Federated Earth Observation Pilot

The Federated Earth Observation Missions (FedEO) Pilot will provide a broad international venue for operational prototyping and demonstration of Earth Observation (EO) requirements as defined by the European Space Agency (ESA) and by other OGC members. OGC seeks additional sponsorship for complimentary requirements. (ESA was the only FedEO sponsor.) The FedEO Pilot will apply and refine OGC specifications relevant to EO. OGC will release a formal Call for Participation (CFP) to encourage broad international participation.


1.    Open GeoSMS SWG
OGC Open GeoSMS 1.0 Standard Working Group
2.    Purpose of this Standards Working Group
The purpose of this Standard Working Group is to use the OGC RFC process to move the
                                OGC 09-142r4 OGC Candidate Open GeoSMS Standard
as an OGC adopted standard.
The candidate standard is currently an OGC "Discussion Paper".
The scope of the candidate standard is to define the exchangeable SMS format to exchange GPS information for different LBS devices or applications.


1. ARML 2.0 Standards Working Group

ARML (Augmented Reality Markup Language) 1.0 is a descriptive, XML based data format, specifically targeted for mobile Augmented Reality (AR) applications. ARML focuses on mapping georeferenced Points of Interest (POIs) and their metadata, as well as mapping data for the POI content providers publishing the POIs to the AR application. ARML was defined in late 2009 by the creators of the Wikitude World Browser to enable developers to create content for Augmented Reality Browsers.

Geospatial One-Stop - Transportation Pilot

In this pilot project, OGC partnered with the US Department of Transportation (Bureau of Transportation Statistics) and FGDC to test the use of data content models for practical application by cooperating communities, specifically focusing on Road Transportation data. OGC tested and demonstrated the use of FGDC's Road Transportation Data Content Standard with software products that employ OpenGIS® Specifications such as Web Feature Service (WFS) and Geography Markup Language (GML).
