The OGC Technical Committee met December 10-12, 1996, to review the teams' detailed engineering specifications for interfaces that implement the basic feature components of the OpenGIS Abstract Specification.
There's a great deal more to do, but our members' achievement makes it clear that the OpenGIS process will result in the industry-standard interoperability architecture that we all hope for.
The OpenGIS Specification for CORBA will be chosen from among two submissions, one by Bentley Systems and the other by ESRI, Sun, and UCLA.
Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT.
The OpenGIS Symbology Encoding Implementation Specification defines Symbology Encoding, an XML language for styling information that can be applied to digital Feature and Coverage data.
The OpenGIS[R] Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) profile of the Web Map Service is, together with the OpenGIS Symbology Encoding Implementation Specification, the direct follow-up of Styled Layer Descriptor Implementation Specification 1.
OpenGIS Specifications support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT.
2) The OpenGIS
Image Geopositioning Service (IGS) Draft Implementation Specification defines an Image Geopositioning Service (IGS) interface to services that perform triangulation.
OGC Interoperability Initiatives include test beds, pilot projects, interoperability experiments and interoperability support services - all designed to encourage rapid development, testing, validation and adoption of OpenGIS
