OGC participating in 2012 Air Transportation Information Exchange Conference – Part 2

I attended the second day at the 2012 Air Transportation Information Exchange Conference, at NOAA in Silver Spring (See Nadine's related blog here). The first three talks were focused on semantics. Then my colleague Nadine Alameh gave a rich multimedia overview (70 Mb presentation) about OGC and OGC Web Services activities (OWS). I talked about the semantic work being advanced in OWS.

For more than 20 years, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has been leaving its footprint on the rapidly-evolving Spatial Data Infrastructure market. OGC web services standards, derived from the needs of a large international community of geospatial practitioners, have become a catalyst for a new collaborative business model for delivering geospatial data and geoprocessing services.

OGC Xlink Policy and timeline to move to XLink 1.1

Back in 2000, the OGC Members determined that the W3C XLink recommendation was well suited to the requirements for GML 2.0 as well as other OGC standards. However, at that time, W3C did not have a XLink schema. Therefore, the OGC Members decided to define an OGC XLink schema that was based on the W3C XLink recommendation. This XLink schema is now used in numerous OGC standards (See below).

The Met Ocean Domain Working Group of OGC is now approaching its 5th birthday - it was established in 2009 at the OGC Athens Technical Committee, transformed itself from just 'Meteorology' to 'Meteorology & Oceanography', and persuaded everyone that Climatology is a subset, so did not need a separate interest group like Hydrology.

It was a great personal pleasure for me to attend the the 98th OGC Technical Committee Meeting earlier this month at the World Bank in Washington, DC. The venue, attendees and scope of important work made me immensely proud of the organization that I have served for more than 21 years.

Office International de l'Eau (OIEau) has been setting up open information systems and data exchange standards in water related domains for years. OIEau's main standardization activity is the support it provides to the French water community via the Sandre secretariat. OIEau teams support other initiatives such as Water Information System for Europe (WISE) and the INSPIRE data specification process. As an OGC member, OIEau is also involved in the Hydrology Domain Working Group, which is co-chaired by the OGC and the World Meteorology Organization's Commission on Hydrology.
