OGC calls for participation in USGS Interoperability Assessment Virtual Exercise

1 May 2014 -- USGS data services get over 1 million hits per day. These data are used by a range of communities including governments at state, county, and city levels for a variety of purposes (science, decision-support, etc). As such, there is an increasing desire to determine whether the USGS data services are fully compliant with relevant OGC standards, and if there are opportunities to improve how the data is being served to the different communities.
 
As part of the USGS Interoperability Assessment Initiative, the OGC and its members are evaluating the different USGS data services with the goal of assessing whether OGC standards as implemented in USGS servers are meeting users' requirements. To achieve this goal, the OGC is issuing a  Call for Participation (CFP) for the USGS Interoperability Assessment Virtual Exercise Responses to this call for participation are due by 31 May 2014.
 
The overall goal of the initiative is to improve the user’s experience with USGS data services. The exercise will help evaluate the current tools, service instances, standard services, and best practices. The recommendations derived from the exercise will serve developers and users. They will guide the developers of tools and standards to better serve the needs for the communities of use, and those communities will learn about additional tools and approaches to optimize their workflows.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 475 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/.
