OGC Announces International Earth Observation Satellite Tasking Standard

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 05, 2011 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has approved the Sensor Planning Service (SPS) Interface Standard 2.0 Earth Observation Satellite Tasking Extension standard as an official OGC standard. This standard is available for free download at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/sps.

The SPS 2.0 Earth Observation Satellite Tasking Extension Standard specifies extensions to the OGC Sensor Planning Service (SPS) 2.0 Interface Standard. The SPS configuration proposed in this extension is intended to support the programming process of Earth Observation (EO) sensor systems.

This standard describes a consistent SPS configuration that can be supported by many satellite data providers, most of whom have existing facilities for the management of these programming requests. The resulting extended web service interface can be used for

  • Determining the feasibility of an intended sensor planning request
  • Submitting such a request
  • Inquiring about the status of such a request
  • Updating or canceling such a request
  • Requesting information on means of obtaining the data collected by the requested task

SPS is one of the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/markets-technologies/swe) suite of standards.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 410 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC 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.
