The UN-GGIM Secretariat requested OGC, ISO, and IHO (IHO) create a guide that explains the importance of open standards supporting the development of Spatial Data Infrastructure.
Structured around a set of three “tiers”, covering single enterprises up to complex multiple information communities and beyond.
The guide provides a model for the phased implementation of geospatial standards, considering the different levels of experience and expertise of the players involved.
Excerpt from the decisions of the Fifth Session of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM). Held from 3-7 August 2015 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. 5/108 Implementation and adoption of standards for the global geospatial information community The Committee of Experts: (a) Welcomed the report by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Technical Committee 211 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO/TC 211) and the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), and thanked them and their many experts for their collaborative efforts in producing and finalising the Standards Guide and Companion Document. (b) Adopted the final published “Guide to the Role of Standards in Geospatial Information Management” and the “Technical Compendium” as the international geospatial standards best practice for spatial data infrastructure, and encouraged all Member States to adopt and implement the recommended standards appropriate to their countries’ level of spatial data infrastructure (SDI) maturity. (c) Encouraged Member States to continue to work in cooperation with the international standards bodies, including participation, as appropriate, in the work programmes of the OGC, ISO/TC211 and the IHO, and requested the standards organisations to consider mechanisms to facilitate wider training programmes and to ensure the access to standards on reasonable terms, especially for developing countries;
