OGC Processes Advance GEOSS Interoperability

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) processes contributed to the interoperability achievements announced in the "GEOSS Report on Progress 2007" accepted by the Member Nations of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) at their EO Summit in Cape Town on 30 November. At the Summit, representatives of 71 member governments, the European Commission, and 46 participating organisations of GEO met to assess progress on the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS), a global, coordinated, comprehensive and sustained system of earth observing systems to provide vast quantities of near-real-time information of the Earth's land, oceans, atmosphere and biosphere through interoperability...

OGC Seeks Public Comment on Extension to GeoPackage Standard

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is seeking public comment on the candidate "GeoPackage Extension for Tiled Gridded Coverage Data" standard. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information. It is suitable for use across many domains, from defence and intelligence to outdoor recreation. ‘GeoPackage Extension for Tiled Gridded Coverage Data’ was initially documented in the GeoPackage 1.2 draft standard as Annex F.11 Tiled Gridded Elevation Data. In 2016, the GeoPackage Elevation Extension was tested and refined as part of the OGC GeoPackage Elevation Extension Interoperability Experiment. Based on the results of the Interoperability Experiment,... (read more)
