OGC Calls for Participation in Major Geo Standards Testbed

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 23, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) for the OGC Web Services, Phase 8 (OWS-8) Interoperability Initiative, a testbed to advance OGC's open interoperability framework for geospatial capabilities. The RFQ/CFP is available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/74.

The organizations sponsoring OWS-8 seek open standards that address their interoperability requirements. OWS-8 will be organized around the following threads:

1) Observation Fusion -- Detection, tracking, and bookmarking of moving objects in video using Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) and other OGC standards; as well as coverage access and processing.

2) Geosynchronization (Gsync) -- Distributing bulk data sets, while addressing synchronization and updates of geospatial data across a hierarchical Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI).

3) Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI) -- Advancement of semantic mediation among heterogeneous data models via the OGC Web Feature Service WFS Interface standard; style registries and styling services; KML; and UML/OCL for schema automation on domain models.

4) Aviation -- Delivery, filtering and update of Aeronautical Information Exchange (AIXM) 5.1 using WFS-Transactional and OGC Filter Encoding standards; validating emerging metadata and OGC Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard profiles; event notification architecture, including NOTAM events; Weather Information Exchange Model (WXXM) using coverages for encoding weather and radar datasets, on-demand Coordinate Reference System (CRS) transformations, distributed architectures for Units of Measure (UoM), and probabilistic Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAF) decision making applications.

The RFQ/CFP includes details of these threads as well as details of the 6 December 2010 bidders' conference ( http://opengeospatial.webex.com/), the selection process and kickoff. Proposal responses are due by 5:00 p.m., 14 January 2011. If your organization is interested in participating, contact David Arctur at Email Contact.

OGC's international testbeds, pilot projects, interoperability experiments and interoperability support services support rapid development, testing, validation and adoption of OGC standards.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 400 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. Visit the OGC website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/contact/.
