Australian and New Zealand has played a key role in this testbed.

  • LISAsoft, Landgate, Landcare Research and CSIRO extended a Web Processing Service client to address testbed scenarios for supporting standardised algorithm access. Video at:
  • LISAsoft and CSIRO tested and recommended improvements for AIXM, an Aeronautical profile of Geographic Markup Language (GML). Video at:
  • LISAsoft defined the schema for the upcoming standard for OWS Context, a standard for storing all layers and other information on a map in a configuration file.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC's Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release.

The recently concluded testbed for OGC Web Services (OWS-7) covered: interoperability architectures, enhancements to existing and candidate standards for sensors, video change detection, database synchronization, information cataloguing, web processing services, event architecture and aviation.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 395 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.

LISAsoft is a Systems & Software Integration company with targeted expertise in GeoSpatial Standards, Spatial Data Infrastructures and Open Source Software.
