Description: OGC OWS testbeds are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on and 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. OWS 11 focuses on spatial communication requirements that emerge when a population is displaced due to coastal inundation. It builds on the outcomes of prior OGC testbeds and is organized around the following threads:
1. Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI),
2. Urban-Climate Resilience (UCR) and
3. Geospatial Enhancements for NIEM (Geo4NIEM).
52°North contributes its expertise to two testbed threads: Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI) and Urban-Climate Resilience (UCR). Within the CCI thread, 52°North tackles the problems of gathering heterogeneous data from different Social Media platforms and making them available through standardized interfaces for further processing. The data will be used in an emergency response scenario and the experience will be summarized in an OGC public engineering report. 52°North will enhance its processing service with the WPS 2.0 interface in the UCR thread. In addition, processes will be developed to support the UCR flooding/inundation scenario.
