The Catalog Domain Working Group is responsible for collection of requirements, technology discussions, presentations, and other activities related to OGC work on interface specifications for Catalogs. Catalogs enable the collection, maintenance, and access of content and service metadata for the dynamic discovery of resources. The Catalog Working Group is also the forum for discussion, development, and approval of Profiles of the OpenGIS Catalog Specification.
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.
The DocTeam works with OGC staff and OGC members to define, enforce and educate on documentation guidelines (format, templates, style) within the OGC. The DocTeam SC also works OGC staff and OGC members to maintain strong linkages between the Implementation Standards and the Abstract Specification with the goal of maintaining a core model upon which all OGC standards and standards development activities are based.
The central purpose of the Coverages DWG is to promote and oversee development of OGC Implementation Specifications for exploitation of, and accessing, coverage data, including images and other grid coverages. Secondary purposes include promoting use of these specifications, and refining the OGC Abstract Specification as may be needed to better support these specifications.

The WFS DWG provides a forum to
- Discuss requirements for the WFS and Filter specifications
- Develop Change Request Proposals for the WFS and Filter specs
- Provide a forum for the presentation, discussion, and evaluation of profiles of the WFS specification and
- Provide a forum for presentations on uses and implementations of the WFS and Filter specifications in the marketplace.
OGC members are specifying interoperability interfaces and metadata encodings that enable real time integration of heterogeneous sensor webs into the information infrastructure. Developers will use these specifications in creating applications, platforms, and products involving Web-connected devices such as flood gauges, air pollution monitors, stress gauges on bridges, mobile heart monitors, Webcams, and robots as well as space and airborne earth imaging devices.
