The OGC seeks comment on Unified Geo-Data Reference Model for Law Enforcement and Public Safety (LEAPS) Services

-The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership seeks public comment on the Unified Geo-Data Reference Model for Law Enforcement and Public Safety (LEAPS) Services, with the intent to establish this model as a new OGC Best Practice. The the Unified Geo-Data Reference Model for Law Enforcement and Public Safety (LEAPS) Services can be downloaded from http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/120. Comments are due by 17 July 2014

Open standards are essential if diverse systems are to provide law enforcement, civil security and public safety stakeholders with current and accurate role-based location information. The Unified Geo-Data Reference Model for Law Enforcement and Public Safety (LEAPS) Services specifies a framework that can be used to support interoperability at the data and services level.

The Unified Geo-Data Reference Model for Law Enforcement and Public Safety (LEAPS) Services document is the result of work undertaken since 2010 within the UAE Ministry of Interior's Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters GIS Center for Security (GIS CS). The reference model development effort also included other organizations.

The GIS CS is an active member of the OGC Law Enforcement and Public Safety Domain Working Group (LEAPS DWG), which provides a unifying forum in which local, national, regional and international law enforcement, civil security and public safety forces can work collaboratively on issues related to law enforcement, civil security and public safety.

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. Visit the OGC website athttp://www.opengeospatial.org/.

Apple, Sensors and Geodata Overload

What will we do with all of the Apple sensors: NFC, HealthKit, HomeKit, LED Sensors, barometers. Will they portend the beginning of yet another big data assault that will impact geospatial professionals? Will they catapult the “connected home” or “quantified self” craze? How will we use these data? Will standards be part of the adoption and who will own them?
