29 October 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments on a draft NWIP (New Work Item Proposal) package intended for submission to ISO TC 211 to kick off a project to update ISO 19107:2003 Geographic information – Spatial Schema.

ISO 19107:2003 has been adopted as the OGC Abstract Specification for Geometry. Since this document is the world standard for the representation of geographic geometry, it is used (directly or indirectly) by nearly every specification and standard for geospatial data representations for both ISO and OGC. 19107 is also used by other standards organizations that use OGC standards directly as a cited source or that mimic OGC structures. In updating the Spatial Schema after 10 years of use, ISO TC 211 and the OGC will have to balance the needs for backward compatibility and the needs for new and more appropriate functionality.

This NWIP package was prepared by the OGC Simple Features Standards Working Group in its efforts to update the OGC Simple Features Abstract Specification, which depends heavily on the Spatial Schema.

Download the draft proposal from https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=55538&version=1

Comments are due by 28 November, 2013. All comments received will be submitted by OGC to the ISO and will be adjudicated in the ISO process. The ISO will provide  a formal response to the OGC that will be published before the ISO standard is put to a final vote as an International Standard.

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.
