Nadine Alameh Joins OGC as Director, Interoperability Programs

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 06, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) announced that Dr. Nadine Alameh has been appointed as a Director, Interoperability Programs for the Consortium. In her new position, Nadine plans and manages OGC Interoperability Initiatives, which include testbeds, pilots and interoperability experiments designed to develop, test and validate specifications in support of developing standards for geospatial information.

Dr. Alameh is already leading activities in the OGC Interoperability Program. In the OGC Web Services (OWS-7) Interoperability Initiative she is managing the aviation developments using the Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) and the Weather Information Exchange Model (WXXM) in an OGC Web Services environment. Her role is also vital to the success of OGC's leadership in the GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot.

Nadine Alameh's appointment to the OGC's staff underscores the Consortium's commitment to maintaining technology leadership as the preeminent consensus standards organization in geospatial technology and location based Web services.

"Nadine has been a valued member of the OGC community and an active participant in many OGC projects," said George Percival, OGC's Chief Architect and Executive Director of the Interoperability Program. "We are fortunate indeed to have her on staff now to play a key role in advancing OGC Interoperability Initiatives."

Beginning with her PhD dissertation at MIT on "Distributed Interoperable Geographic Information Services", Dr. Alameh has been a leader in the geospatial interoperability field. Most recently, Dr. Alameh founded a small business focused on promoting and incorporating geospatial interoperability within her clients' enterprise architectures. Nadine also served as a Senior Technical Advisor to NASA's Geosciences Interoperability Office, representing NASA in OGC and other standards organizations. Nadine holds two MS degrees and a Ph.D. from MIT.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 395 companies, government agencies, research organizations and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Visit the OGC website at
