OGC requests participation in its Marine DWG

Aug 3, 2016 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is calling for public participation in its newly-established Marine Domain Working Group (Marine DWG).

The Marine DWG was established to address applicability of the OGC standards baseline with regards to marine geospatial data, and to ensure knowledge is exchanged effectively between the relevant standards organizations, the OGC membership, and the broader geospatial community.

Geospatial data in the marine domain has been successfully standardized for navigational purposes by hydrographic agencies for many years. This has allowed mariners to safely navigate oceans, ports and waterways anywhere on earth. However, the core data that support this activity is now in demand for a much wider range of applications, including environmental protection, emergency response, offshore energy, fisheries, and more. As such, interoperability of this data is more important than ever before.

While this group will not create new standards, it will be an open forum to discuss and understand any issues, concerns, or barriers to interoperability with the aim to ensure that marine data can be used effectively by the wider community.

The OGC is looking for interested parties to assist the Marine DWG in achieving its goals. Details on the Marine Domain Working Group can be found at: www.opengeospatial.org/projects/groups/marinedwg, with the charter available at: portal.opengeospatial.org/files/68817. Interested parties can join the email list at: lists.opengeospatial.org/mailman/listinfo/marine.dwg.

About the OGC

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.
