Simple Features for OLE/COM

The three OpenGIS® Simple Features Implementation Specifications (one each for OLE/COM, CORBA, and SQL) define interfaces that enable transparent access to geographic data held in heterogeneous processing systems on distributed computing platforms.

The Simple Feature Specification application programming interfaces (APIs) provide for publishing, storage, access, and simple operations on Simple Features (point, line, polygon, multi-point, etc).

White Papers

A white paper is an OGC member approved publication released by the OGC to the Public that states a position on one or more technical considerations or other subjects that are germane to the work of the OGC, often including a high-level explanation of a standards based architecture or framework of a solution.

Suggest a conference for OGC to support

Every year executive staff members from the OGC attend and participate in many events around the world. These events generally focus on geospatial and location issues, but as the number of OGC Domain Working Groups grows and the reach of OGC standards expands, our standards are becoming relevant in a wider range of domains. We need input and guidance from OGC members regarding industry events that best address member needs based on the usefulness and relevance of OGC standards.

If you would like to suggest an event for OGC to consider, please complete the OGC Conference Suggestion form below. Please note that the OGC does not fund non-OGC events, but sponsors events by providing presenters, allowing use of our logo and offering our global marketing reach to promote events. OGC staff time is subject to availability and priority is given to international events where we can most efficiently deliver our message about the value of OGC standards and OGC membership.

Citizen Observatory Web (COBWEB)

COBWEB will leverage the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR). Concentrating initially on the Welsh Dyfi Biosphere Reserve, we will develop a citizens’ observatory framework, and then validate the work within the context of the UK National Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and internationally, within the WNBR; specifically, within Greek and German Reserves.
