Smyth, Carl Stephen (Open Site Plan)

Group Description:

1. OLS v1.3 SWG

2. Purpose of the Standards Working Group

The purpose of this Standards Working Group is to extend the OLS 1.2 specification with navigation capabilities.

3. Scope of Work

The scope of work consists of the following:

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...



Portele, Clemens (interactive instruments GmbH)

Group Description:

1. Geography Markup Language 3.3 SWG (GML SWG)


2. Purpose of this Standards Working Group

The purpose of the GML SWG is to revise the OpenGIS® Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard. The standard is also published by ISO as ISO 19136:2007.

Web Processing Service

The OpenGIS® Web Processing Service (WPS) Interface Standard provides rules for standardizing how inputs and outputs (requests and responses) for geospatial processing services, such as polygon overlay. The standard also defines how a client can request the execution of a process, and how the output from the process is handled. It defines an interface that facilitates the publishing of geospatial processes and clients’ discovery of and binding to those processes. The data required by the WPS can be delivered across a network or they can be available at the server.


1. Purpose of the Standards Working Group

The purpose of GMLJP2 v1.1 Standards Working Group is to move the existing GMLJP2 version 1.0.0 standard through a revision process. The SWG will process impacts to this standard from updates of dependent standards, address omissions from the initial standard, process comments from OWS5, and assess future ...

OGC Architecture Board - OAB


Percivall, George (Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.)

Group Description:

The OAB is a forum to discuss the OGC-wide standards architecture.  The OAB considers architecture consistency and life cycle management of the OGC standards baseline. The OAB evaluates current technology issues and identify gaps in the architecture that need to be responded to by the Membership.   The OAB provides guidance and recommendations to the TC and the PC.

 OAB Roles and Responsibilities:

Group Description:

1. OGC KML 2.3 SWG

2. Purpose of this Standards Working Group

The purpose of this SWG is to develop a first minor revision (V2.3) to the OGC® KML 2.2 Implementation Standard (OGC 07-147r2) to accomodate known issues and extensions identified in formal OGC Change Request Proposals (CRPs) and tested through implementation experience. The SWG will also make corresponding revisions to the companion OGC® KML 2.2 Abstract Test Suite Implementaiton Standard (07-134r2).
