On 2 February 2012, the OGC began the OGC Web Services, Phase 9 (OWS-9) Testbed process with a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) to solicit proposals in response to requirements. 10 sponsors provided requirements, a testbed plan was developed, and 45 technology provider participants worked together for 8 months developing and testing interoperability solutions to meet those requirements.
The purpose of the Open Modelling Interface (OpenMI) is to enable the runtime exchange of data between process simulation models and also between models and other modelling tools such as databases and analytical and visualization applications. Its creation has been driven by the need to understand how processes interact and to predict the likely outcomes of those interactions under given conditions. A key design aim has been to bring about interoperability between independently developed modelling components, where those components may originate from any discipline or supplier. The ultimate...
Most sensor networks require careful manual installation and configuration by technicians to assure that software components are properly associated with the physical instruments that they represent. Instrument driver software, configuration files, and metadata describing the instrument and its ...
This project is completed and the final report has been published by IPIECA. The resport has also been approved as an OGC Best Practice.
This report provides recommended practice for GIS/mapping in support of oil spill response and for the use of GIS technology and geospatial information in forming a “Common Operating Picture” to support management of the response.

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:
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).
