The OGC Forms Moving Features Standards Working Group

19 February 2013. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) announced the formation of the Moving Features Standards Working Group (Moving Features SWG). "Moving features" data describes such things as vehicles and pedestrians.
 
This group is chartered to develop a candidate Moving Features standard from the discussion paper (OGC 12-117r1, OGC Standard for Moving Features; Requirements), which summarizes the requirements and basic idea of an encoding standard for moving feature data. This candidate standard will be brought into the OGC consensus process to be vetted and approved as an adopted OGC standard.
 
The OGC members convening this group invite the public to comment on the Moving Features SWG Charter ( https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=52701) and will consider comments received before 13 March 2012.
 
The proposed OGC Moving Features Encoding Standard will provide a standard for web-based Applications using moving feature data. The volume of such data, typically describing vehicles and pedestrians, has begun growing at an exponential rate along with the growth in location-aware mobile devices. Innovative applications are expected to require the overlay and integration of moving feature data from different sources to create social and business value. A standard that supports smoother handling and integration of moving feature data across applications and platforms will broaden the market for geo-spatial information of this type.
 
The OGC is an international consortium of more than 480 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 useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
