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...
1. OGC CRS WKT SWG
2. Purpose of this Standards Working Group (SWG)
The purpose of this Standards Working Group is to progress the Well Known Text (WKT) representation of Coordinate Reference System (CRS) definitions to the state of an adopted OGC standard and an identical ISO International Standard. This will be achieved by processing comments received during the public comment period and ensuring that the standard is consistent with the OGC and ISO TC211 business plans. The work will be conducted jointly with ISO TC211.
3. Scope of Work
The Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative Phase 1, Requirement Set 2 (CIPI-1.2) is a pilot project sponsored by the US Census Bureau that leverages the success of previous and ongoing OGC initiatives to improve interoperability across communities that need to collaborate to detect, prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from natural and human threats to telecommunications, water resources, oil and gas, government, transportation, emergency response, electric power and health services infrastructure.
