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)

Standards have been previously developed and widely adopted for the network protocols and information exchanged in simulation federations, but the synthetic environment (including geospatial content) within which simulation learners are immersed has traditionally been locally generated
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.
OGC’s Interoperability Program is a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC’s Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release. In OGC’s Interoperability Initiatives, an international team of technology providers’ work together to solve specific geo-processing interoperability problems posed by the initiative’s sponsoring organizations.
