OGC Web Services (OWS) as applied to the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS) architecture were successfully demonstrated at a Workshop on 24 July 2005 in Seoul, Korea on the opening day of the International Geosciences and Remote Sensing Symposium, IGARSS 2005. The workshop, titled “The User and the GEOSS Architecture – Applications for Asia and Pacific Rim,” was originated by the IEEE Committee on Earth Observation (CEO) and co-sponsored by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS).

The OGC Demonstration applied components with a wide range of OWS interfaces in a scenario of damage assessment from the recent Andaman Sea Tsunami. The demonstration was developed by OGC Members Boeing S&IS Mission Systems (US), DM Solutions Group (Canada) (in partnership with several East Asian Universities), the European Space Agency (ESA) (including Spacebel as contractor), George Mason University (GMU) (US), Intergraph (US), the US National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), PCI Geomatics (Canada), Raytheon (US), Spot Image (Canada), and the US Geological Survey (USGS).
