OGC Seeks Comments on Ordering Service Candidate Standard

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jan 24, 2011 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC Ordering Services for Earth Observation Products Interface Standard. This candidate interface standard defines interfaces for ordering products derived from Earth observation satellites. In particular it provides interfaces for:

  • Getting the processing and delivery options available for specific Earth observation products
  • Getting the price quotation for an order to be submitted
  • Submitting the order
  • Monitoring the status of the submitted orders and optionally cancelling them
  • Retrieving the products (on-line, if supported by the server)

This candidate standard has been prepared by the OGC Technical Committee Ordering Standards Working Group and it is based on an existing specification prepared and implemented in several ESA (European Space Agency) projects. Currently, implementations are available from at least the following space agencies:

  • ESA
  • Eumetsat
  • DLR

Other implementations are being developed, including those being developed in GMES-related activities.

This candidate standard is designed to work with the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) suite of standards. For the modelling of ordering options the SWE Common specification has been selected and some elements are shared with the OGC Sensor Planning Service Interface Standard (SPS).

The candidate OGC Ordering Services for Earth Observation Products Interface Standard can be found at: http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/75. The period for issuing comments expires on 23 February 2011.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 405 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. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
