OGC Seeks Comments on Earth Observation Extension of Sensor Planning Service Standard

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Aug 17, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) members are seeking comments on the "Earth Observation Satellite Tasking Extension for OGC® Sensor Planning Service (SPS)." The SPS configuration proposed in this profile supports the programming of Earth Observation (EO) sensor systems. The candidate standard describes a single SPS configuration that can be supported by many satellite data providers who have existing facilities for managing sensor system programming requests.

This SPS standard defines interfaces for queries that provide information about the capabilities of a sensor and how to task the sensor, where the sensor may be any type of sensor with a digital interface. The SPS and EO-SPS standards are part of the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/markets-technologies/swe) suite of standards. SWE standards enable developers to describe, discover, task, and access any Internet or Web accessible sensor, transducer and sensor data repository.

The candidate OGC® Sensor Planning Service Application Profile for Earth Observation Sensors and information on submitting comments on this document are available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/70. The public comment period closes on September 16, 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 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.
