Enhancing pipeline management standards

December 2nd, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

The Open Geospatial Consortium and the PODS Association have agreed to work together to identify enhancement opportunities between the advanced geospatial interoperability concepts developed within the OGC’s consensus standards process and the PODS Association’s widely used PODS standard and data model. Finding better ways to share and exchange pipeline and related information will improve data quality and availability, and support integrity management, regulatory compliance, and the goal of zero pipeline incidents. Mark Reichardt, OGC president and CEO, acknowledged the important role that the PODS standard and data model play in the management of pipelines around the world. He said he is pleased to bring together OGC and PODS Association expertise to explore ways in which they can further improve interoperability and integration of pipeline information with other important location information. Janet Sinclair, executive director of the PODS Association also recognised the added value and expertise brought by the OGC in working together to improve interoperability to support lifecycle data management for pipelines.
