Free Webinar Demo of OWS-6 Interoperability Testbed Results

On Wednesday, April 29, 2009, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT, the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) will conduct a free webinar demonstrating results from the OGC Web Services, Phase 6 (OWS-6) testbed activity.

In October, 2008 OWS-6 participants began a set of parallel development activities organized around geospatial interoperability requirements in the following areas:

1) Sensor Web Enablement (SWE)

2) Geo Processing Workflow (GPW)

3) Decision Support Services (DSS)

4) Aeronautical Information Management (AIM)

5) Compliance and Interoperability Test and Evaluation (CITE).

The webinar will demonstrate OWS-6 achievements involving Web services architecture and interoperability solutions that are documented in OGC Engineering Reports. The plan is to release the Engineering Reports as OGC public documents in July, 2009. The SWE, GPW and DSS portions of the demo will show how standards-enabled interoperability supports coordinated responses to a hypothetical disaster scenario involving an airport hostage crisis.

OWS-6 sponsors include:

US Dept. of Defense Joint Program Executive Office - Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD)
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) GeoConnections
US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA)
EUROCONTROL - The European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation
EADS N.V. Defence and Communications Systems (DCS)
US Geological Survey (USGS)
BAE Systems
Lockheed Martin Corporation
