OGC is an international standards development organization (SDO) whose core mission is to deliver spatial interoperability interface and encoding specifications that are openly and freely available for use by the world's software developers. To develop international standards, OGC actively solicits the membership of technology providers and technology users from around the world.
But standards setting involves more than standards development. On behalf of its members, OGC also seeks to ensure that the standards become widely used. Recognizing that different places in the world have different market dynamics, and recognizing the barriers of long distances, language differences and cultural differences, OGC encourages OGC members to find ways to work together in their countries and world regions.
The goals and objectives of OGC's regional organizations differ as necessary to meet the particular needs and circumstances in their regions. But in general they seek to promote OGC membership, coordinate their participation in the OGC, and promote policies, co-operative business development initiatives and public/private partnerships that support the use of OGC standards.
