Testbed 12 Sponsors have documented interoperability requirements and objectives for this initiative. Organizations selected to participate will develop solutions based on the Sponsors’ use cases, requirements and scenarios, which are described in detail in the Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ). Participant solutions will implement existing OGC standards as well as new prototype interface and encoding specifications introduced or developed during the testbed.
The Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Domain Working Group develops strategies for encoding of earth coordinate reference systems and transformations between coordinate reference systems. Also addresses units of measure. The group has worked consistanty on the joint OGC-ISO Document 19111 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates and on ISO 19162 Well Known Text for Coordinate Reference Systems.
The group provides a focal point for related standards working groups and for managing issues with the standards and the coordinate reference systems domain.
