Meteorology and Oceanography Domain Working Group

Meteorology and Oceanography Domain Working Group

The OGC Meteorology and Oceanography DWG was established to ensure that OGC standards and profiles allow the meteorological community to develop effective interoperability for web services and content across the wider geospatial domain. Meteorological and oceanographic data, in general, are/is multidimensional, continually evolving, highly spatial and highly temporal in nature. This Meteorology and Oceanography Domain Working Group brings together OGC members in an open forum of the wider meteorological and oceanographic communities to work on oceanographic, meteorological and climatological data, metadata, and web services interoperability, greatly improving the way in which this information is described, shared and used. Please join the MetOcean DWG mailing list to stay up-to-date on group activities and post questions for this community of experts.
