The MISB ensures the development, application and implementation of standards that maintain interoperability, integrity, and quality of motion imagery, associated metadata, audio and other related systems in the DoD/IC/NSG.
The NTB facilitates the development, selection, adoption, profiling, documentation, application, implementation, and testing of standards essential to establishing interoperability and quality for still imagery, gridded data, associated metadata, and other related aspects within the NSG.
The IQSWG manages the Image Quality standards that provide the basis for ensuring the quality, integrity, and fidelity of digital image products for the GEOINT community. IQ standards provide the recommended standard attributes, parameters, and base measurements of softcopy image processing, exploitation environments, NIIRS scales, and workstation displays for U.S. recognized entities and subdivisions.
The CSMWG ensures all sensor models identified and designated to support NSG geo-positioning services, production and applications are based upon, and compliant with, consensus-based community standards. CSMWG’s mission is additionally to ensure that standards-compliant sensor models are usable by multiple applications across the NSG.
The OFG works issues across functional domains concerning OPIR data and metadata standards development in support of exposingOPIR data in a net-centric SOA.
The ASM FG is responsible for those aspects of GEOINT standardization relating to data structure, data exchange, semantics, logic, and the communication of meaning, as well as metadata associated with these aspects of GEOINT. This includes GEOINT content, features, attributes, and metadata coding schemas, as well as data formats, exchange media and formats, and semantic resources that support capture and the exploitation of geographic information and geographic metadata.
(*formerly Application Schemas for Feature Encoding Focus Group (ASFE) and Metadata Focus Group (MFG))
The PFG deals with the standardization of GEOINT relating to the visual depiction of physical features and geographically referenced activities, including human to media interface aspects, such as visual symbolization of GEOINT and symbol design, for both digital display and hardcopy media; rules and behaviors of GEOINT symbols that may be necessary to ensure consistent rendering across the community; and interoperability in the exchange of portrayal information among the GEOINT community.
