OGC network Common Data Form (netCDF) standards suite

netCDF is a set of software libraries and self-describing, machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data. The conventions for climate and forecast (CF) metadata are designed to promote the processing and sharing of netCDF files. The conventions define metadata that provide a definitive description of what the data represents, and the spatial and temporal properties of the data.

The OGC CF-netCDF standard consists of a suite of standards that support encoding of digital geospatial information representing space/ti...

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.

Simple Features for CORBA

The three OpenGIS® Simple Features Implementation Specifications (one each for OLE/COM, CORBA, and SQL) define interfaces that enable transparent access to geographic data held in heterogeneous processing systems on distributed computing platforms.

The Simple Feature Specification application programming interfaces (APIs) provide for publishing, storage, access, and simple operations on Simple Features (point, line, polygon, multi-point, etc). The purpose of these specifications is to describe interfaces to allow GIS software engineers to develop applications that expose funct...

Conformance & Interoperability Test & Evaluation, Phase 1

As customers in the geospatial industry prepare to modernize their systems based on OGC Web Services, they will require proof of products' conformance to OpenGIS® Specifications in order to achieve interoperability. Validating conformance to an OpenGIS® Specification means verifying that a software product has implemented the specification correctly. Validation involves testing the software interface for response and behavior outlined in the specification. The Conformance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE) Initiative
