home Welcome to the OGC RAP Advisor

RAP Overview

The RAP Advisor is a web based application that recommends OGC Standards and ORM Sections that are relevant to a system development; such that a community of interest can derive and build a profile of suitable OGC standards to meet their specific needs.

The RAP Advisor will allow you to interact with the OGC Knowledge Base to help determine the scope of your project and relevant OGC standards to facilitate your development.
