The Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Domain Working Group develops strategies for encoding of earth coordinate reference systems and transformations between coordinate reference systems. Also addresses units of measure. The group has worked consistanty on the joint OGC-ISO Document 19111 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates and on ISO 19162 Well Known Text for Coordinate Reference Systems.
The group provides a focal point for related standards working groups and for managing issues with the standards and the coordinate reference systems domain.
OGC’s Military Pilot Project, Phase 1, sponsored by the US Army Engineering and Development Center (ERDC), was a collaborative effort that contributed to the operational validation of interoperable commercial geoprocessing products for the defense and intelligence domain. MPP-1 addressed the problem that no single vendor’s commercial products meet all the diverse requirements of defense geoprocessing, and the diverse products from different vendors that might meet these requirements don’t, without OGC's standards, interoperate.
The Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) Pilot, sponsored by GeoConnections Canada, was an initiative of OGC's Interoperability Program to test the feasibility of using open, standards-based technology to improve the management and dissemination of geospatial data in Canada.
