OGC Announces Sensor Web Enablement Summit

WAYLAND, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 6, 2009 — The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) invites participation in an OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) Summit to be held June 24, 2009 at the Stata Center at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The OGC's Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/markets-technologies/swe) enable developers to make all types of sensors, transducers and sensor data repositories discoverable, accessible and useable via the Web. These standards are finding wide use in ocean observation, homeland security, and other domains where Web access to sensors is important.

“It’s rewarding to see how developers are using these interoperability interfaces and metadata encodings to enable integration of heterogeneous sensor webs,” explained Dr. Mike Botts, chair of the SWE Working Group of the OGC Technical Committee. “They are creating applications, platforms, and products involving Web-connected devices such as flood gauges, air pollution monitors, stress gauges on bridges, mobile heart monitors, Webcams, and robots as well as space and airborne earth imaging devices.”

“Sensors of all kinds are improving and becoming less expensive, and more and more sensor systems are being connected to the Web,” said Mark Reichardt, the OGC’s president and CEO. “We are holding this summit to show the comprehensive framework of open Web standards our members have developed to describe, publish, and access sensors and sensor data.”

The OGC’s June 2009 Technical Committee meeting week also includes a Geospatial Rights Management Summit ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/event/090622georm) hosted by the OGC’s GeoRM Working Group and a 3D Fusion Summit ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/event/0906233dfusion) hosted by the OGC’s 3DIM Working Group.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 380 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OpenGIS Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
