Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international industry standards group founded in 1994 to make geographic information an integral part of the world’s information infrastructure. OGC members – technology providers and technology users – collaboratively develop open interface standards and associated encoding standards, and also best practices, that enable developers to create information systems that can easily exchange “geospatial” information and instructions with other information systems.
