GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery Encoding

The OpenGIS® GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery Encoding Standard defines the means by which the OpenGIS® Geography Markup Language (GML) Standard [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/gml] is used within JPEG 2000 [www.jpeg.org/jpeg2000/] images for geographic imagery. The standard also provides packaging mechanisms for including GML within JPEG 2000 data files and specific GML application schemas to support the encoding of images within JPEG 2000 data files. JPEG 2000 is a wavelet-based image compression standard that provides the ability to include XML data for description of the ...

Observations and Measurements

This standard specifies an XML implementation for the OGC and ISO Observations and Measurements (O&M) conceptual model (OGC Observations and Measurements v2.0 also published as ISO/DIS 19156), including a schema for Sampling Features. This encoding is an essential dependency for the OGC Sensor Observation Service (SOS) Interface Standard. More specifically, this standard defines XML schemas for observations, and for features involved in sampling when making observations. These provide document models for the exchange of information describing observation acts and their results, both within an...

Climate Challenge - Integration Plugfest - 2009

Climate Challenge Integration Plugfest (CCIP) 

"Ensuring that high-quality climate data records are collected, retained and made accessible for use by current and future generations of scientists and decision-makers is a key objective of this Plan. As a result, investment in the data management and analysis components of the system is as important as the acquisition of the data." -- Implementation Plan for the Global Observing System for Climate in Support of the UNFCC, 2004

HDWG Groundwater 2 IE

This groundwater interoperability experiment (GW2IE) will develop and test 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 will produce an engineering report in preparation for movement to an OGC data specification subsequent to the GW2IE.
