1. OWS-3 Overview
Building on previous work in other OGC initiatives and technical working groups, OWS-3 participants worked collaboratively to extend the OGC baseline to enable an interoperable, multi-source decision support environment. The work addressed a rich set of requirements provided by OWS-3's sponsors. Sponsors include: BAE Systems, IONIC, GeoConnections (Canada), Lockheed Martin, MAGIC Services
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.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) conducted a series of tests that examined the interoperability, suitability and performance of National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) Profiles provided by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) of four OGC Standards, Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Coverage Service (WCS), and Catalog Service (CAT). In the study, vendors, users, and other interested parties conducted Technology Integration Experiments (TIEs) and mutually refined clients, services, interfaces and protocols in the context of a hands-on engineeri
