OGC Releases OWS-6 Interoperability Testbed Videos

Wayland, MA,— July 20, 2009 — The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) announces the release of on-line videos ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/pub/www/ows6/index.html) that document the recent final interoperability demonstration of the OGC Web Services Initiative, Phase 6 (OWS-6) Testbed. OWS-6 addressed activities organized around geospatial interoperability requirements in the following areas:

1) Sensor Web Enablement (SWE)
2) Geo Processing Workflow (GPW)
3) Decision Support Services (DSS)
4) Aeronautical Information Management (AIM)
5) Compliance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE).

The SWE, GPW and DSS portions of the demo show how standards-enabled interoperability supports coordinated responses to a hypothetical disaster scenario involving an airport hostage crisis and fire explosion. The AIM demonstration showed the use of web services for flight navigation, taking into account weather, diversions, and other event notifications.

The videos are complemented by a series of OGC Engineering Reports that define in more detail the web services interoperability capability and architecture advanced for each of the above mentioned focus areas. Most of these reports will be available on the OGC public web site within the next few weeks.

OWS-6 sponsors included:

  • US Dept. of Defense Joint Program Executive Office - Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) Software Support Activity (SSA)
  • Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) GeoConnections
  • US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • EUROCONTROL - European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation
  • EADS N.V. Defence and Communications Systems (DCS)
  • US Geological Survey (USGS)
  • BAE Systems
  • ERDAS, Inc.
  • Lockheed Martin Corporation
For more information about OWS-6, see the initial announcement at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/50. OGC and prospective sponsors are planning the next OGC Web Services Initiative, OWS-7, which is expected to begin in the fall and end next summer (details to be announced).

OGC's Interoperability Program is a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate standards. In OGC's Interoperability Initiatives, international teams of technology providers work together to solve specific geo-processing interoperability problems posed by the initiative's sponsoring organizations.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 385 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.
