23 Open Geospatial Consortium ( OGC ) OGC is an international industry consortium of 258 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geoprocessing specifications. OGC Mission Our core mission is to deliver interface specifications that are openly available for global use. Open Geospatial Consortium

24 Our Vision - a world in which everyone benefits from geographic information and services made available across any network, application, or platform. OGC is an international organization: with major initiatives and partners in: North America Europe Australia India Open Geospatial Consortium ( OGC )

25 Software components from multiple vendors interact through consensus / open interfaces Consensus interfaces enable "one-to-many" interoperability: “How many one-to-one translations do you need to do before it becomes apparent that one-to-many is better and less expensive?” – Sam Bacharach, OGC GIS Vendor Consensus interface Open Geospatial Consortium ( OGC )
