18 August 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on proposed OGC standards for the representation of observations as timeseries, that is, a sequence of data values which are ordered in time.
The OGC Timeseries Profile of Observations and Measurements candidate standard is a conceptual model for the representation of observations data as timeseries, with the intent of enabling the exchange of such data sets across information systems. This standard does not define an encoding for the conceptual model, however there is an accompanying OGC candidate standard which defines an XML encoding (OGC TimeseriesML 1.0 – XML Encoding of the Timeseries Profile of Observations and Measurements). Other encodings may be developed in future.
These candidate OGC standards are available for review at www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/137. Comments are due by 2015-09-17.
The OGC is a not for profit international geospatial standards consortium of more than 510 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available standards. OGC's open standards support interoperable solutions that “geo-enable” the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at www.opengeospatial.org/contact.
