OpenGeospatial Member Meeting

The OGC will have their member meeting w/o 15 June. The meeting will be 
conducted through GoToMeeting.

Of potential interest is the session at 10:10 on Tuesday (16 June) by 
the Geopose Standards Working Group (SWG) led by Christine Perey.

    All physical world objects inherently have a geographically-anchored
    pose. Unfortunately, there is not a standard for universally
    expressing the pose in a manner which can be interpreted and used by
    modern computing platforms. The main purpose of this SWG will be to
    develop and propose a standard for geographically-anchored pose
    (geopose) with 6 degrees of freedom referenced to one or more
    standardized Coordinate Reference Systems (CRSs).

        *Definition of geopose*

        A real object in space can have three components of translation
        – up and down (z), left and right (x) and forward and backward
        (y) and three components of rotation – Pitch, Roll and Yaw.
        Hence the real object has six degrees of freedom.

        The combination of position and orientation with 6 degrees of
        freedom of objects in computer graphics and robotics are usually
        referred to as the object’s “pose.” Pose can be expressed as
        being in relation to other objects and/or to the user. Some part
        of the object must be recognized as the anchor (or origin) of
        the position. When a pose is defined relative to a geographical
        frame of reference or coordinate system, it will be called a
        geographically-anchored pose, or geopose for short.
