Simple Features for OLE/COM

The three OpenGIS® Simple Features Implementation Specifications (one each for OLE/COM, CORBA, and SQL) define interfaces that enable transparent access to geographic data held in heterogeneous processing systems on distributed computing platforms.

The Simple Feature Specification application programming interfaces (APIs) provide for publishing, storage, access, and simple operations on Simple Features (point, line, polygon, multi-point, etc). The purpose of these specifications is to describe interfaces to allow GIS software engineers to develop applications that expose funct...

Civil Works Technology Insertion, Phase 1

Technology Insertion Project. The CTI Project, sponsored by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), integrated multiple map servers, including nodes at the Corps' Mississippi Valley Division and the New Orleans District Office. Insertion Projects focus on expanding an organization’s interoperability capacity by laying the groundwork for open implementations.


1. OLS v1.3 SWG

2. Purpose of the Standards Working Group

The purpose of this Standards Working Group is to extend the OLS 1.2 specification with navigation capabilities.

3. Scope of Work

The scope of work consists of the following:

SensorThings SWG

OGC has identified the need for standardized interfaces for sensors in the Web of Things (WoT).  The Sensor Web interface for IoT SWG aims to develop such a standard based on existing WoT portals with consideration of the existing OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards.

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.
