DDE Standards Task Group

A collaborative task group implementing geoscience information standards for IUGS’s flagship Deep-time Digital Earth Project


A CGI working group developing and publishing data standards for mineral resources and mining information


A collaborative OGC-CGI working group for the GeoSciML geological data standard

Geoscience Terminology Working Group (GTWG)

A CGI working group developing and publishing multi-lingual geoscience vocabularies


Although the CGI does not have any formal working group concerned with geoscience metadata it was felt that it could help geoscience organisations develop their metadata implementations by providing a forum for posting work and discussions.

Regional Working Groups

The CGI council recognises the potential need to institute working groups that will address the specialised technical or scientific needs of regions defined by culture, geography or politics and encourages the establishment of CGI Regional Working Groups (RWG).
