Call for Participation

The Call for Participation (CFP) is available in HTML format and in PDF format. Proposals in response to the CFP are due on April 30.

Background and Goal

The Interoperable Simulation and Gaming (ISG) Year 2 initiative will build on momentum established during the recently completed ISG Sprint (year 1), documented in the ISG Sprint Engineering Report. Additional results are demonstrated in this YouTube Playlist.

This OGC Innovation Program (IP) initiative will advance geospatial interoperability of systems exchanging 3D content. OGC is working with the Khronos Group and various OGC Working Groups to advance interoperability of 3D geospatial and computer graphics using OGC CDB, Khronos glTF, and related 3D standards. Prototyping work is advancing interoperability for Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination, as well as open standard interfaces critical to enabling novel combinations of emerging technologies to bridge Special Operations Forces (SOF) capability gaps.


Year 2 activities will focus more directly on CDB, building on recommendations of the rapid prototyping activities conducted during the SOFWERX 3D Geospatial Series Tech Sprint II - OGC CDB 2.0 (aka CDB X).
