OGC Announces "SWE Common" Standards to Simplify Sensor Web Development

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 25, 2011 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has voted to approve the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) Common Service Model Interface Standard Version 2.0 and the OGC SWE Common Data Model Encoding Standard Version 2.0 as official OGC standards.

The OGC SWE Common Service Model Interface Standard is applicable to all services that provide or require information from or about sensors. It is designed for use cases in which sensors need to be accessed and managed through service interfaces.

The OGC SWE Common Encoding Standard provides a standard model (and XML implementation of the model) for the representation, nature, structure and encoding of sensor related data. It is used for describing static data (files) as well as dynamically generated datasets (on-the-fly processing), real-time streaming data, and process and web service inputs and outputs.

Both of the SWE Common standards are designed to be used with other existing OGC® Sensor Web Enablement standards such as OGC Sensor Model Language (SensorML) Encoding Standard, Sensor Observation Service (SOS) Interface Standard and Sensor Planning Service (SPS) Interface Standard.

The OGC SWE Common Service Model 2.0 Interface Standard is available at
http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/swes and the OGC SWE Common Data Model Encoding Standard Version 2.0 is available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/swecommon.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 415 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.
