OGC publishes results from its Testbed-14 Innovation Initiative
The Engineering Reports document state-of-the-art research across topics including OGC APIs, bringing ‘applications to the data’, federated clouds, and more
9 April 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is excited to announce that the Engineering Reports documenting the outcomes and achievements of 2018’s largest Research and Development (R&D) initiative, Testbed-14, are now published and freely available.
The Engineering Reports document state of the art research for a wide range of geospatial IT topics; always with a focus on interoperability and cross-domain communication. They describe prototypes developed by Testbed-14’s participating technology providers, and provide a clear vision on potential new or enhanced OGC standards.
The Engineering Reports developed from Testbed-14 focus on:
- On-demand deployment and execution of applications in clouds
- Web-friendly OGC APIs for geospatial data and processing
- Satellite data access
- Data modeling and Semantics
- Machine Learning, LiDAR, CityGML, Portrayal
- ...and more.
OGC’s annual Testbeds explore current geospatial IT challenges and develop solutions to support various communities, domains, and industry. Testbed-14 produced 21 Engineering Reports, covering a wide range of geospatial IT topics. As with all Testbeds, the results have now been handed over to the OGC Standards Program for further consideration in development of consensus-based open standards and best practices.
