Mobile devices are rapidly becoming the preferred platform for geospatial technology access and use. Mobile technology and market forces are shaping the mobile internet, of which mobile GIS is a component. A convergence of mobile technology, bandwidth, sensors, real time data access, standards, and user demand is creating a rich environment for forward thinking in geospatial standards development. In response, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has a number of standards activities focused on the requirements of the mobile geospatial/GIS community. This presentation will provide an overview of the most recent standards work in the OGC related to the mobile internet. This work includes development of ARML (Augmented Reality Markup Language), InDoorGML (model and encoding for semantically rich indoor/building content), Open GeoSMS (location enabled SMS), and the Sensor Web for the Internet of Things (IoT).
