You are invited to attend a meeting of the OGC Marine Domain Working Group (DWG) in Vancouver, Canada, January 30^th 2017. The Marine DWG was established to address the gap in the OGC baseline with regards to marine geospatial data and to ensure knowledge is exchanged effectively between the relevant standards organizations, the OGC membership and the broader geospatial community. Although this group will not be the platform for creating new standards, it will be the platform to discuss and understand any issues, concerns, or barriers to interoperability to ensure that marine data can be effectively shared by the wider community. 

With the recently finalized IHO/OGC Memorandum, this is a great opportunity to bring the community together. The Marine DWG meeting will be held the day before the IHO MSDI working group meeting, which will be held at the same location, from January 31st to February 2nd , 2017. This meeting will introduce the Marine DWG to the representatives of the MSDIWG, discuss areas of focus for the Marine DWG, develop a Work Plan, and collect feedback from MSDIWG Representatives and Marine DWG Members. 

The high level activities of the DWG are expected to include; 

  • Discuss the content of a conceptual model for a MSDI.
  • Discuss the types of OGC services that might be useful in providing hydrographic and seafloor survey data e.g. chart features, high resolution bathymetric coverages through standardized interfaces. * Define any areas for standardization and create necessary Standards Working Groups to address the gaps in the OGC, IHO and IOGP standards baseline.
  • Explore the potential for an interoperability pilots and testbeds that help define the workflows for ensuring that marine geospatial data can be used for purposes other than navigation. This will include identifying potential sponsors.
  • Determine the Big Data potential for marine data and identify relevant standardized interfaces and experiment with testbeds. * Promote the development of OGC best practices and standards to meet the technical needs of MSDI

This Marine Domain Working Group is open for all and we encourage any interested organizations to attend. 

We hope to see you there!
