Purpose of this Standards Working Group
The purpose of this IndoorGML Standard Working Group is to develop an application schema of OGC GML and progress the document to the state of an adopted OGC standard. The goal of this candidate standard is to establish a common schema framework for indoor navigation applications. This SWG will start from the discussion paper (OGC 10-191r1, Requirements and Space-Event Modeling for Indoor Navigation), which summarizes the requirements and basic idea of a standard for indoor navigation.
This project is currently in concept development.
What is it? An inter-disciplinary, inter-agency and international virtual observatory system for water resources information from observations and forecasts in the U.S. and Canada, building on current networks and capabilities, designed to support these functions:
This project is currently in concept development.
This standard defines a protocol for RS232 and Ethernet connected instruments. PUCK addresses installation and configuration challenges for sensors by defining a standard instrument protocol to store and automatically retrieve metadata and other information from the instrument device itself.
Most sensor networks require careful manual installation and configuration by technicians to assure that software components are properly associated with the physical instruments that they represent. Instrument driver software, configuration files, and metadata describing the instrument and its ...
The OGC Open GeoSMS Standard provides developers with an extended Short Message Service (SMS) encoding and interface to facilitate communication of location content between different LBS (Location-Based Service) devices or applications. SMS is the open text communication service standard most commonly used in phone, web and mobile communication systems for the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices. The lightweight and easy to implement Open GeoSMS Standard facilitates interoperability between mobile applications and the rapidly expanding world of geospatia...
In June 2011, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) opened an initiative called EarthCube in a partnership between the Geosciences Directorate (GEO) and the Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI). This seeks "transformative concepts and approaches to create integrated data management infrastructures across the Geosciences." A Charette was held near Washington DC, 1-4 November 2011, in which OGC staff, members, and over 100 others from the research community participated to define a set of capabilities the EarthCube program needs to address.
In December 2011, NSF released a Dear Colleague Letter with additional details on the process and requirements to explore ideas to receive funding in support of EarthCube goals (available at http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2012/nsf12024/nsf12024.jsp).
See (and subscribe to) http://earthcube.ning.com/profiles/blog/list for the most current status reports from NSF on this initiative. Other pages on this website provide background materials and whitepapers submitted prior to the charette, as well as ongoing group discussion on various topics. Anyone interested can register and join these discussions at any time.
OGC staff are working with interested members and the broader geosciences research community on organizational framework and other proposals to support this initiative. If you are interested in coordinating with OGC on a proposal for EarthCube, please contact David Arctur on OGC staff (darctur AT opengeospatial.org).
This OGC® standard specifies the interfaces, bindings, requirements, conformance classes, and a framework for implementing extensions that enable complete workflows for ordering of Earth Observation (EO) data products.
The GeoBI Ad Hoc has been renamed to GeoBI DWG upon approval during the December 2011 TC/PC meetings.
Business intelligence (BI) aims to support better business decision-making using computer-based techniques used for identifying, extracting and analyzing business data. Geospatial Business Intelligence (GeoBI) adds geospatial technology to BI.
1. RESTful Service Policy Standards Working Group
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) sees value in Web Services and Applications which make use of a RESTful approach to design. OGC believes that a common understanding and agreement on how to structure Resource Models and leverage uniform Web interfaces, in other words a common RESTful approach to the design and standardization of Web services, will lead to both improved interoperability and greater accessibility for these services. During the OGC Technical Committee (TC) meeting in Boulder in September 2011, the REST Subcommittee members recommended forming a standards working group to write such a policy standard.
