OGC Requests Participation in its Land Administration DWG

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is calling for public participation in its newly-established Land Administration Domain Working Group (Land Admin DWG).

Worldwide, effective and efficient land administration is an ongoing concern, as only a small number of nations have mature land information systems, and few others have some for of land administration capability in place. Location is a crucial aspect of land administration, and OGC’s experience in solving spatial interoperability issues makes it well suited to provide guidance and insight to nations looking to establish or overhaul land administration systems.

The purpose of the DWG is to: examine existing systems and applicable standards for land administration; prepare the best practices that will enable nations to address their needs in less time, cost, or effort through standards-based implementations; and create dialog surrounding the integration of emerging information resources and/or technologies to assist nations in rapidly gaining capabilities.

Additionally, this DWG will identify and mature proposals for industry interoperability assessments, pilots, and experiments designed to bring together users and technology providers to test, demonstrate, and validate best practices that can be used to guide the acquisition and implementation of sustainable, scalable, and interoperable systems.

The OGC is looking for interested parties to assist the Land Admin DWG in achieving these goals. Details on the Land Admin Domain Working Group can be found at: URL, with the charter available at: https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/68770. Interested parties can join the email list at: LandAdmin.dwg email list.

The Land Admin DWG is being coordinated with related activities in other standards development organizations, such as ISO, W3C, OASIS, and RICS to better address interoperability issues that span the geospatial and broader IT environment.

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 515 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.
