The OGC Collaborative Solutions and Innovation Program (COSI) aims to solve the biggest challenges in location. Explore Geospatial with our team of experts and your leading products and capabilities. We work in partnership with governments and industry across the world and fund our members to solve problems. One membership. Countless opportunities. See the full list of OGC active initiatives here.
OGC Members gain access to the Consortium’s adaptive, inclusive, well-balanced, and trusted programs & processes that have created a powerful and highly valued ecosystem of technological innovation undominated by a single industry or organization.
OGC’s quarterly Member Meetings are attended by the world’s foremost experts in location-based information technologies, and provide a neutral ground where even competitors work together to solve shared problems.

The objective of this pilot is to accelerate our collective readiness for accessing, fusing and analyzing data from the climate change modeling community with earth observation and social science data to contribute to the global push for achieving climate resilience. Our goal is to develop a reliable foundation for decision ready data services for climate change adaptation actions. For this purpose, OGC members engaged in this pilot will develop a series of demonstrators that show the integration and combined exploitation of climate data, EO data, and data from the social sciences.
OGC Disaster Pilot: Apply spatial data sharing standards together with Web technologies and cloud computing so that the responsible stakeholders can work together wherever they are located, use relevant data wherever they are stored, and manage every phase of a disaster at any scale wherever it threatens. In a global, cloud-scale disaster information ecosystem, awareness of threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts can be fostered and shared through joint development of workflow recipes that integrate and transform analysis-ready observation and prediction data (ARD) into decision ready indicators (DRI). Indicator workflows, ready to run and adaptable to each situation, provide the guidance that the right people at the right time in the right place need to make decisions, take actions, and improve disaster outcomes.
OGC Testbeds are OGC’s largest Collaborative Solution and Innovation (COSI) Program initiatives The COSI Program is formerly known as the Innovation Program. Testbeds boost research and development to make location data and information more FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-Usable. Additionally, testbeds provide a unique opportunity for sponsors to tackle location data and processing challenges together with the world’s leading geospatial IT experts.
Our initiatives promote rapid prototyping, testing, and validation of technologies, such as location standards or architectures. Within an initiative, OGC Members test and validate draft specifications to address geospatial interoperability requirements in real-world scenarios, business cases, and applied research topics.
This approach not only encourages rapid technology development, but also determines the technology maturity of potential solutions and increases the technology adoption in the marketplace.
