OGC Adopts Earth Observation Profile for Web-based Catalogue Services

WAYLAND, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 21, 2010 — The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) announces adoption and availability of the OGC Earth Observation (EO) Application Profile for the OGC Catalogue Services – Web (CSW) Specification 2.0.2. The EO-CSW standard will benefit a wide range of stakeholders involved in the provision and use of data generated by satellite-borne and aerial radar, optical and atmospheric sensors.

The EO-CSW standard describes a set of interfaces, bindings and encodings that can be implemented in catalog servers that data providers will use to publish collections of descriptive information (metadata) about Earth Observation data and services. Developers can also implement this standard as part of Web clients that enable data users and their applications to very efficiently search and exploit these collections of Earth Observation data and services.

The standard is available at:
http://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=15547

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.
