This international industry consortium as of June 2008 included 369 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface specifications. OpenGIS Specifications support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. The specifications empower technology developers to make complex spatial information and services accessible and useful with all kinds of applications... Underlying all the committees, working groups, test beds and other OGC activities is a member approved process that encourages collaboration among and between OGC members to define, document, and implement open specifications that solve geospatial interoperability problems. The OGC exists to enable a fast, effective, inclusive, user-driven process to develop, test, demonstrate, and promote the use of geospatial information and services by using OpenGIS Specifications..."
