OGC Seeks Comments on MovingObjectSnapshot Standard

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 23, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) is seeking public comment on a Geography Markup Language (GML) XML encoding for describing the characteristics of a moving object, such as a GPS enabled car. This candidate standard provides a way of describing in simple terms the motion of an object, such as a car driving through city streets or a person walking in a park.

This candidate standard fills a need for "lightweight" packets of tracking information, such as direction and velocity that can be communicated between diverse platforms and applications supporting mobile location-aware devices. The GML encoding used in this candidate standard is compatible with a wide range of other standard encodings used in other communities, such as emergency services.

The candidate standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/69. The public comment period closes on August 23rd, 2010.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 395 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
