The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) conducted a series of tests that examined the interoperability, suitability and performance of National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) Profiles provided by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) of four OGC Standards, Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Coverage Service (WCS), and Catalog Service (CAT). In the study, vendors, users, and other interested parties conducted Technology Integration Experiments (TIEs) and mutually refined clients, services, interfaces and protocols in the context of a hands-on engineeri
The work to be performed by the OGC is in support of the Federal Geographic Data Committee Secretariat, Geographic Information Office, USGS. OGC will provide the following services designed to define and validate an inter-agency enterprise architecture applicable to a subset of US federal and non-federal organizations (and extensible to other organizations).
