  5. 5. De Facto OGC and IT standards OASIS/IETF/ W3C OGC Infrastructure: ISO Software Interfaces: WSDL, UDDI, instantiate domain and SOAP, XML, REST Domains: object/ de jure standards into abstract models, Infrastructure content, vocabularyDe Jure Domain Infrastructure © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  6. 6. OGC formal relationships with ISO• ISO TC 211 – Geomatics• ISO TC 204 – Intelligent Transportation Systems• ISO/IEC JTC1 Working Group 7 – Sensor Networks• ISO/IEC JTC1 SC 29/WG 11 – MPEG-A (Part 13) © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  7. 7. OGC and ISO/TC 211• OGC is a voluntary consensus standards organisation, ISO is a de jure (by law) standards organisation• OGC develops ‘standards’, ISO develops ‘Standards’• OGC membership is comprised of commercial, government, research, NGO and university organisations, ISO representation is at national, country level• The OGC is a Class A Liaison member of ISO/TC 211, this means the OGC can submit standards for processing and approval as ISO Standards © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  8. 8. ISO TC 211 Standards / OGC Abstract Specifications• ISO 19107: Spatial Schema is OGC AS Topic Volume 1• ISO 19115: Metadata is OGC AS Topic Volume 2• ISO 19119: Services is AS Topic Volume 12• ISO 19148 Linear Referencing approved as an OGC AS Topic Volume 11 © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  9. 9. Joint Advisory Group (JAG)• The Joint Advisory Group (JAG) comprises ISO/TC 211 and OGC members• Meets alternately at ISO/TC 211 and OGC TC/PC meetings• Goal of the JAG is to ensure proper and consistent communication and coordination between the OGC and ISO/TC 211 © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  10. 10. Status of joint documents June 2012 (OGC submission to ISO)• Spatial Referencing by Coordinates [19111] AS Topic Volume 1• Simple Features 1.1 [ISO 19125-1 and 2]• OGC Geography Markup Language 3.2.1 [ISO 19136]• OGC Web Map Service 1.3 [ISO 19128]• Web Feature Service 2.0 [ISO 19142] and Filter Encoding 2.0 [ISO 19143]• Observations and Measurements 1.0 approved as an OGC Abstract Specification Topic Volume [ISO 19156] © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  11. 11. OGC and ISO/TC 211 overview Standards for exchanging geospatial and temporal data in development since early 1994 through OGC and ISO/TC 211; Web services since 2000.• ISO TC211 standards form the foundation – 19103 Conceptual schema – 19107 Spatial schema – 19108 Temporal schema – 19111 Coordinate reference – 19115 Metadata – 19123 Coverage schema• OGC standards that implement or reference ISO standards – Web Mapping Service (WMS): simple graphic images – Web Feature Service (WFS): vector data – Web Coverage Service (WCS): gridded data – Catalog Service: portal index – Geography Markup Language (GML): XML schema and data © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
  12. 12. OGC and ISO/TC 211 example• Air Quality Community of Practice, in conjunction with GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot-2 (AIP-2)• A community catalog for air quality data to be harvested/searched by the GEOSS Clearinghouse• Using ISO 19115/119 as a metadata framework• Using OGC WMS/WCS as initial source of metadata for catalog records• Combination of ISO 19119, service description, and 19115, data description• An example of how OGC and ISO standards are related• OGC WFS is also now an ISO standard 19142: 2010 © 2012 Open Geospatial Consortium
