OGC Requests Comment on Charter for Group Developing a Terrain Modeling Standard

Feb. 27, 2015—Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the draft charter for an OGC Common DataBase Standards Working Group. This Standards Working Group (SWG) is being formed to develop and propose one or more candidate standards for a common terrain database model and encoding useful for both runtime synthetic environment generation and terrain database repositories for modeling and simulation.

This SWG will begin work by examining and considering the existing Common DataBase (CDB) Specification Version 3.2 that is currently maintained as a de-facto industry standard by CAE Inc. The convener and charter members believe that the existing CDB specification is a combination of a data model, an encoding specification, and engineering practices / tutorials tailored for implementers of CDB. An early deliverable of the SWG will be a recommendation of which specific OGC standards products and documents are appropriate for conversion of the existing specification to fit more closely within the architecture of OGC standards and practices.

The proposed OGC Common DataBase SWG charter can be downloaded from https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/62190.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please send them to charter-requests@opengeospatial.org

This is a 30 day review period. The review and comment period will end 29 March 2015.

The convener of the OGC Common DataBase Standards Working Group is David Graham, CAE Inc.

The following charter members of the SWG are committed to the charter and projected meeting schedule. Others may join this list before the SWG is officially chartered.

  • David Graham, CAE Inc.
  • Mike Lokuta, CAE USA, Inc.
  • Steve Liang, University of Calgary
  • Dan Maxwell, KadSci

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 500 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. Visit the OGC website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/.
