A white paper is an OGC member approved publication released by the OGC to the Public that states a position on one or more technical considerations or other subjects that are germane to the work of the OGC, often including a high-level explanation of a standards based architecture or framework of a solution. A White Paper often explains the results or conclusions of research. A White Paper is not an official position of the OGC.
The Geographic Objects Initiative was sponsored by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).
This proposed OGC Interoperability Experiment (IE) is intended to create and test a candidate specification for a Sensor Alert Service (SAS). This work is part of the ongoing OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) effort.
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.

GEOSS will achieve comprehensive, coordinated and sustained observations of the Earth system, in order to improve monitoring of the state of the Earth, increase understanding of Earth processes, and enhance prediction of the behavior of the Earth system. Information about GEOSS.
OGC is involved in GEOSS in several ways:
The OGC "Geo-interface for Atmosphere, Land, Earth, and Ocean netCDF" (GALEON) Interoperability Experiment supports open access to atmospheric and oceanographic modeling and simulation outputs.
GALEON Phase I completed in 2007. GALEON Phase II started shortly after. However, Phase II is currently dormant awaiting the completion of the revision to OGC Web Coverage Service (version 2). Once WCS 2.0 work is completed, GALEON Phase II will restart.
Following is a summary of the Phase 1 activity.
