The Strategic Member Advisory Committee is conceived to be a permanent committee within the OGC organization, designed specifically to provide Strategic Members the opportunity to participate in the strategic planning processes of the Consortium, and to support Consortium operations aimed at achieving the corporation's mission as defined in the bylaws.
The OGC membership process is operationally organized into groups and subgroups, each group having a specified role and level of responsibility. There are three major groups, called Committees: The Technical, the Planning and the Strategic Management Advisory Committees.
The Technical Committee is responsible for all aspects of the formal consensus OGC specification process. This includes:
The OGC Planning Committee is granted authority to operate by the OGC Bylaws. Principal Membership is provided for organizations that wish to participate in the planning and management of the Consortium's technology development process.
The Planning Committee has ultimate responsibility for approving Technical Committee recommendations for the adoption and release of OGC standards, and for Specification Program planning.
The OpenLS Testbed was sponsored by Hutchison 3G UK, Sun Microsystems, In-Q-Tel, ESRI with SignalSoft, and Oracle with Webraska.
This testbed yielded Interoperability Program Reports (IPRs) that have become approved OpenGIS® Specifications in support of interoperable Location Based Services to be made available through mobile terminals. The OpenLS Testbed ended with a successful multi-vendor, specification-based mobile demonstration of these interfaces in action.
The Oceans Science Interoperability Experiment will consolidate a portion of the Ocean-Observing community on its understanding of various OGC specifications, solidify demonstrations for Ocean Science application areas, harden software implementations, and produce a candidate OGC Best Practices document that can be used to inform the broader ocean-observing community. To achieve these goals, the Oceans IE will engage the OGC membership to assure that any community recommendations coming from the Oceans group will properly leverage the OGC specifications.
This project is for the Concept Definition (CD) phase of a Spatial Data Quality Certification Initiative in OGC’s Interoperability Program. The main outcome of the CD Phase will be a Feasibility Report defining the Initiative. The Feasibility Report will be used to recruit additional sponsors for the execution phase of the Initiative.
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)
Download Charter documentModern simulations used for individual, crew, and collective training and mission rehearsal are increasingly networked together to compose rich federations of virtual and constructive simulations. 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
