The OGC Web Services — Phase 4 (OWS-4) test-bed is an initiative under the OpenGeospatial Consortium’s (OGC) interoperability programme in which 72 organisations collaborated to extend and demonstrate interoperability of internet based geospatial services. The main activities of the test-bed took place between June and December of 2006. These activities included the deployment and integration of a number of software and data components culminating in two demonstrations of the capabilities developed during the test-bed, as well as numerous reports detailing issues encountered and recommendations.
