Welcome to the Geospatial3DMS web
Increasing the level of interoperability across the M&S community is a major goal of this 3D Geospatial Modeling & Simulation project. A common overall interoperability framework is needed to assure that all relevant tools, processes data sources and distribution options can be rapidly mobilized and enhanced with minimal time, effort and cost to meet the growing needs of the user community.
The Open Geospatial Consortium, the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization, and the US Geospatial-Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) are joining forces to encourage broad collaboration on the identification, prioritization and advancement of key standards and best practices to benefit the M&S community and with the broad global based of users and content providers. Through this coordination we seek to unite technology providers, content providersand practitioners to assure that our overall interoperability approach in standards development and deployment is well coordinated and that M&S and broader user community interests are addressed.
Our goal is to establish a cross-organizational focus group to help identify, prioritize and influence the direction of supporting organizations in a way that meets urgent community needs, minimizes redundancy of effort, and achieves scales of economy and outcomes that could not be achieved by any organization working in isolation.
