- Begin SWG process to Revise OGC Abstract Specification Topic 2 - Spatial Referencing by Coordinates to the state of an adopted OGC standard and an identical ISO International Standard. The work will be conducted jointly with ISO TC211. ISO TC211 is to revise 19111 to accommodate advances in modern geodesy, to include the definition of CRSs having a "dynamic datum" - the reference frame is Earth-fixed but coordinates on the crust change with time due to tectonic activity - and enhanced capabilities for derived CRS definitions (such as a vertical CRS defined through a geoid model). The technical content of OGC Abstract Specification Topic 2 and ISO 19111:2007 are currently identical. It is in the interests of interoperability that these ISO and OGC standards remain aligned.
