  9. 9. GeoNetwork Community of Practice ISO/TC211 Mirror group IT‐004 in Standards Australia The following standards have been published in the last year: • ISO 19104:2016 Geographic Information – Terminology • ISO 19110:2016 Geographic Information – Methodology for feature cataloguing • ISO/TS 19115-3:2016 Geographic Information – Metadata -- Part 3: XML schema implementation for fundamental concepts • ISO 19119:2016 Geographic Information – Services • ISO/TS 19157-2:2016 Geographic information -- Data quality -- Part 2: XML schema implementation • ISO/TS 19159-2:2016 Geographic information -- Calibration and validation of remote sensing imagery sensors and data -- Part 2: Lidar • ISO/TS 19163-1:2016 Geographic information -- Content components and encoding rules for imagery and gridded data -- Part 1: Content model
  10. 10. GeoNetwork Community of Practice OGC The March OGC Meeting (Delft, the Netherlands) covered topics and standards relevant to Australia and New Zealand (and particularly the FSDF) including: • Discrete Global Grid which supports the international take-up on the DataCube initiative and other data at regional and global scales. • Location Powers Summit – the geo-data structure requirements of linking geospatial information with communities and citizens. • LandInfra, Smart Cities, 3DIM, CityGML and SensorThings interest groups held a forum to further explore the model requirements to improve interoperability across these groups. The LandInfra standard will be one of the reference standard to assist in this process. • Land Administration will support the initiatives of the UN and World Bank associated with SDG. • Point Cloud – LAS 1.4 Specification is being submitted as an OGC Community Standard • Geocoding API – early stages discussion to establish the need for a standard.
  11. 11. GeoNetwork Community of Practice OGC Australia is contributing or leading in a number of OGC Standards Work. These are: • WaterML2.0 • Soil Data Interoperability Experiment • Spatial Data on the Web • Discrete Global Grid System • GeoSemantics • LandInfra • Metadata
