OGC announces Earth Observation Profile using ebXML-based Catalogue Services

A significant milestone has occurred for the use of ebXML Registry related technologies in the geospatial arena.

The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) has announced adoption and availability of the OGC Catalogue Services Standard Extension Package for ebRIM Application Profile: Earth Observation Products, and also the related Geography Markup Language (GML) Application Schema for EO Products.

Together, these standards will enable more efficient data publishing and discovery for a wide range of stakeholders who provide and use data generated by satellite-borne and aerial radar, optical and atmospheric sensors.

The OASIS standard ebRIM (Electronic business Registry Information Model) is the preferred cataloguing metamodel foundation for application profiles of the OpenGIS Catalogue Service Web (CS-W) Standard.
