Open Geospatial Consortium

Good Morning! I get to work from home part of the day today since I have a meeting near my house. It was good timing because it is cold and icy in places. What a change from this past weekend when I was wearing t-shirts. Have a good day and stay warm!!

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) is a non-profit, international, voluntary consensus standards organization that is leading the development of standards for geospatial and location based services. Through their member-driven consensus programs, OGC works with government, private industry, and academia to create open and extensible software application programming interfaces for geographic information systems (GIS) and other mainstream technologies. Adopted specifications are available for the public's use at no cost. Check them out at
