GEO Announces Call for Participation in GEOSS Pilot With OGC Leadership

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 07, 2011 -- The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) has announced a Call for Participation (CFP) in the 4th phase of the GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP-4). The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) provides leadership in AIP-4 and invites OGC members and other organizations to respond to the CFP. The CFP document is available at: http://earthobservations.org/geoss_call_aip.shtml.

AIP-4 will improve access to GEOSS datasets that support the "Critical Earth Observation Priorities" that have been identified by the GEO User Interface Committee. It will increase the use of these data by building on the accomplishments of prior AIP phases. AIP-4 aims to:

  • Increase on-line access to "Critical Earth Observation Priorities Data Sources";
  • Ensure datasets are discoverable through the GEOSS Common Infrastructure; and
  • Demonstrate effectiveness of general and specialized software tools for using data.

Responses to this CFP are requested by 8 May 2011. Discussion and clarification of the CFP and the initiation of AIP-4 will be the topic of weekly teleconferences. Agenda and logistics for these telecons are posted at http://www.ogcnetwork.net/AIPtelecons

The Point of Contact for the AIP task is George Percivall, Email Contact.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 420 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Visit the OGC website at http://www.opengeospatial.org.

GEO (Group on Earth Observations) is a voluntary partnership of 148 governments and international organizations, launched in response to calls for action by the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development and by the G8 (Group of Eight) leading industrialized countries. GEO is coordinating efforts to build a Global Earth Observation System of Systems, or GEOSS. See http://earthobservations.org/about_geo.shtml.
