The OGC adopts “I15” standard providing ebRIM extension to OGC Catalog Services Interface Standard

 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership as adopted the OGC standard, "OGC I15 (ISO19115 Metadata) Extension Package of CS-W ebRIM Profile 1.0."

The OGC Catalogue Services Standard establishes a general framework for implementing catalogue services used for publishing and discovering geospatial data and geoprocessing services. The developers of the I15 standard anticipate that this standard will be useful to stakeholders in a wide variety of domains whose spatial metadata conform to the ISO19115 Metadata standard.

The I15 standard provides an extension package aligned with the ebRIM application profile of CS-W for the cataloguing of data and services whose metadata implements ISO geospatial metadata standards. The I15 Extension Package defines mechanisms that allow an ebRIM catalogue to manage and search ISO conformant metadata in ways that enable arbitrary, complex and deep searches involving multiple metadata elements.

The draft standard was initially produced during the ESA HMA (Heterogeneous Missions Accessibility) initiative (HMA) and related projects. The OGC OWS-9 testbed initiative tested the draft standard and provided input.

Download the OGC I15 (ISO19115 Metadata) Extension Package of CS-W ebRIM Profile 1.0 at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/cat.

Like all OGC standards, this standard is free and publicly available.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 475 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. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
