Draft charter for artificial intelligence in geoinformatics

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the draft Geospatial Artificial Intelligence (GeoAI) Domain Working Group (DWG) Charter. Artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) technologies have started to be coupled with geoinformatics and are bringing geospatial intelligence to various domains, including autonomous transportation, predictable healthcare and sustainable urban planning/design/development, among others. For […]

Server certified as official OGC reference implementation

The QGIS Server has been certified as a compliant WMS 1.3 server against the OGC certification platform, and moreover, is considered as a reference implementation. This is the first step on the organisation’s roadmap to having a fast, compliant and reliable web map server that is straightforward to publish to from a classical QGIS project. […]

Standard to aid consistent identification of hydrologic features

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has approved the WaterML 2: Part 3 – Surface Hydrology Features standard, which forms part of the suite of standards that groups water-related OGC standards. It defines a model for identification of surface hydrologic features, such as catchments, water bodies, and confluences, to support applications like modelling of surface water […]

Adding geospatial content to images

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the GML in JPEG 2000 (GMLJP2) version 2.1 Candidate Encoding Standard. The candidate encoding standard defines how the Geography Markup Language (GML) is used within JPEG 2000 images and other gridded coverage data for adding geospatial content to imagery, such as the geographic coordinates of the image, annotations, or references […]

Hackathon to test earth observation data processing capabilities

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Earth Observation Exploitation Platform Hackathon 2018 will test the readiness of new, interoperable cloud-deployment architectures for processing of earth observation data. The hackathon aims to demonstrate that the Testbed-13 results, described in the consortium’s engineering reports, are fit for purpose. With the reports outlining several options, this hackathon will identify […]

Improving geospatial data visualisation in web maps

The Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Portrayal Concept Development Study (CDS) will assess the current state of portrayal of symbology for web-based mapping, ultimately releasing and presenting a report that will overview the findings and provide recommendations for further action. The information gained in the study will aid in developing a series of future pilots that […]

Utilising geo-information in times of crises

The Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Disasters Interoperability Concept Development Study (CDS) will assess the state of data and product exchange technologies as used in disaster planning, response, and recovery. The study will aid in developing a series of future pilots to advance the state of spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) that support disaster risk reduction globally. […]

Automating data flow between GIS and BIM

Phase 2 of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Future City Pilot aims to improve the automation of the flow of data between geospatial systems (GIS) and building information models (BIM) systems, as well as address a number of related interoperability challenges. The OGC is seeking interested sponsors to define the challenges for Phase 2 of […]
