The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks comments on the draft charter of a proposed Statistical Domain Working Group (DWG).
The Statistical DWG is proposed to identify requirements and use cases of how geospatial and statistical standards can support the integration of geospatial information into statistical systems for the purposes of broad discovery, analysis, and use.
The statistical domain is evolving to move from the traditional capture of data through surveys such as census, to a more dynamic integration of data from across a wide range of domains that can make statistics more timely, more accurate, and better understood.
Geospatial information is a key data source in transforming the way that statistics are produced as it has the potential to fit into every component of the Generic Statistical Business Process Model.
