Data Quality DWG

The mission of the DQ DWG to establish a forum for describing an interoperable framework or model for OGC Quality Assurance measures and Web Services to enable access and sharing of high quality geospatial information, improve data analysis and ultimately influence policy decisions.

The WG will attempt to define a framework and a grammar for the certification and communication of spatial DQ. This method to describe and communicate data quality measures will reference, but not be limited by, a number of categories:

Architecture DWG

The Architecture DWG considers overarching architectural issues that are germane to multiple OGC(r) standards, including mechanisms for describing and invoking services in a heterogeneous distributed network. A key focus for 2015 and 2016 is defining best practices and encoding rules for using JSON and GeoJSON in OGC standards.

OGC network Common Data Form (netCDF) standards suite

netCDF is a set of software libraries and self-describing, machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data. The conventions for climate and forecast (CF) metadata are designed to promote the processing and sharing of netCDF files. The conventions define metadata that provide a definitive description of what the data represents, and the spatial and temporal properties of the data.

The OGC CF-netCDF standard consists of a suite of standards that support encoding of digital geospatial information representing space/ti...

CRS Well Known Text SWG

1.    OGC CRS WKT SWG

2.    Purpose of this Standards Working Group (SWG)

The purpose of this Standards Working Group is to progress the Well Known Text (WKT) representation of Coordinate Reference System (CRS) definitions to the state of an adopted OGC standard and an  identical ISO International Standard. This will be achieved by processing comments received during the public comment period and ensuring that the standard is consistent with the OGC and ISO TC211 business plans. The work will be conducted jointly with ISO TC211.

3.    Scope of Work

Compliance Interoperability & Testing Evaluation (CITE) SC

The CITE Subcommittee provides guidance to and advise the OGC staff on the operation of the Compliance and Interoperability Testing and Evaluation Program (CITE) of the Consortium. The Sub committee provides a forum for an open, consensus discussion regarding approaches and issues related to conformance and interoperability testing becoming an integral component in the OGC standards process.
