ISO/TC 211 is a standard technical committee formed within ISO, tasked with covering the areas of digital geographic information (such as used by geographic information systems) and geomatics. It is responsible for preparation of a series of International Standards and Technical Specifications numbered in the range starting at 19101. Current Chairman of this committee is Olaf Østensen.

Scope[edit]

ISO/TC 211 is concerned with the standardization in the field of digital geographic information.[1] This work aims to establish a structured set of standards for information concerning objects or phenomena that are directly or indirectly associated with a location relative to the Earth.

Project specification areas within the ISO/TC 211 technical committee include:

The ISO/TC 211 work is closely related to the efforts of the Open Geospatial Consortium. ISO/TC 211 have numerous liaisons with other organizations that often results in identical or nearly identical standards often being adopted by both organizations.[2]

Working Groups[edit]

The work within ISO/TC211 is done in working groups, each with a specific focus. The currently active working groups are:

  • Working Group 4 - Geospatial services[3]
  • Working Group 6 - Imagery[4]
  • Working Group 7 - Information communities[5]
  • Working Group 9 - Information management[6]
  • Working Group10 - Ubiquitous public access[7]

There are also a number of disbanded Working Groups:[8]

  • Working Group 1 - Framework and reference model
  • Working Group 2 - Geospatial data models and operators
  • Working Group 3 - Geospatial data administration
  • Working Group 5 - Profiles and functional standards
  • Working Group 8 - Location based services

Revision of standards that were previously part of these working groups are now done directly under the TC since the disbandment of the groups.
