About Geoscience.DWG
English (USA)

The GeoScience Domain Working Group aims to connect people concerned about environment and resources to develop, improve and promote technologies for GeoScience data description and sharing. This working group is to be hosted by the OGC and co-chaired with CGI / IUGS.

GeoScience usually encompasses several scientific domains which all aim to provide a better understanding, representation and more generally acknowledgment of the Earth: Geology, Geophysics, Hydrogeology, Mineralogy, Seismology, Tomography or Volcanology.

Those themes are deeply linked and need to be studied together to provide a global Earth Science System. Indeed, in administrative national or sub-national organizations, GeoScience most of the time constitutes the scope of Geological Surveys (e.g. BRGM for France, BGS for the UK, NR-CAN for Canada, Geoscience Australia for Australia etc…).

As GeoScience must be studied as a whole, a dedicated domain working group shall be created to address associated problems.

The purpose of the GeoScience DWG is to provide an open forum for work on geoscience data interoperability and access. To this end, the open forum will encourage collaborative development among participants representing many organizations and communities, and will ensure appropriate liaisons to other relevant working groups, both inside and outside OGC.
