Geospatial

Referring to location relative to the Earth's surface. Geospatial is more precise in many contexts than geographic, because geospatial information is often used in ways that do not involve a graphic representation, or map, of the information. Source: Open Geospatial Consortium

OGC Geo4NIEM Testbed

Validate and provide recommendations to enhance National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) 3.0 architecture related to the Intelligence Community (IC) data encoding specifications (i.e., ISM, NTK, and TDF) aligned to Open Geospatial Consortium's (OGC) Testbed 9 work.

Provide recommendations to enable full-round-tripping from NIEM information exchange packages (IEP) to Geography Markup Language (GML) features and back to provide a comprehensive view of NIEM and GML capabilities and to document NIEM architectural gaps.

Incident Management Information Sharing (DHS S&T)

Current systems that are implemented to support the emergency management community are typically developed using proprietary data models that may inhibit information sharing. The IMIS Framework recommends an architecture where standard information encodings and standard data services are implemented in the IMIS-compliant systems to support the necessary data exchanges and improve overall interoperability between systems holding information and systems supporting consumers of the information.
