OGC Announces April 29 Webinar Demo of OWS-6 Interoperability Testbed Results

WAYLAND, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 21, 2009 — On Wednesday, April 29, 2009, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT, the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) will conduct a free webinar demonstrating results from the OGC Web Services, Phase 6 (OWS-6) testbed activity.

In October, 2008 OWS-6 participants began a set of parallel development activities organized around geospatial interoperability requirements in the following areas:

1) Sensor Web Enablement (SWE)

2) Geo Processing Workflow (GPW)

3) Decision Support Services (DSS)

4) Aeronautical Information Management (AIM)

5) Compliance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE).

The webinar will demonstrate OWS-6 achievements involving Web services architecture and interoperability solutions that are documented in OGC Engineering Reports. The plan is to release the Engineering Reports as OGC public documents in July, 2009. The SWE, GPW and DSS portions of the demo will show how standards-enabled interoperability supports coordinated responses to a hypothetical disaster scenario involving an airport hostage crisis.

OWS-6 sponsors include:

US Dept. of Defense Joint Program Executive Office - Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD)
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) GeoConnections
US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA)
EUROCONTROL - The European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation
EADS N.V. Defence and Communications Systems (DCS)
US Geological Survey (USGS)
BAE Systems
ERDAS, Inc.
Lockheed Martin Corporation

OGC’s Interoperability Program is a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate standards. In OGC’s Interoperability Initiatives, an international team of technology providers work together to solve specific geo-processing interoperability problems posed by the initiative’s sponsoring organizations.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 380 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OpenGIS® 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.
