OGC Issues RFQ and Call for Participation in NGA “NSG Profiles Plugweek” Pilot

WAYLAND, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 13, 2009 The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. has issued a Request For Quotation and Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) to solicit proposals for the NSG Profiles Plugweek Pilot, which will begin in August and end in October. (NSG is the National System for Geospatial Intelligence.) The sponsor, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), will provide profiles of the OGC Web Map Service, Web Feature Service and Web Coverage Service Interface Standards. The RFQ/CFP is available at: www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/58.

With the help of Plugweek participants, the NGA will examine the suitability and performance of these profiles and corresponding profile compliance tests. The NGA is providing cost-sharing funds and seeks to involve as many participants as possible.

The RFQ/CFP invites prospective participants to submit proposals for providing and deploying hardware and software and contributing to the final technology suite for the test network. The sponsor will decide which submitters will be offered cost-sharing funds. Participants will use the profiles mentioned above and also schemas and data provided by the NGA.

NSG Profiles Plugweek is an opportunity for vendors, users, and other interested parties to mutually refine services, interfaces and protocols in the context of a hands-on engineering experience that is intended to shape the future of the NGA’s web based information distribution systems. Another benefit is that this effort has well-defined objectives, while providing a significant opportunity to explore alternatives in a unique hands-on engineering context.

Instructions for submitting proposals are provided in the RFQ/CFP. Proposals are due by August 3, 2009. Non-member proposals will be considered if a completed application for OGC membership accompanies or precedes a letter of intent to submit a proposal.

The OGC® is an international industry consortium of more than 385 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface specifications. OpenGIS Specifications support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location services, and mainstream IT. They empower developers to make complex spatial information and services useful with all kinds of applications. See http://www.opengeospatial.org.
