Web Processing Service 2.0 SWG


Purpose of this Standards Working Group

The purpose of this Standards Working Group (SWG) is to evaluate and work the proposed change requests assigned to the Web Processing Service 1.0.0. It will achieve this objective by evaluating and processing the Change Requests listed in Section 3 and ensuring that the standard is consistent with the OGC Processes, OGC standards baseline and the OGC business plan.

GeoMobile and Internet of Things


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.

IMIS - Virtual USA

Virtual USA becomes the de facto national standard for sharing emergency management information across levels of government and the private sector, allowing all users and organizations to use their own systems to share information securely with all others, anywhere in the United States and across international borders, controlling what information is shared, with whom, for how long.

OGC Standards

Below is a list of OGC Implementation Standards.

Implementation Standards are different from the Abstract Specification. They are written for a more technical audience and detail the interface structure between software components. An interface specification is considered to be at the implementation level of detail if, when implemented by two different software engineers in ignorance of each other, the resulting components plug and play with each other at that interface.

Open Location Services Testbed, Phase 1.1

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.
