Cadcorp is a long-standing technical member of the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.® (OGC), and has been at the forefront of the application of open technologies and standards in GIS and web mapping. It is this open and standards-based approach that defines our data sharing ability.
The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.®(OGC) is an international industry consortium that includes a growing number of companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface specifications. OpenGIS® Specifications support interoperable solutions that ‘geo-enable’ the web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT.
The specifications empower technology developers to make complex spatial information and services accessible and useful with all kinds of applications.
Since 1997, Cadcorp has been heavily involved in the activity of the OGC, and has contributed to several OGC Implementation Specifications, including those for Web Map Services and Web Feature Services.
Cadcorp technical director Martin Daly is an OGC Gardels Medal holder for his contribution to the OGC, and was one of the original members of the OGC Architecture Board.
