GeoAPI 3.0 SWG

Chair(s):

Desruisseaux, Martin (GEOMATYS)

Group Description:

1. Purpose

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.

HDWG Surface Water IE

SUMMARY

This interoperability experiment will advance the development of WaterML 2.0, test its use with various OGC service standards (SOS, WFS, WMS and CSW). It will also contribute to the development of a hydrology domain feature model and vocabularies, which are essential for interoperability in the hydrology domain.

GeoMobile and Internet of Things

Background

Access to the Internet will predominantly be from mobile devices including smart phones and machine-to-machine interactions.  Most information exchanged in mobile internet will include spatial components.  

In support of OGC members and society, this OGC Interoperability Program initiative aims to help develop the consensus standards infrastructure necessary to achieve the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of location information in mobile applications worldwide.

USGS Interoperability Assessment

The rigorous testing of USGS web services performed in the Interoperability Assessment Project helped us identify and correct shortcomings of our implementation of OGC standards, and highlighted areas in which to improve the user experience with our web services.  As a result of the project, our users can include the improved USGS services more easily in their decisions making and operational activities.

Geospatial One-Stop - Transportation Pilot

In this pilot project, OGC partnered with the US Department of Transportation (Bureau of Transportation Statistics) and FGDC to test the use of data content models for practical application by cooperating communities, specifically focusing on Road Transportation data. OGC tested and demonstrated the use of FGDC's Road Transportation Data Content Standard with software products that employ OpenGIS® Specifications such as Web Feature Service (WFS) and Geography Markup Language (GML).
