The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), through its Innovation Program (IP), is advancing 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.

An engineering report (ER) from the related (and recently completed) ISG Sprint "year 1" initiative was approved for publication at the OGC December Member Meeting and will be published soon. Year 1 demonstration videos can be found on this OGC YouTube Playlist.

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

Specific Year 2 scope is under development, and a Call for Participation is expected to be issued in March.
