OGC Compliance Overview – Guide for Software Acquisition White Paper Available

April 21, 2015 — The OGC membership has approved “OGC Compliance Overview - Guide for Software Acquisition” as an official OGC white paper. The document is located here: http://docs.opengeospatial.org/wp/15-002r5/15-002r5.html.

This white paper provides an overview of the OGC compliance process. It describes the benefits of acquiring OGC compliant products, as opposed to products that implement OGC standards but have not been certified as being OGC compliant.

The white paper also provides guidance regarding language to use in specifying requirements for OGC compliant products in software acquisition (procurement) documents.  Government procurements that specifically require OGC compliant products maximize the likelihood of system-to-system interoperability and efficient sharing of geospatial data.
