OGC seeks public comment on OGC Emergency and Disaster Management Information Framework Discussion Paper

20 January 2016 - The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the OGC Emergency and Disaster Management Information Framework Discussion Paper.

This paper proposes the establishment of information management ecosystems for Emergency and Disaster Management (EDM) planning and for decision support during unpredictable and rapidly evolving EDM situations. In contrast to monolithic information systems, information ecosystems consist of diverse services that can interoperate and access multiple data sources through common interfaces. This approach provides maximum resilience and flexibility for delivery of situational awareness and reliable decision support. Essential service types and related standards are described.

The purpose and scope of this paper is to help EDM organizations and their technology providers address the topics that need to be taken into account when planning and developing EMD information ecosystems. It presents recommended practices and highlights gaps that need to be addressed.  

The OGC Emergency and Disaster Management Information Framework Discussion Paper is available for review and comment at ( www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/145).Comments are due by 19 February 2016.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 515 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.
