OGC® WaterML

WaterML 2.0 is a standard information model for the representation of water observations data, with the intent of allowing the exchange of such data sets across information systems. Through the use of existing OGC standards, it aims at being an interoperable exchange format that may be re-used to address a range of exchange requirements, some of which are described later in this document.

OGP / IPIECA Oil Spill Response Common Operating Picture (COP)

Published report

This project is completed and the final report has been published by IPIECA.   The resport has also been approved as an OGC Best Practice.

This report provides recommended practice for GIS/mapping in support of oil spill response and for the use of GIS technology and geospatial information in forming a “Common Operating Picture” to support management of the response.

OLS 1.3 SWG

Chair(s):

Smyth, Carl Stephen (Open Site Plan)
Fuchs, Gil (MAGIC Services Forum)

Group Description:

1. OLS v1.3 SWG

2. Purpose of the Standards Working Group

The purpose of this Standards Working Group is to extend the OLS 1.2 specification with navigation capabilities.

3. Scope of Work

The scope of work consists of the following:

Open GeoSMS Standard - Core

The OGC Open GeoSMS Standard provides developers with an extended Short Message Service (SMS) encoding and interface to facilitate communication of location content between different LBS (Location-Based Service) devices or applications. SMS is the open text communication service standard most commonly used in phone, web and mobile communication systems for the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices. The lightweight and easy to implement Open GeoSMS Standard facilitates interoperability between mobile applications and the rapidly expanding world of geospatia...

Open Location Services Testbed

The OpenLS Testbed yielded Interoperability Program Reports (IPRs) that have become approved OpenGIS® Specifications in support of interoperable Location Based Services to be made available through mobile terminals. The OpenLS Testbed ended with a successful multi-vendor, specification-based mobile demonstration of these interfaces in action.

Testbed Sponsors included Hutchison 3G (UK), Oracle, Webraska (France), ESRI (US), Sun Microsystems (US) and In-Q-Tel (US).

Open Location Services Testbed, Phase 1.1

The OpenLS Testbed was sponsored by Hutchison 3G UK, Sun Microsystems, In-Q-Tel, ESRI with SignalSoft, and Oracle with Webraska.

This testbed yielded Interoperability Program Reports (IPRs) that have become approved OpenGIS® Specifications in support of interoperable Location Based Services to be made available through mobile terminals. The OpenLS Testbed ended with a successful multi-vendor, specification-based mobile demonstration of these interfaces in action.

OpenGIS Transducer Markup Language (TML) Encoding Specification

*THIS STANDARD HAS BEEN RETIRED* The OpenGIS® Transducer Markup Language Encoding Standard (TML) is an application and presentation layer communication protocol for exchanging live streaming or archived data to (i.e. control data) and/or sensor data from any sensor system. A sensor system can be one or more sensors, receivers, actuators, transmitters, and processes. A TML client can be capable of handling any TML enabled sensor system without prior knowledge of that system.

OpenSearch Geo and Time Extensions

This OGC standard specifies the Geo and Time extensions to the OpenSearch query protocol. OpenSearch is a collection of simple formats for the sharing of search results.

The OpenSearch description document format can be used to describe a search engine so that it can be used by search client applications. The OpenSearch description format allows the use of extensions that allow search engines to request a specific and contextual query parameter from search clients.

The OpenSearch response elements can be used to extend existing syndication formats, such as RSS and Atom, with...
