Wayland, Mass., 15 March, 2010 - The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.
(OGC®) seeks public comment on the draft OGC Sensor Web Enablement
(SWE) Common Encoding Standard Version 2.0.  The SWE Common
standard provides a common data encoding that is used throughout the
OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards suite. More precisely, the
SWE Common model is used to define the representation, nature,
structure and encoding of sensor related data.

This model is used for describing static data (files) as well as
dynamically generated datasets (on-the-fly processing), data subsets,
process and web service inputs and outputs and real time streaming
data. All categories of sensor observations are in scope ranging from
simple in-situ temperature data to satellite imagery and full motion
video streamed out of an aircraft.

The SWE Common language is an XML implementation of this model and is
used by other existing OGC® Sensor Web Enablement standards such
as Sensor Model Language (SensorML), Sensor Observation Service (SOS),
Sensor Alert Service (SAS) and Sensor Planning Service (SPS).

The proposed OGC SWE Common 2.0 standard and information on submitting
comments on this document are available at
http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/63.  The
public comment period closes on 14 April 2010.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 390 companies,
government agencies, research organizations, and universities
participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available
geospatial standards. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions
that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and
mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make
geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any
application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Visit the OGC
