OGC announces water information standard
A new water information standard has been announced by the international standards body, Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). Known as WaterML2.0, the new standard will assist in better management of one of the world’s most valuable natural resources.
CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology led the development of the new international water information exchange standard, which has already been adopted by a number of organisations, including the United States Geological Survey, KISTERS, Deltares, San Diego Supercomputer Center (University of California) and GeoConnections - Natural Resources Canada.
