OGC Calls for Industry Input on Geospatial Fusion

WAYLAND, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 16, 2009 The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/59) to solicit industry input into a Fusion Standards Study to be conducted in preparation for the planned OGC Web Services, Phase 7 (OWS-7) Testbed. OGC also seeks to establish alliances with other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) having technology relevant to fusion.

In the context of this RFI, “Fusion is the act or process of combining two or more pieces of data or information regarding one or more entities in order to improve the capability for detection, identification, or characterization of that entity”.

This RFI is based on requirements and contributions from several OGC Member organizations, including the National Geospatial-intelligence Agency (NGA), BAE Systems - C3I Systems, and Lockheed Martin.

The Study will conduct a survey of standards and implementations that support geospatial fusion. It will review existing standards regarding fusion; recommend future standards or integration or harmonization of standards; and plan for evaluating standards through OGC’s OWS-7 testbed to be conducted later this year.

Responses to the RFI are requested by August 12, 2009. The RFI includes instructions for how organizations can respond. Please contact George Percivall at Email Contact with any questions.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC's Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release.

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.
