1. OWS-3 Overview
Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, OWS-3 participants worked collaboratively to extend the OGC baseline to enable an interoperable, multi-source decision support environment. The work addressed a rich set of requirements provided by OWS-3's sponsors. Sponsors include: BAE Systems, IONIC, GeoConnections (Canada), Lockheed Martin, MAGIC Services
The Earth Systems Science (ESS) DWG engages in outreach and dialog with the Natural Resources and Environment information community to demonstrate the value of OGC processes and standards, and to provide a point of input for new requirements.
Current focus of the group includes:
The work to be performed by the OGC is in support of the Federal Geographic Data Committee Secretariat, Geographic Information Office, USGS. OGC will provide the following services designed to define and validate an inter-agency enterprise architecture applicable to a subset of US federal and non-federal organizations (and extensible to other organizations).
The GeoBI Ad Hoc has been renamed to GeoBI DWG upon approval during the December 2011 TC/PC meetings.
Business intelligence (BI) aims to support better business decision-making using computer-based techniques used for identifying, extracting and analyzing business data. Geospatial Business Intelligence (GeoBI) adds geospatial technology to BI.
