The OGC Innovation Program provides a venue to advance solutions to data challenges through using open standards. In addition to creating new standards, the testbeds provide a unique platform where sponsors can outsource the rapid generation of prototypes and test environments with a number of leading organizations in their field. Testbeds result in more than just new and updated standards: outcomes include guides, overviews, and best practices for solving bleeding edge geospatial problems.
The OGC Underground Infrastructure Mapping and Modeling project will lead to improved public safety, project delivery and urban resilience from a secure 3D repository of urban underground infrastructure.
Organizations sponsoring the Concept Development Study phase:
- Fund for the City of New York (FCNY)
- Ordnance Survey UK
- Singapore Land Authority

The mission of the University Domain Working Group (UDWG) will be to coordinate the common interests of OGC academic and research members in the following areas:
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.
