The OGC announces Wide Area Motion Imagery Best Practices Document

14 January 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has adopted the OGC Wide Area Motion Imagery Best Practices Document (WAMI BP) as an official OGC Best Practice.

The OGC WAMI Best Practices Document recommends a set of Web service interfaces for the dissemination of Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI) products. It describes a performance centric, scalable grammar and schema that enable globally federated dissemination of WAMI products for high performance, high-speed consumption.

The service interfaces described in the OGC WAMI Best Practices Document are designed to be modular and extensible. Each service uses HTTP 1.1 as a base reference standard and each is stateless and RESTful. The services are read-only (i.e. server is not permitted to change the data). The grammar draws heavily from existing OGC standards.

PIXIA Corp. submitted this Best Practice to the OGC.

The candidate OGC WAMI Best Practices document is available and free to the public at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/bp. A " WAMI Primer" is available to help developers implement this Best Practice.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 480 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
