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).

Sensor Planning Service (SPS)

The OpenGIS® Sensor Planning Service Interface Standard (SPS) defines interfaces for queries that provide information about the capabilities of a sensor and how to task the sensor. The standard is designed to support queries that have the following purposes: to determine the feasibility of a sensor planning request; to submit and reserve/commit such a request; to inquire about the status of such a request; to update or cancel such a request; and to request information about other OGC Web services that provide access to the data collected by the requested task. This is one of the OGC Sensor Web...

Sensor Model Language (SensorML)

The primary focus of the Sensor Model Language (SensorML) is to provide a robust and semantically-tied means of defining processes and processing components associated with the measurement and post-measurement transformation of observations. This includes sensors and actuators as well as computational processes applied pre- and postmeasurement. The main objective is to enable interoperability, first at the syntactic level and later at the semantic level (by using ontologies and semantic mediation), so that sensors and processes can be better understood by machines, utilized automatically...
