Policy & Procedures

Core content of the GEOSS Standards Register are derived from the GEOSS 10-Year Implementation Plan and its companion Reference Document.  At minimum, all GEOSS Components are bound by these requirements, referenced in GEOSS documents as "interoperability arrangements.” These requirements are expected to be further expanded, clarified, or otherwise modified over time.  In addition to core required standards, other standards and unique “interoperability arrangements” are documented in the Standards Register. GEOSS Components that offer data services will refer to the specific standards employed by referencing an entry in the Standards Register.

The GEOSS Standards Register is also designed to allow GEOSS participants to peruse recommended standards for various applications.  Suggestions for recommended standards will be reviewed by the GEOSS Architecture and Data Committee.
