White Papers

A white paper is an OGC member approved publication released by the OGC to the Public that states a position on one or more technical considerations or other subjects that are germane to the work of the OGC, often including a high-level explanation of a standards based architecture or framework of a solution. A White Paper often explains the results or conclusions of research. A White Paper is not an official position of the OGC.

Military Pilot Project Testbed, Phase 1

OGC’s Military Pilot Project, Phase 1, sponsored by the US Army Engineering and Development Center (ERDC), was a collaborative effort that contributed to the operational validation of interoperable commercial geoprocessing products for the defense and intelligence domain. MPP-1 addressed the problem that no single vendor’s commercial products meet all the diverse requirements of defense geoprocessing, and the diverse products from different vendors that might meet these requirements don’t, without OGC's standards, interoperate.

GML in JPEG 2000 Interoperability Experiment

This Encoding Interoperability Experiment (IE) will implement a number of prototype GMLJP2 codecs based on the specification described in the OGC Discussion Paper "GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery". The purpose of the IE will be to confirm that the specification will support the requirements of geospatially related imagery over the Internet, and to improve the specification if it does not support these requirements.

The IE will attempt to address some of the following experiments around the use of GML in JPEG 2000 for Geospatial Imagery:
