Open Geospatial Consortium – Global Earth Observation Collaboration

For several years, CRIM has contributed to the activities of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) innovation program, in collaboration with prestigious organizations such as Ouranos (Consortium on Regional Climatology and Adaptation to Climate Change), Natural Resources Canada, Environment Canada, the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ), NASA and the European Space Agency.

Development of new geospatial standards

Among other things, CRIM is working to make environmental data more accessible and interoperable in order to support the work of the decision-maker and analyst community, while integrating certain AI tools.

Our experts are developing powerful applications that will be able to:

  • Analyze large volumes of heterogeneous Earth data using artificial intelligence;
  • Make them interoperable on next-generation platforms;
  • Make them accessible in formats recognized by all.

 

The benefits of this standardization and interoperability work are clear: the flow and sharing of data between people and computers is facilitated; developers now have the ability to create compatible applications and services.

Other projects with OGC

In addition, our experts frequently participate in OGC projects and testbeds that support the development of best practices in the geospatial domain.

Our contribution to the OGC Earth Observation Applications Pilot project, developed as part of the OGC innovation program over the last few years, has been presented through short videos. These videos allow to explain CRIM’s approach and to present the different applications used in the framework of this project which aims at exploring and evaluating the maturity of Earth observation applications architecture.
