Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS) Standard

The OpenGIS® Web Coverage Service Interface Standard (WCS) defines a protocol-independent language for the extraction, processing, and analysis of multi-dimensional gridded coverages (see: http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/glossary/c ) representing sensor, image, or statistics data. Services implementing this language provide access to original or derived sets of geospatial coverage information, in forms that are useful for client-side rendering, input into scientific models, and other client applications. Further information about WPCS can be found at the WCPS Service page of the OGC Netw...

Ocean Science Interoperability Experiment II


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.

Earth Systems Science DWG

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:

GeoAPI 3.0 SWG

1. Purpose

The GeoAPI Standard Working Group (SWG) aims to create the GeoAPI 3.0 Standard which will define a set of Java language interfaces along with an associated test suite, to provide a standardized, programming language level realization of some core OGC specifications. These interfaces will facilitate the creation of accurate, coherent, interoperable, and verifiable implementations of those OGC standards.

O&M 2.0 SWG


1.    Observations and Measurements v2 Standards Working Group


2.    Purpose of this Standards Working Group

The purpose of the O&M v2 SWG is to consider revisions to the OpenGIS® Observations and Measurements Implementation Standard..

ebXML RegRep SWG

ebXML RegRep SWG


Purpose of this Standards Working Group

The purpose of the OGC ebXML RegRep SWG is to develop an OGC standard defining an extension to OASIS ebXML RegRep supporting registration, management and retrieval of geospatial and related non-geospatial information items based on well-defined registration processes, such as defined in, but not restricted to ISO 19135.
