Dear Innocent -

As pointed out in the other response to your email, there is a considerable amount of resources/documents on the OGC web site. The question I need to ask is, "What exactly are you interested in?" Are you interested in architecture, the actual standards, abstract models, implementations, and so forth.

In the meantime, I would encourage you to:

Check out (and subscribe - its free) to OGC User News:
Check out the OGC Reference Model (now in major revision):
And check out the new OGC network:

Hope this helps.

By my experience, there are a lot of document in this site that are usefull for you. Read them and access some WMS sites ( to make what you have read more clearly.
If you want to implement , that link is good for you :

I hope you will be a good OGC cooker soon. :lol:
