Simple Features for CORBA

The three OpenGIS® Simple Features Implementation Specifications (one each for OLE/COM, CORBA, and SQL) define interfaces that enable transparent access to geographic data held in heterogeneous processing systems on distributed computing platforms.

The Simple Feature Specification application programming interfaces (APIs) provide for publishing, storage, access, and simple operations on Simple Features (point, line, polygon, multi-point, etc). The purpose of these specifications is to describe interfaces to allow GIS software engineers to develop applications that expose funct...

Conformance & Interoperability Test & Evaluation, Phase 1

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 correctly. Validation involves testing the software interface for response and behavior outlined in the specification. The Conformance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE) Initiative
