Cloud Native Geospatial

Cloud-native geospatial offers many benefits to location data users ranging from decreasing the burden on data providers, to drastically lowering the costs of managing that data. Once the data is in the right cloud-native geospatial formats then it’s easy to tap into a rich ecosystem of platforms and tools without having to download large data files. This also increases the applicability of cloud-scale tools, and magnifies the impact of geospatial insights to a solution.

Marine Geospatial

OGC has been researching and developing solutions for interoperability in and across marine and coastal environments for more than a decade.

Climate Change and Disaster Resilience

The biggest threat facing Earth’s diverse inhabitants continues to increase. The changes to Earth’s climate – wrought through over consumption and the continued burning of fossil fuels – are now resulting in frequent extreme events and disasters.


The difficulties experienced when acquiring and operationalizing data in support of the COVID-19 pandemic provided a strong impetus for OGC to mobilize its community of global expertise to find practical solutions. Data collected at different levels of government is often neither standardized, integrated, nor interoperable.
