The Geo4NIEM Project was organized to address specific functional requirements to meet the following objectives:
MilOps Geospatial Interoperability Experiment (MOGIE)
Gesquiere, Gilles (LiRiS)
Coors, Volker (Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart)
3D Portrayal v1.0 SWG
Purpose of the Standards Working Group
Ryden, Keith (Esri)
Lott, Roger (International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP))
Kryla-Straszewska, Lucyna (International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP))
1. Key Activities.
The DWG will focus on the following activities:
1. Reviewing the current LandXML schema and determining how best to continue to support the existing users and engage with them.
2. Assessing the current industry support for the LandXML schema and whether multiple, incompatible versions of the schema have evolved.
3. Investigating how to best incorporate LandXML into the OGC standards framework, including identifying places where there may be common elements in existing standards such as CityGML.
4. Investigating the possibility of moving the LandXML schema into LandGML.
COBWEB will leverage the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR). Concentrating initially on the Welsh Dyfi Biosphere Reserve, we will develop a citizens’ observatory framework, and then validate the work within the context of the UK National Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and internationally, within the WNBR; specifically, within Greek and German Reserves.

GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information.
This groundwater interoperability experiment (GW2IE) developed and tested the GroundWater Markup Language 2, by harmonizing and advancing existing modeling initiatives such as: GWML1, relevant EU-INSPIRE models (Geology-hydrogeology, Environmental monitoring facilities), GeoSciML, and others. It produced an engineering report in preparation for movement to an OGC data specification subsequent to the GW2IE.
WaterML 2.0 is a standard information model for the representation of water observations data, with the intent of allowing the exchange of such data sets across information systems. Through the use of existing OGC standards, it aims at being an interoperable exchange format that may be re-used to address a range of exchange requirements, some of which are described later in this document.
