The OGC's process and standards play a critical role as business requirements for communication of location become a key issue for the mobile industry.
As the first intern to work for the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), I feel honored to share my intern experiences with this great organization.
From February to the present time, I have worked as a Marketing and Communications Intern in OGC. My internship will end in August. Most of my tasks are aimed to help promote OGC among target audiences and facilitate the communication between OGC and its respected members.
Geonovum, Netherlands has the task to provide better access to geo-information in the public sector. To fulfil this task, we at Geonovum develop and manage the required geo-standards. Of course we base our geo-standards on the international ISO and OGC geo-standards.
The Heterogeneous Missions Accessibility (HMA) manual , freely downloadable from the ESA web site , provides a high level view on the results of several years of harmonisation and standardisation work in the critical area of ground segment interoperability of Earth Observation satellite missions. The coordinated effort of the European space and downstream industries, research centres, agencies and institutions has made a significant contribution to the definition of geospatial standards published within the Open Geospatial Consortium. Earth Observation systems are inherently
A new standard being developed in the OGC has an important part in improving shared situational awareness. The candidate OGC Web Services (OWS) Context standard encodes the key elements of a common operating picture: the geographic area, an optional time range, and an ordered series of layers from different services or inline content. This allows a situational awareness view of one user to be passed to other users so that the same picture can be reconstructed.
Over the past decade, location data and spatial analytics have played a transformative role in addressing a number of global issues. My interest has focused on improving public health and sustainable communities through improved sharing of geospatial information.
