The Open Geospatial Consortium, an international consortium setting geospatial standards, is pursuing interpretations on the "Earth Observation Satellite Tasking Extension for OGC® Sensor Planning Service (SPS)."
The SPS assembly promoted in this study encourages the scheduling of Earth Observation (EO) sensors. The standard principle illustrates one SPS configuration which can be reinforced by numerous satellite intelligence suppliers having current services towards administering the sensor schedule requests.
The SPS standard describes interfaces for inquiry that furnishes data about the potentiality and management of any category of sensor equipped with a digital output. The SPS standard and the EO-SPS standard comes under the OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) series of standards. The SWE standards aids developers to realize, depict, task, and access any transducer, Web enabled sensor or Internet and sensor data storehouse.
The OGC comprises more than 395 companies, research organizations, government agencies, and universities involving an agreement towards developing commonly accessible geospatial standards. The OGC Standard provides solutions that can "geo-enable" the Web, location-based services, wireless and mainstream IT. The OGC Standards also aid technology engineers to furnish geospatial data services for any geospatial purposes.
