OGC GeoPose: tying the location and orientation of anything to the Earth’s surface
August 27, 11am 

Without a universally-accepted way to express, record and share the position and orientation of any real or synthetic (digital) object relative to the earth, each system that uses geospatial position and orientation must have its proprietary data model. The lack of a standard for expressing position and orientation leads to errors and incompatibilities and limits the potential reach and value of many geospatial data systems. The goal of the GeoPose SWG is to specify a data model and encoding for the position and orientation of any real or digital object and observer in the real world. When implemented, any GeoPose-compliant system will be able to anchor and orient any object at a location anywhere, on, in or around the Earth in a universally consistent manner.
