                         URN Namespace for the
          Defence Geospatial Information Working Group (DGIWG)

Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) for Uniform
   Resource Name (URN) Namespace resources published by the Defence
   Geospatial Information Working Group (DGIWG).  The DGIWG defines and
   manages resources that utilize this URN name model.

   Management activities for these and other resource types are provided
   by the DGIWG Registry System (DRS).

1.  Introduction

   The DGIWG is a multi-national body responsible to the Defence
   organizations of member nations for coordinated advice and policy
   recommendations on standards and practices for geospatial information
   and support services.  The DGIWG creates standards and recommended
   practices required to enable the provision, exchange, and
   exploitation of geospatial information.  It supports the requirements
   of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the other
   alliances that its member nations participate in, including
   peacekeeping sanctioned by the United Nations.

   The DGIWG has defined, and continues to define, standards, processes,
   and procedures for the use of international standards in the DGIWG
   community.

   The DGIWG geospatial standards are built upon the generic and
   abstract standards for geographic information defined by the
   International Organization for Standardization (ISO) TC/211 technical
   committee.  The DGIWG makes use of the service specifications
   endorsed by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

   The DGIWG defines information components for use in the development
   of product specifications and application schemas for military
   geospatial data.  The DGIWG also establishes service specifications,
   encoding formats, and testing methodologies to meet military
   geospatial intelligence requirements.

   Some of the solutions being developed by the DGIWG need XML
   namespaces that are managed so that they are unique and persistent.
   To assure that the uniqueness is absolute, the registration of a
