The OGC(R) Announces Successful OWS-6 TestbedKick-off Event

November 10, 2008, Wayland, Massachusetts. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) completed a successful kick-off meeting October 14-17 for the OGC Web Services, Phase 6 (OWS-6) Interoperability Initiative, a testbed to advance OGC’s open interoperability framework for
geospatial capabilities.

The organizations sponsoring OWS-6 seek to develop and improve on the open standards for their interoperability requirements. The
content of the OWS-6 initiative is organized around the following threads:

  • Sensor Web Enablement (SWE)
  • Geo Processing Workflow (GPW)
  • Aeronautical Information Management (AIM)
  • Decision Support Services (DSS)
  • Compliance Testing (CITE)

The list of sponsors and details about the content of the threads are available at https://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/50. Teams of participants — vendors, integrators and universities — will work in each of these areas to develop candidate standards and best practices that will be featured in an interoperability demonstration in the summer of 2009.
