OGC Seeks Public Comment on CDB Candidate Standard

This OGC Candidate Standard specifies an open format and encoding for the storage, access and modification of a representation of the natural and built environment for simulation applications. CDB defines the data representation, organization and storage structure of a worldwide synthetic representation of the earth as well as the conventions necessary to support all of the subsystems of full-mission simulators and networks of heterogeneous simulators. The Candidate Standard makes use of several commercial and simulation data formats that are in widespread use within the simulation industry. The organization of the synthetic environmental data in a CDB is specifically tailored for real-time applications. The CDB storage model supports applications in which inter-connected simulators share a common view of the simulated environment.

A database that conforms to this Candidate Standard can be readily used by existing simulation client-devices (legacy Image Generators, Radar simulator, Computer Generated Forces, etc.) through a data publishing process that is performed on-demand in real-time.

The OGC CDB Candidate Standard normative and informative content can be downloaded from the request page www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/152.

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.
