Modeling & Simulation Working Group

USGIF established the M&S WG to promote the value and use of improved interoperability of tools and technologies, best practices, and increased sharing of geospatial data across the M&S and GEOINT communities. The M&S WG hosts several workshops and meetings to address the economic value of interoperability and data sharing; what makes simulation data different and technically challenging compared with geospatial data; and best practices for the integration of modeling and simulation and geospatial programs in today’s collaborative environment.

Co-Chair: Daniel Maxwell

OGC along with alliance partners USGIF and SISO will be hosting a 3D Geospatial Modeling & Simulation Summit II meeting on Nov. 29. The event will be held in conjunction with the I/ITSEC 2017 Conference. This Summit event is convening to continue dialog among geospatial and M&S technology providers, the user community and standards organizations regarding the identification and advancement of open standards and related best practices to improve ingest, processing, distribution and application of M&S products and services.

Background on this effort can be found on the 3D Geospatial M&S Wiki at Visit the “November 2017 3D Geospatial Modeling and Simulation Summit II” link on this site to review the purpose and agenda, and to register for the Summit event. OGC members interested in joining the meeting in person may do so without registering for I/ITSEC conference. However, please note that in person attendees may not attend I/ITSEC exhibit or program activities unless they register for I/ITSEC separately at

For those OGC members interested in attending remotely, we will be working to enable access to the summit via GoToMeeting. Please register for the Summit II event as noted above. Indicate remote participation on the Summit II registration page, and GoToMeeting details will be forwarded to your email address.
