Sam Bacharach clarifies on the May Issue of GeoWorld the role of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the work of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. The result of their work translates into OpenGIS Specifications.

Among the products that implement these standards are Open Source packages like the effort from the Open Planning Project with GeoServer, a fully compliant WMS server.
