The primary role of the OGC Naming Authority (OGC-NA) is to ensure an orderly process for assigning URIs for OGC resources, such as OGC documents, standards, XML namespaces, ontologies.
The Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) Common Data Model Encoding Standard defines low level data models for exchanging sensor related data between nodes of the OGC® Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) framework. These models allow applications and/or servers to structure, encode and transmit sensor datasets in a self describing and semantically enabled way.
SWE Common 1.0 was defined in the OGC SensorML 1.0 Standard available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/sensorml.
1. Key Activities.
The DWG will focus on the following activities:
1. Reviewing the current LandXML schema and determining how best to continue to support the existing users and engage with them.
2. Assessing the current industry support for the LandXML schema and whether multiple, incompatible versions of the schema have evolved.
3. Investigating how to best incorporate LandXML into the OGC standards framework, including identifying places where there may be common elements in existing standards such as CityGML.
4. Investigating the possibility of moving the LandXML schema into LandGML.

The mission of the University Domain Working Group (UDWG) will be to coordinate the common interests of OGC academic and research members in the following areas:
The OpenLS Testbed yielded Interoperability Program Reports (IPRs) that have become approved OpenGIS® Specifications in support of interoperable Location Based Services to be made available through mobile terminals. The OpenLS Testbed ended with a successful multi-vendor, specification-based mobile demonstration of these interfaces in action.
Testbed Sponsors included Hutchison 3G (UK), Oracle, Webraska (France), ESRI (US), Sun Microsystems (US) and In-Q-Tel (US).
