OGC seeks comment on proposed GeoScience Domain Working Group

Contact: [hidden email] 

19 April 2017: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comments on the draft charter of a proposed GeoScience Domain Working Group (DWG).

GeoScience encompasses a number of scientific domains focused on providing a better understanding, representation, and - more generally - knowledge of the Earth. These domains include Geology, Geophysics, Hydrogeology, Mineralogy, Seismology, Tomography, and/or Volcanology. Those domains are deeply interrelated and need to be studied together to best provide a global Earth Science System that supports research into, and maintains knowledge of, the Earth’s workings and resources.

The GeoScience Domain Working Group aims to connect people interested in GeoSciences by providing an open forum in which to develop, improve, and promote technologies for GeoScience data description and sharing. To this end, the open forum will encourage collaborative development among participants representing many organizations and communities, and will ensure appropriate liaisons to other relevant working groups, both inside and outside of OGC.

The GeoScience DWG will be a joint OGC and CGI-IUGS working group. The Commission for the Management and Application of Geoscience Information (CGI) is a working subcommittee of the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS). The group’s main mission is to enable the global exchange of knowledge about geoscience information and systems.

The GeoScience DWG draft charter is available at: https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/73685. Comments should be sent via email to [hidden email] and are due by 10 May 2017. The OGC and the SWG welcome all interested parties.

See the OGC’s Domain Working Group and Standards Working Group pages to learn about other standards activities that are ongoing in the OGC. There is currently strong emphasis on topics related to Internet of Things, indoor navigation, Big Data, Linked Data, Mobile Location Services and Smart Cities.

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 525 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. Visit the OGC website at www.opengeospatial.org.
