The OGC(R) Announces Updated OGC Reference Model

  • Rating12345

PR – The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) announced the completion and
availability of Version 2.0 of the OGC Reference Model (ORM). 
The ORM provides a framework for the ongoing work of the OGC and a guide
for those who seek to implement interoperable solutions and applications
for geospatial services and data. The ORM focuses on relationships
between the documents in the OGC Standards Baseline (SB), which consists
of the approved OpenGIS(R) Abstract and Implementation Standards
(Interface, Encoding, Profile, Application Schema) and OGC Best Practice

The ORM provides insight into the current state of the work of the OGC
and thus serves as a useful resource for defining architectures for
specific applications. It helps prospective members see how they might
serve their stakeholders by making a contribution to the OGC process,
and it provides overall guidance to developers who are implementing one
or more of the OpenGIS Standards. The ORM contains numerous links to OGC
resources that provide more detailed information. It is the result of
extensive development by hundreds of OGC Member Organizations and tens
of thousands of individuals who have contributed to the development of
OGC standards since 1994.
The OGC(R) is an international industry consortium of more than 365
companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities
participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available
interface specifications. OpenGIS(R) Specifications support
interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and
location-based services, and mainstream IT. The specifications empower
technology developers to make complex spatial information and services
accessible and useful with all kinds of applications. Visit the OGC
