OGC publishes Testbed 12 Aviation Thread Engineering Reports

Sep 20, 2016 -- Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) recently approved the release of 7 draft public OGC Engineering Reports, products of the recently completed OGC Interoperability Testbed 12 Aviation Thread. Testbed 12’s Aviation Thread was sponsored by FAA and Eurocontrol, and is the most recent in the OGC's long series of major geospatial interoperability initiatives.

The 7 released draft engineering reports focus on Aviation Information Management, specifically:

The reports document interoperability prototypes developed by the Aviation Thread’s participating technology providers, and describe work in progress on potential new OGC standards, as well as work done to validate candidate standards or improve existing OGC standards. While OGC Engineering Reports are not standards, the information they contain is intended to be useful to developers and implementers of OGC standards.

The draft Testbed 12 Aviation Engineering Reports are available at docs.opengeospatial.org/per/, and include:

The final versions of the reports will be published in the coming weeks.

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 525 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.
