The ODMS Initiative developed a domain model for utilities as a vehicle to achieve semantic interoperability within and across information communities. The model shows how users within the utilities arena and those in related disciplines such as engineering and public safety can more easily share geographic data, even if they choose to name features differen...
As customers in the geospatial industry prepare to modernize their systems based on OGC Web Services, they will require proof of products' conformance to OpenGIS® Specifications in order to achieve interoperability. Validating conformance to an OpenGIS® Specification means verifying that a software product has implemented the specification cor...
The Web Mapping Testbed Phase 1 (WMT-1) was OGC's first Interoperability Initiative, and it marks an important milestone in the history of geoprocessing. WMT-1 yielded interface prototypes vendors used to enable users to immediately overlay and operate on views of thematic map data from different online sources (subject to limitations of the data), regardles...

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 Web Mapping Testbed Phase 2 (WMT-2) expanded on work done in WMT-1. It resulted in more federal data coming on-line using WMT protocols and laid a foundation for OGC Pilot Projects that tested and demonstrated the new capabilities. WMT-2 resulted in improvements to GetFeatureInfo, GetMap, and GetCapabilities, the basic elements of the Web Map Server Inte...
Testbed. GOS-PI yielded a working prototype standards-based portal for geospatial information discovery and access that is expected to be the model for the GOS project (http://www.geo-one-stop.gov/) portal. The prototype was the basis for the "OpenGIS Portal Reference Architecture, a Community Guide to Implementing Standards-Based Geospatial Portals" (pendin...

The First-Ever OGC Plugfest

The First-Ever OGC Plugfest was held on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 in Southampton, UK in connection with the 50th OGC Technical Committee Meeting. This plugfest concentrated on testing interoperability between clients and servers that are intended to comply with Web Map Service 1.1.1 and Web Feature Service 1.0....
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 wit...
Testbed. After the events of September 11, the OWS 1.1 sponsors agreed to align OWS 1.1 to address interoperability challenges defined by officials in New York City. The OWS 1.1 demonstration scenario developed by the sponsors challenged participating technology developers and integrators to implement interoperability capabilities that address specific criti...

Initial Plan

This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will address several important steps towards the development of a Geospatial Semantic Web (GSW), where discovery, query, and consumption of geospatial content are based on formal semantic specification. Many pieces of the GSW puzzle have been worked extensively in the last several years; this expe...
