Simple Features for CORBA

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...

Observations and Measurements

This standard specifies an XML implementation for the OGC and ISO Observations and Measurements (O&M) conceptual model (OGC Observations and Measurements v2.0 also published as ISO/DIS 19156), including a schema for Sampling Features. This encoding is an essential dependency for the OGC Sensor Observation Service (SOS) Interface Standard. More specifically, this standard defines XML schemas for observations, and for features involved in sampling when making observations. These provide document models for the exchange of information describing observation acts and their results, both within an...

GeoSynchronization 1.0 SWG

GeoSynchronization Service
Agile spatial data infrastructures based on OGC standards allow content provider organizations to deploy increasingly efficient networks capable of responding to dynamic requirements for using geospatial or location referenced content. In this context, content provider organizations are being more and more called upon to deliver current, timely and verified data over the World Wide Web.

Law Enforcement And Public Safety DWG

1.     Introduction and Background

OGC standards development process have depended upon communities of interest working to advance standards for improved information sharing, situational awareness and decision making.  OGC’s working group activities, testbeds and pilot initiatives will benefit from being driven by requirements and use cases provided by representatives from the law enforcement, civil security and public safety communities.
