The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has announced the formation of a new Climate Resilience Domain Working Group (DWG), the aims of which will be aligned with those of the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs).
Recent OGC member meetings and other discussion forums have expressed great interest in affirming the so-called FAIR data principles — Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
The aim of the Climate Resilience DWG is to provide an open forum for the discussion and presentation of interoperability requirements, use cases, pilots, and implementations of OGC Standards in the context of climate actions.
To that end, DWG activities will include defining, collecting, analysing and communicating data streams to build value from raw data through information visualisation and interpretation.
The DWG will support actions that accelerate readiness to access, fuse and analyse data related to climate change via Earth Observation data or any other type of data relevant for climate action.
