1.    Open GeoSMS SWG
OGC Open GeoSMS 1.0 Standard Working Group
2.    Purpose of this Standards Working Group
The purpose of this Standard Working Group is to use the OGC RFC process to move the
                                OGC 09-142r4 OGC Candidate Open GeoSMS Standard
as an OGC adopted standard.
The candidate standard is currently an OGC "Discussion Paper".
The scope of the candidate standard is to define the exchangeable SMS format to exchange GPS information for different LBS devices or applications.


1. ARML 2.0 Standards Working Group

ARML (Augmented Reality Markup Language) 1.0 is a descriptive, XML based data format, specifically targeted for mobile Augmented Reality (AR) applications. ARML focuses on mapping georeferenced Points of Interest (POIs) and their metadata, as well as mapping data for the POI content providers publishing the POIs to the AR application. ARML was defined in late 2009 by the creators of the Wikitude World Browser to enable developers to create content for Augmented Reality Browsers.

OGC® IndoorGML

This OGC® IndoorGML standard specifies an open data model and XML schema for indoor spatial information. IndoorGML is an application schema of OGC® GML 3.2.1. While there are several 3D building modelling standards such as CityGML, KML, and IFC, which deal with interior space of buildings from geometric, cartographic, and semantic viewpoints, IndoorGML intentionally focuses on modelling indoor spaces for navigation purposes.

Compliance Interoperability & Testing Evaluation (CITE) SC

The CITE Subcommittee provides guidance to and advise the OGC staff on the operation of the Compliance and Interoperability Testing and Evaluation Program (CITE) of the Consortium. The Sub committee provides a forum for an open, consensus discussion regarding approaches and issues related to conformance and interoperability testing becoming an integral component in the OGC standards process.

Geospatial Semantic Web Interoperability Experiment

Initial Plan

This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will address several important steps towards the development of a Geospatial Semantic Web (GSW), where discovery, query, and consumption of geospatial content are based on formal semantic specification. Many pieces of the GSW puzzle have been worked extensively in the last several years; this experiment aims to augment WFS/FE with a semantic query capability, through the definition of an ontology for the geospatial intelligence community.

Data Quality DWG

The mission of the DQ DWG to establish a forum for describing an interoperable framework or model for OGC Quality Assurance measures and Web Services to enable access and sharing of high quality geospatial information, improve data analysis and ultimately influence policy decisions.

The WG will attempt to define a framework and a grammar for the certification and communication of spatial DQ. This method to describe and communicate data quality measures will reference, but not be limited by, a number of categories:
