OGC seeks public comment on draft charter for new Geopose Standards Working Group
The Geopose SWG will work towards a standard that will provide an interoperable way to express, record, and share the location, position, and orientation of objects
15 August 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the draft charter for the new Geopose Standards Working Group (SWG).
The main purpose of this SWG will be to develop and propose a standard for geographically-anchored poses (geopose) with 6 degrees of freedom referenced to one or more standardized Coordinate Reference Systems.
The combination of position (up/down [z], left/right [x] and forward/backward [y]) and orientation (pitch, roll, and yaw) with 6 degrees of freedom for objects in computer graphics and robotics is usually referred to as the object’s “pose.” Pose can be expressed as being in relation to other objects and/or to the user. When a pose is defined relative to a geographical frame of reference or coordinate system, it will be called a geographically anchored pose, or ‘geopose’ for short.
An object with a geopose may be any real physical object. This includes objects such as AR display devices (proxy for a user’s eyes), vehicles, robots, or even a park bench. It may also be a digital...
