The First-Ever OGC Plugfest
The First-Ever OGC Plugfest was held on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 in Southampton, UK in connection with the 50th OGC Technical Committee Meeting. This plugfest concentrated on testing interoperability between clients and servers that are intended to comply with Web Map Service 1.1.1 and Web Feature Service 1.0. Only OGC members who are actually testing interoperability wiere able to attend this event. Please read on to learn how to participate in future OGC Plugfests.
Implementation Standards are different from the Abstract Specification. They are written for a more technical audience and detail the interface structure between software components. An interface specification is considered to be at the implementation level of detail if, when implemented by two different software engineers in ignorance of each other, the resulting components plug and play with each other at that interface.
OGC Testbed 10 (OWS-10) brings new capabilities

Testbed 12 Sponsors have documented interoperability requirements and objectives for this initiative. Organizations selected to participate are developing solutions based on the Sponsors’ use cases, requirements and scenarios, which are described in detail in the Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ). Participant solutions are implementing existing OGC standards as well as new prototype interface and encoding specifications introduced or developed during the testbed.
The Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) has conducted significant, extensive research and development addressing these challenges within the United States since 2004, with support from the National Science Foundation.
