On 2 February 2012, the OGC began the OGC Web Services, Phase 9 (OWS-9) Testbed process with a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) to solicit proposals in response to requirements. 10 sponsors provided requirements, a testbed plan was developed, and 45 technology provider participants worked together for 8 months developing and testing interoperability solutions to meet those requirements.
The Geo4NIEM Project was organized to address specific functional requirements to meet the following objectives:
New Dates for RFQ Submissions to Participate (and Kickoff) for Testbed 12 Non-Aviation Threads
There will be two separate RFQ submission deadlines and kickoff dates for the Testbed 12 threads. Summary:
Testbed. The 2000 Geospatial Fusion Testbed addressed standard ways of "fusing" disparate kinds of data into one spatial framework. Such data include text with embedded place names as well as video, sound, and photos whose metadata refer to "place." Through Geospatial Fusion, they can be geo-indexed, integrated with other spatial data, and shared across the Internet. The Testbed mainly addressed text, but OGC's specifications will accommodate the other kinds of data.

Google submitted KML (formerly Keyhole Markup Language) to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) to be evolved within the OGC consensus process with the following goal: KML Version 2.2 has been adopted as an OGC implementation standard. Future versions may be harmonized with relevant OGC standards that comprise the OGC standards baseline. There are four objectives for this standards work:
- That there be one international standard language for expressing geographic annotation and visualization on existing or future web-based online and mobile maps (2d) and earth browsers (3d)....
