|Definitionskos:definition||EarthCube aims to create an integrated system to access, analyze and share information that isused by the entire geosciences community. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is anorganization of which more than four hundred companies and agencies are members, whosepurpose is to create open source standards for sharing geospatial and observational information.The authors of this paper are users of OGC standards in our work in hydrology, meteorology,climatology, oceanography and in the solid earth sciences, in other words, in key disciplinaryfields that contribute to the Geosciences. Moreover, the OGC has an effective process forengaging individuals from many countries in standards development and interoperability testingthat encourages them to set aside the roles they play in their home organizations and insteadfocus just on what is needed to share a particular class of information across the globe. Thispaper examines the hypothesis that an OGC-like process could be useful for broader sharing ofinformation in the geosciences.|
