The Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) Pilot, sponsored by GeoConnections Canada, was an initiative of OGC's Interoperability Program to test the feasibility of using open, standards-based technology to improve the management and dissemination of geospatial data in Canada.
The Geographic Objects Initiative was sponsored by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).

Access to the Internet will predominantly be from mobile devices including smart phones and machine-to-machine interactions. Most information exchanged in mobile internet will include spatial components.
In support of OGC members and society, this OGC Interoperability Program initiative aims to help develop the consensus standards infrastructure necessary to achieve the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of location information in mobile applications worldwide.
