Suggest a conference for OGC to support

Every year executive staff members from the OGC attend and participate in many events around the world. These events generally focus on geospatial and location issues, but as the number of OGC Domain Working Groups grows and the reach of OGC standards expands, our standards are becoming relevant in a wider range of domains. We need input and guidance from OGC members regarding industry events that best address member needs based on the usefulness and relevance of OGC standards.

If you would like to suggest an event for OGC to consider, please complete the OGC Conference Suggestion form below. Please note that the OGC does not fund non-OGC events, but sponsors events by providing presenters, allowing use of our logo and offering our global marketing reach to promote events. OGC staff time is subject to availability and priority is given to international events where we can most efficiently deliver our message about the value of OGC standards and OGC membership.

SWE Common Data Model Encoding Standard

The Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) Common Data Model Encoding Standard defines low level data models for exchanging sensor related data between nodes of the OGC® Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) framework. These models allow applications and/or servers to structure, encode and transmit sensor datasets in a self describing and semantically enabled way.

SWE Common 1.0 was defined in the OGC SensorML 1.0 Standard available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/sensorml.

SWE Service Model Implementation Standard

This standard currently defines eight packages with data types for common use across OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) services. Five of these packages define operation request and response types. The packages are: 1.) Contents – Defines data types that can be used in specific services that provide (access to) sensors; 2.) Notification – Defines the data types that support provision of metadata about the notification capabilities of a service as well as the definition and encoding of SWES events; 3.) Common - Defines data types common to other packages; 4.) Common Codes –Defines commonly used li...

Symbology Encoding

This Specification defines Symbology Encoding, an XML language for styling information that can be applied to digital Feature and Coverage data. This document is together with the Styled Layer Descriptor Profile for the Web Map Service Implementation Specification the direct follow-up of Styled Layer Descriptor Implementation Specification 1.0.0. The old specification document was split up into two documents to allow the parts that are not specific to WMS to be reused by other service specifications.
