OGC Seeks Comments on Candidate XML Standard for Encoding Observations & Measurements

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 22, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) Members are seeking comments on the "Observations and Measurements - XML Implementation" candidate standard. This candidate standard specifies an XML encoding for the Observations and Measurements conceptual model.

The Observations and Measurements (O&M) conceptual model, a joint OGC and ISO standard, provides the theoretical basis for an abstract model encoding for observations and provides support for common sampling strategies. O&M also provides a general framework for systems that deal in technical measurements in science and engineering.

The candidate OMXML standard and other standards that have resulted from the OGC's Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) effort ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/markets-technologies/swe) enable developers to make all types of sensors, transducers and sensor data repositories discoverable, accessible and useable via the Web.

The candidate OGC Observations and Measurements - XML Implementation Encoding Standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/68. The public comment period closes on August 7th, 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.
