both servers that would allow the city name to be used as the "common geographic identifier" in order to join the population data to its geometry, thus enabling the user to create a map or perform geospatial analysis on the tabular data. An earlier draft of this specification was called the “Geographic Linkage Service”.

 

The proposed OGC TJS 1.0 standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available below.  The public comment period closes on 14 April, 2010.

OGC Calls for Industry Input on multi-INT Decision Fusion

Status: 
Please note: This Request is scheduled to close on 25 June 2010.
Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit industry input into the second phase of a Fusion Standards Study. Phase 2 of the study focuses on Decision Fusion. Input from the RFI will influence planning for the OGC Web Services, Phase 8 (OWS-8) Testbed. OGC also seeks to establish alliances with other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) having standards work relevant to fusion.

Decision Fusion, as described in the RFI, provides analysts an environment of interoperable services for situation assessment, impact assessment and decision support, based on information from multiple sensors and databases, e.g., multi-INT sources. The study includes recent advances such as social networking for decision fusion. Though the focus of the study is on military intelligence (“INT”), decision fusion is equally relevant to business intelligence, urban planning, and many other domains.

This RFI is based on requirements and contributions from OGC Member organizations – in particular the National Geospatial-intelligence Agency (NGA) – and industry recommendations from Phase 1 of the Fusion Standards Study.

The RFI contains a review of requirements and existing standards for decision fusion in several domains. Responses to the RFI will be reviewed during a workshop in July 2010.

Responses to the RFI are requested by June 11, 2010 [extended to 25 June]. The RFI includes instructions for how organizations can respond. Please contact George Percivall at gpercivall [at] opengeospatial.org with any questions.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on 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.

OGC Calls for input on Oil Spill Response Common Operating Picture recommended practice

Status: 
Please note: The primary request closed on 30 October 2013. 

See this page for the current status: http://www.opengeospatial.org/projects/initiatives/ogpoilspill

Closing Date: 
Wed, 10/30/2013 - 04:00
Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) along with the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (OGP) through the Geomatics Committee, IPIECA (the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues) and Resource Data, Inc. have issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit input on an Oil Spill Response (OSR) Common Operating Picture (COP) recommended practice.


This RFI is part of the OGP/IPIECA Joint Industry Project to produce a recommended practice for GIS/Mapping in support of Oil Spill Response and for the use of GIS technology and geospatial information in forming a COP for management of the response.

Organizations are encouraged to respond with recommendations for procedures, technology, and open standards that should be considered in a recommended practice for an OSR COP. The RFI seeks input on three topics:

  • Defining a COP and its use for Oil Spill Response (OSR)
  • The scope of the geospatial information which shall be part of OSR COP
  • Formats, media and methods for delivering COP information to organizations involved in OSR 

Responses to the RFI should describe technologies and open standards feasible in a distributed information environment. A series of workshops is planned to discuss submitted RFI responses. Compilation of the RFI responses and the workshop outcomes will be documented in a report that can serve as the basis for consensus adoption of a standards-based COP best practice for OSR.

Rob Cox, IPIECA Technical Director said, “I anticipate the RFI process will be a basis for creating a COP recommended practice that will contribute greatly to globally coordinated operations for oil spill response.” 
Responses to the RFI are requested by 30 October 2013. The RFI includes instructions for how organizations can respond. Please contact George Percivall at gpercivall [at] opengeospatial.org with any questions.

 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)1 is an international consortium of more than 480 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.

The International Association of Oil & Gas producers (OGP)2 is a unique global forum in which members identify and share best practices to achieve improvements in every aspect of health, safety, the environment, security, social responsibility, engineering and operations. OGP encompasses most of the world's leading publicly-traded, private and state-owned oil & gas companies, industry associations and major upstream service companies. OGP members produce more than half the world's oil and about one third of its gas.

IPIECA3 is the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues. IPIECA was formed in 1974 following the launch of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). IPIECA is the only global association involving both the upstream and downstream oil and gas industry on environmental and social issues. IPIECA’s membership covers over half of the world’s oil production. IPIECA is the industry’s principal channel of communication with the United Nations. When IPIECA was set up in 1974 the acronym stood for the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association. In 2009, recognizing that this no longer accurately reflected the breadth and scope of the association’s work, IPIECA stopped using the full title. The association is now known as IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues.
Resource Data, Inc.4 (RDI) has been supporting the oil & gas industry with information technology for spill response since 1989. RDI brings unparalleled experience to oil spill response, leading the geographic information system (GIS) and database teams for the Exxon-Valdez spill and more recently the GIS response team in the Macondo/Deepwater Horizon spill. RDI has developed numerous spill response data systems, participated in multiple drills, and developed risk analysis systems for major pipeline networks. Our depth and breadth of expertise in spill preparedness and response uniquely positions RDI to assist in the development of a Common Operating Picture for the oil & gas industry.

OGC Calls for Participation in Climatology-Hydrology Information Sharing Pilot (CHISP-1)

Status: 
Please note: This Request is closed.
Closing Date: 
Fri, 09/14/2012 - 04:00
Description: 

 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) to solicit proposals in response to requirements for the OGC Climatology-Hydrology Information Sharing Pilot (CHISP), Phase 1 (CHISP-1).

The RFQ/CFP is available at below.

Responses are due by 14 September, 2012.

A bidders’ teleconference was held on 15 August 2012. More information will be available below.

The Point of Contact is Lew Leinenweber (lleinenweber at opengeospatial.org).

The CHISP-1 sponsors are:

  • GeoConnections - Natural Resources Canada and Environment Canada
  • US Geological Survey (USGS)
  • US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Around the world, there is a critical need for improved sharing, accessing, and integration of hydrologic and climatic data.  To meet that need, CHISP-1 will engage leaders in the hydro-climatic community to collaboratively build a duplicable system that uses existing resources – including data portals, standards, technologies, activities, and expertise. These resources are available to stakeholders in all countries.

CHISP-1 will create a virtual observatory system for water resources observations and forecasts in parts of the U.S. and Canada, building on current networks and capabilities to support:

  1. Hydrologic modeling of Milk River and Souris River for historical, current and future streamflow and inundation conditions.
  2. Modeling and assessment of nutrient flux into the Great Lakes, which requires accessing and integrating water quality data from multiple agencies

    Advantages of creating this system in an OGC Pilot Project include:

    • Management by a neutral organization
    • Use of a mature and trusted vendor-neutral process led by experienced administrative and technical project managers
    • Design and development best practices (iterative, agile approach to building a SOA-based system)
    • Inclusive process, with open, international call for participation from potential sponsors, and recruiting of industry's best and brightest to staff the development team.

      CHISP-1 will exercise OGC encoding and service standards, including the OGC WaterML 2.0 Encoding Standard, the OGC Sensor Observation Service (SOS) standard and others.

      CHISP-1 offers many benefits. In addition to leveraging the large body of existing related activities, those activities, and others like them around the world, will be enhanced by and benefit from the pilot outcomes. By pooling resources to accomplish a shared objective, the sponsors and participants in CHISP-1 reduce their development risks and leverage their investment. In addition to identifying and clarifying what is possible, the pilot will identify the key technical and non-technical barriers to continued progress in sharing and integrating hydrologic and climatic information. Because it is an international project with broad industry participation, it will promote understanding and strengthen ties within the existing hydro-climatic community.

      Overview

      The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) to solicit proposals in response to requirements for the OGC Geo4NIEM Project. The Geo4NIEM Initiative will result in recommendations to enhance the geospatial capabilities within the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM). Sponsors have identified specific Information Exchange Packages (IEPs) from Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Justice/Law Enforcement domain, and the Maritime domain as representative examples for investigation in this initiative.

      The RFQ/CFP is available below. Deadline for submitting questions on the RFQ/CFP is 5pm EST on 21 February 2013. Responses are due by 5 pm EST on 4 March 2013.

      The Point of Contact is Lew Leinenweber: techdesk [at] opengeospatial.org.

      Geo4NIEM Initiative sponsors are:

      • Program Manager – Information Sharing Environment (PM-ISE)
      • National Information Exchange Model – Program Management Office (NIEM PMO)

      The focus of Geo4NIEM project will be to address requirements in the context of the following information exchange domain areas:

      Justice/Law Enforcement. The Justice/Law Enforcement domain in NIEM is defined by the Global Justice XML Data Model (Global JXDM). The Global Justice XML Data Model (Global JXDM) is an XML-based framework that enables the US justice and public safety communities to effectively share information at all levels.

      Maritime Domain Awareness. The Maritime domain supports the effective understanding of anything associated with global maritime that could impact the United States' security, safety, economy, or environment. NIEM facilitates this understanding through effective, timely sharing of vital, secure information among many key partners by representing vessels, people, cargo, and maritime locations and activities.

      The Geo4NIEM Project has been organized to address specific functional requirements to meet the following objectives:

      • Develop recommendations for the inclusion and standard use of embedded GML with NIEM IEP documents (IEPDs).
      • Develop recommendations for the standardized use of Naming and Design Rules and the use of adaptors (e.g. NIEM wrapper for GML).
      • Test and demonstrate use of a standardized embedded GML and adaptors within NIEM IEPDs.
      • Develop Architecture documentation and a fact sheet for the use of embedded GML and adaptors for use with NIEM IEPDs.
      • Develop Recommendations for the inclusion of a Geospatial Domain within NIEM.
