OGC seeks interested parties for public transit modeling activity

September 9, 2002 – The Open GIS Consortium has invited expressions of interest from industry organizations to participate in a Model Advisory Team (MAT) regarding a nationwide Transportation Framework Data Content Standard, specifically the Public Transit component. This Transit MAT will develop data content standards and an associated Abstract Feature Model in Unified Modeling Language (UML), which will support the exchange of mapping information about public transit features between cooperating organizations and communities. This task is part of a larger effort to develop data content standards and other capabilities for the Geospatial One-Stop project currently underway by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). Content standards and models resulting from the MAT process will be submitted to American
National Standards Institute (ANSI) for adoption.
