OGC Alliance Partners
Geospatial information is a cross-cutting requirement critical to many different domains, therefore we find that the OGC mission is aligned with the missions of many different organizations.
The members, board and staff of the OGC are grateful to our Alliance Partners, listed below, who work with us toward common objectives.
Many of these organizations collaborate with us on standards development, particularly when an interoperability solution depends on consistency between standards from different standards development organizations. Standards organizations look to the OGC for advice on how to encode geolocation in their standards and we look to them to learn what we must do to achieve harmonization across the standards stack.
We frequently test and validate standards through joint initiatives such as testbeds, interoperability experiments and pilot projects, and we collaborate on reference architectures to improve interoperability across communities of interest. With some of our partners, our main focus is to work together to reach out and educate at local, national and regional levels.
If your organization faces challenges that involve communication of geospatial information, we encourage you to talk with us to see if there are ways we might work together. See http://www.opengeospatial.org/contacts.
