  • The OGC membership is highly diverse, with members from many countries and organizations. Member organizations range from small commercial firms, to extremely large systems integration companies, from county organizations to very large Federal agencies, from universities to research organizations. All are committed to extending the ability to integrate location (geography) into systems, workflows, architecture, constantly striving for increased interoperability of geospatial content and services.

    12. 12. Open architecture for Smart and Interoperable networks in Risk management based on Insitu Sensors <ul><li>OSIRIS is a Sixth Framework Programme Integrated Project of the European Commission, aligned with GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security). OSIRIS provides a Service Oriented Architecture based on standards, especially relying on and improving the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE). This architecture provides functionality ranging from in‐situ earth observation to user applications. </li></ul>
    13. 13. OSIRIS Application Objectives <ul><li>Within OSIRIS four key areas of major environmental risk are investigated: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>forest fires : early detection of forest fires and efficient handling of the crisis situation if a fire occurs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>industrial risks : more reliable fire detection by combining various sensor types and thus especially reducing the number of false alarms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>unexpected fresh water pollution : sensor networks for detecting natural arsenic concentration as well as accidental hydrocarbon pollutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>air pollution in urban areas : using mobile as well as fixed sensors linked to simulation models for assessing the air quality </li></ul></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
