This interoperability experiment will advance the development of WaterML 2.0 and test its use in a forecasting context with various OGC service standards (SOS, SES, WFS, WMS and WCS). It will also contribute to a co-operation with the Met-Ocean domain working group. Where relevant to the forecasting context, it will contribute to the development and evaluation of a hydrology domain feature model and vocabularies, which are essential for interoperability in the hydrology domain, although these are not the main focus for the IE.
The MOSIA consortium group (MOdeling Support with standards for Information and Architecture models applied to ATM) is a consortium of organisations with a background in Information management and Information, Service and Architecture modeling from a set of standardisaton organisations, in particular OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium), ISO/TC211, INSPIRE and OMG (Object Management Group). The MOSIA group is led by SINTEF and consist of the following partners:
· Snowflake Software
· Open Geospatial Consortium (OGCE)
· No Magic
· Institute for Geoinformatics (IfGI), Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU)
· Managed AIS (M-AIS)
This proposed OGC Interoperability Experiment (IE) is intended to create and test a candidate specification for a Sensor Alert Service (SAS). This work is part of the ongoing OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) effort.
