OGC Announces XML Encoding Standard for Observations and Measurements

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 27, 2011 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has voted to adopt the OGC Observations and Measurements (O&M) -- XML Encoding Standard as an official OGC standard.

This standard specifies an XML implementation for the OGC and ISO Observations and Measurements (O&M) conceptual model (OGC Observations and Measurements v2.0, which is also published as ISO/DIS 19156), including a schema for Sampling Features. This encoding is an essential dependency for the OGC Sensor Observation Service (SOS) Interface Standard. More specifically, this standard defines XML schemas for observations and for features involved in sampling when making observations. These provide document models for the exchange of information describing observation acts and their results, both within and between different scientific and technical communities.

This standard and other standards that have resulted from the OGC's Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) effort ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/markets-technologies/swe) enable developers to make all types of sensors, transducers and sensor data repositories discoverable, accessible and useable via the Web.

The O&M XML standard is available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/om.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 415 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
