1. Purpose of the Standards Working Group
The purpose of GMLJP2  Standards Working Group is to move the existing GMLJP2 version 1.0.0 standard through a revision process. The SWG will process impacts to this standard from updates of dependent standards, address omissions from the initial standard, process comments from OWS5, and assess future work items for the initial standard. The work of this SWG will also ensure alignment with all OGC processes, the OGC standards baseline, and OGC's business plan.
2. Scope of Work

Geosemantics DWG

The scope of the Geosemantics DWG is any aspect of conceptual modeling and formal representation of geospatial knowledge which advances the the geospatial interoperability mission of OGC. A particular focus will be the adoption or development of tools and methods in support of these activities.

It is the mission of the Geosemantics DWG to establish an interoperable and actionable semantic framework for representing the geospatial knowledge domains of information communities as well as mediating between them.

Sensor Planning Service (SPS)

The OpenGIS® Sensor Planning Service Interface Standard (SPS) defines interfaces for queries that provide information about the capabilities of a sensor and how to task the sensor. The standard is designed to support queries that have the following purposes: to determine the feasibility of a sensor planning request; to submit and reserve/commit such a request; to inquire about the status of such a request; to update or cancel such a request; and to request information about other OGC Web services that provide access to the data collected by the requested task. This is one of the OGC Sensor Web...

Sensor Model Language (SensorML)

The primary focus of the Sensor Model Language (SensorML) is to provide a robust and semantically-tied means of defining processes and processing components associated with the measurement and post-measurement transformation of observations. This includes sensors and actuators as well as computational processes applied pre- and postmeasurement. The main objective is to enable interoperability, first at the syntactic level and later at the semantic level (by using ontologies and semantic mediation), so that sensors and processes can be better understood by machines, utilized automatically...

OpenGIS Transducer Markup Language (TML) Encoding Specification

*THIS STANDARD HAS BEEN RETIRED* The OpenGIS® Transducer Markup Language Encoding Standard (TML) is an application and presentation layer communication protocol for exchanging live streaming or archived data to (i.e. control data) and/or sensor data from any sensor system. A sensor system can be one or more sensors, receivers, actuators, transmitters, and processes. A TML client can be capable of handling any TML enabled sensor system without prior knowledge of that system.

Geo Rights Management (GeoRM) DWG

NOTE: This group was formerly the Geospatial Digital Rights Management (GeoDRM) Working Group.



A great deal of work has been done in the area of data ownership and rights management. This work is of interest to the Geospatial community in that many geospatial data providers need to manage or control who has access ...
