The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), supported by buildingSMART International (bSI), invites interested organizations to sponsor an OGC Innovation Program initiative that explores the current state-of-the-art in geospatial and BIM data integration based on meaningful real-world use cases. Both communities build on different data modeling approaches with respect to fundamental concepts, semantics, access, level-of-detail, and several other aspects.
The OGC Integrated Digital Built Environment Pilot seeks to understand the current level of interoperability between Geospatial and BIM and forge a path for better integrated solutions.The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), together with buildingSMART International (bSI), invite organizations to express their interest in sponsoring the OGC Integrated Digital Built Environment Pilot.The Pilot will explore, through real-world use cases, the current state-of-the-art in geospatial and Building Information Model (BIM) data integration and forge a path for better integrated solutions.With progress being made on both sides, the potential for data integration is better than ever before.buildingSMART is engaged with other international standards bodies such as ISO, the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

The OGC Testbed is an annual research and development program that explores geospatial technology from various angles. It takes the OGC Baseline into account, though at the same time allows to explore selected aspects with a fresh pair of eyes. Testbed-15 explores new levels of interoperable geospatial data processing with a focus on data-centric security, federated clouds, service & application discovery, portrayal, machine learning, and delta updates.
The Federated Marine SDI Demonstration Pilot will show how Marine SDI can unlock valuable data and information for more than the traditional providers and consumers of hydrographic data. Specifically, the Pilot will include one or more land/sea interface scenarios in order to demonstrate how federated Marine SDI can provide simple, secure access across borders and domains, and improve the connections between terrestrial and marine foundational communities.
OGC Testbeds are OGC’s largest Innovation Program initiatives. Testbeds boost research and development to make location data and information more FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-Usable. Testbeds provide a unique opportunity for sponsors to tackle location data and processing challenges together with the world’s leading geospatial IT experts.
Data cubes, multidimensional arrays of data, are used frequently these days, but differences in design, interfaces, and handling of temporal characteristics are causing interoperability challenges for anyone interacting with more than one solution. To address these challenges, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) invited global data cube experts to discuss state-of-the-art and way forward at the “Towards Data Cube Interoperability” workshop.
Urban areas across the globe are facing enormous challenges: population growth is increasing demand for energy, transport, housing, and other infrastructure while new technologies - from autonomous transport to IoT and indoor location - are providing solutions along with whole new challenges. Governments are looking for efficient, sustainable ways to meet the needs of residents.
OGC is the home of geospatial innovation, collaboration, and standards. We are an international membership organisation that supports a diverse community of 500+ businesses, government...
The Discussion Paper, entitled Built environment data standards and their integration: an analysis of IFC, CityGML and LandInfra, is free to download from OGC’s Discussion Papers webpage.The benefits of open standards are clear, and we encourage more engagement from both standards body representatives.The Built environment data standards and their integration: an analysis of IFC, CityGML and LandInfra discussion paper is free, along with many others, to download from OGC’s Discussion Papers webpage.Its members, who range from across the built environment spectrum, collaborate under the buildingSMART organization.buildingSMART is engaged with other international standards bodies such as ISO, the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
New discussion paper aims to coordinate the development of data standards produced by the two leading standards organizations in the fields of Geospatial and Building Information Modeling

The call for papers for the 2018 Symposium, including the Open Geospatial Standards track, is now openThe Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is excited to announce that it is hosting a special ‘Open Geospatial Standards’ track at the upcoming ISPRS Technical Commission IV Symposium 2018, to be held October 1-5, 2018 in Delft, Netherlands.The topics of the ISPRS Symposium cover the work of the Commissions 10 working groups, as well as - for the first time - a special Open Geospatial Standards track, hosted by OGC.The call for papers to be presented during the Open Geospatial Standards track is now open.Further information about the ISPRS Symposium can be found at the ISPRS Symposium web site.About ISPRS Technical Commission IVISPRS TC IV ‘Spatial Information sciences’ is one of the five Technical Commission of ISPRS and has a mandate of four years (2016-2020).
Engineering Reports document the outcomes of Testbed 13, including new interoperability prototypes and potential OGC standards.The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has released 24 Engineering Reports, created from the research undertaken during its Testbed 13 initiative.The Engineering Reports document interoperability prototypes developed by Testbed 13’s participating technology providers, and describe work-in-progress on potential new OGC standards, as well as work done to validate candidate standards or improve existing OGC standards.While OGC Engineering Reports are not standards, the information they contain is intended to be useful to developers and implementers of OGC standards.OGC standards support interoperable solutions that ‘geo-enable’ the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT.
On October 14th, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) will demonstrate the results of the eleventh OGC Interoperability Testbed.The OGC North American Forum (NAF), a group of 53 OGC members in North America, addresses OGC standards requirements, OGC program coordination, outreach and education needs of government, academic, research and industry organizations in Canada, US and Mexico.Some of the prototypes may ultimately become OGC standards, revisions to existing OGC standards, or best practices for using OGC standards.Some of the Testbed 11 sponsors have already begun assembling interoperability requirements for Testbed 12, which will begin in the fall.Learn more about the 15 year old OGC Interoperability Program in which OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are organized, planned and managed.
