GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information.
This groundwater interoperability experiment (GW2IE) developed and tested the GroundWater Markup Language 2, by harmonizing and advancing existing modeling initiatives such as: GWML1, relevant EU-INSPIRE models (Geology-hydrogeology, Environmental monitoring facilities), GeoSciML, and others. It produced an engineering report in preparation for movement to an OGC data specification subsequent to the GW2IE.
WaterML 2.0 is a standard information model for the representation of water observations data, with the intent of allowing the exchange of such data sets across information systems. Through the use of existing OGC standards, it aims at being an interoperable exchange format that may be re-used to address a range of exchange requirements, some of which are described later in this document.
OGC’s Climatology-Hydrology Information Sharing Pilot, Phase 1 (CHISP-1) project was conducted as a Pilot initiative, a collaborative effort that applies technology elements from the OGC Technical Baseline and other (non-OGC) technologies to address Sponsor requirements and scenarios.
What is it? An inter-disciplinary, inter-agency and international virtual observatory system for water resources information from observations and forecasts in the U.S. and Canada, building on current networks and capabilities, designed to support these functions:
Key objectives of these use cases are:
Why do it now? Improved capabilities for sharing, accessing, and integrating hydrologic and climatic data have been identified as a critical need for some time. We are at a point in time at which an opportunity exists to make large steps forward by leveraging existing resources – including data portals, standards, technologies, activities, and expertise – to develop an initial operational capability for the system described above.

The Energy & Utilities Domain Working Group will focus on the global energy and utilities community, which is defined as individuals and organizations engaged in the geospatial aspects of the planning, delivery, operations, reliability and ongoing management of electric, gas, oil and water services throughout the world.
Access to the Internet will predominantly be from mobile devices including smart phones and machine-to-machine interactions. Most information exchanged in mobile internet will include spatial components.
In support of OGC members and society, this OGC Interoperability Program initiative aims to help develop the consensus standards infrastructure necessary to achieve the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of location information in mobile applications worldwide.
