The FreeGIS project is not a single product but a project. It aims
to collect links to gis-related Free Software Projects. Thus the
further implementation can be improved since more attention can be drawn
to the projects and maybe some projects can establish synergistic links.
However some of the projects are OpenGIS compliant or at least are
discussing if and how to achieve compliance.
As I understand OGC has done a lot of work on Web Mapping in the past,
but other specifications are still under discussion.
