Esri ArcGIS 10.3 Now Certified OGC Compliant

January 26, 2015  - By 0 Comments

As part of Esri’s ongoing support of GIS interoperability, the latest ArcGIS 10.3 release is now certified as Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC), compliant.

Through its support for OGC specifications, ArcGIS users can access data and services from many different sources, regardless of the technology used by those sources, Esri said. In addition, users can share their content with others, including non-Esri users, contributing to the larger goals of the open data movement.

“Our goal is to help our users be successful, and Esri sees technical interoperability as a key driver to successful implementations,” said Dr. Satish Sankaran, Esri product manager for interoperability and member of the OGC Architecture Board.

The OGC leads the development of geospatial interoperability standards. Esri is a long-standing, active OGC participant, helping GIS users to seamlessly work together, Esri said.

Esri’s first OGC compliancy certificates were granted in 1999, and many more Esri ArcGIS platform products have met OGC compliancy since then.
