Surface Water Interoperability Experiment concluded

|   News

Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) releases final report for SWIE.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) announced the publishing of its final report on the Surface Water Interoperability Experiment. The report describes the methods, results, issues, and recommendations generated by the Surface Water Interoperability Experiment (SWIE), carried out by the Hydrology Domain Working Group (HDWG). The SWIE was designed to advance the development of WaterML 2.0 and test its use with various OGC service standards such as SOS, WFS, WMS, and CSW.

A secondary aim was to contribute to the development of a hydrology domain feature model and vocabularies, which are essential for interoperability in the hydrology domain, although these are not the main focus for the experiment.

KISTERS is a proud member of the OGC and a key contributor to the the SWIE. Other organizations who contribute to the success of the SWIE include:

  • Disy Informationssysteme GmbH
  • Deltares USA
  • USGS
  • Office International de l'Eau - Sandre
