Coverages DWG

Chair(s):

Baumann, Peter (Jacobs University Bremen GmbH)
Meissl, Stephan (EOX IT Services GmbH)

Group Description:

The central purpose of the Coverages DWG is to promote and oversee development of OGC Implementation Specifications for exploitation of, and accessing, coverage data, including images and other grid coverages. Secondary purposes include promoting use of these specifications, and refining the OGC Abstract Specification as may be needed to better support these specifications.

Object Domain Modeling Support (ODMS) Initiative

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 differently. The OGC worked on the initiative with the CADD/GIS Center for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment (CADD/GIS Center). A UML model for Utilities was developed and delivered and is available from the CADD/GIS Center.

GeoAPI 3.0 SWG

Chair(s):

Desruisseaux, Martin (GEOMATYS)

Group Description:

1. Purpose

The GeoAPI Standard Working Group (SWG) aims to create the GeoAPI 3.0 Standard which will define a set of Java language interfaces along with an associated test suite, to provide a standardized, programming language level realization of some core OGC specifications. These interfaces will facilitate the creation of accurate, coherent, interoperable, and verifiable implementations of those OGC standards.

HDWG Surface Water IE

SUMMARY

This interoperability experiment will advance the development of WaterML 2.0, test its use with various OGC service standards (SOS, WFS, WMS and CSW). It will also contribute to the development of a hydrology domain feature model and vocabularies, which are essential for interoperability in the hydrology domain.

GeoMobile and Internet of Things

Background

Access to the Internet will predominantly be from mobile devices including smart phones and machine-to-machine interactions.  Most information exchanged in mobile internet will include spatial components.  

In support of OGC members and society, this OGC Interoperability Program initiative aims to help develop the consensus standards infrastructure necessary to achieve the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of location information in mobile applications worldwide.

OGC Web Services Context Document (OWS Context)

This standard describes the use cases, requirements and conceptual model for the OWS Context encoding standard. The goal of this standard is to provide a core model, which is extended and encoded as defined in extensions to this standard. A ‘context document’ specifies a fully configured service set which can be exchanged (with a consistent interpretation) among clients supporting the standard. The OGC Web Services Context Document (OWS Context) was created to allow a set of configured information resources (service set) to be passed between applications primarily as a collection of serv...
