In this pilot project, OGC partnered with the US Department of Transportation (Bureau of Transportation Statistics) and FGDC to test the use of data content models for practical application by cooperating communities, specifically focusing on Road Transportation data. OGC tested and demonstrated the use of FGDC's Road Transportation Data Content Standard with software products that employ OpenGIS® Specifications such as Web Feature Service (WFS) and Geography Markup Language (GML).
This Interoperability Experiment (IE) will address several important steps towards the development of a Geospatial Semantic Web (GSW), where discovery, query, and consumption of geospatial content are based on formal semantic specification. Many pieces of the GSW puzzle have been worked extensively in the last several years; this experiment aims to augment WFS/FE with a semantic query capability, through the definition of an ontology for the geospatial intelligence community.
