The OGC requests comment on the Range Subsetting Extension to the OGC Web Coverage Service Interface Standard

 

8 August 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments on the candidate OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard Range Subsetting Extension.
 
The  OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard defines an open standard interface to access multi-dimensional spatio-temporal coverages, such as satellite imagery, image time series, point clouds, and meshes. The candidate WCS Range Subsetting Extension document establishes a standard way to extract specific fields from the range set of a coverage during server-side processing of a coverage in a WCS GetCoverage request. This operation is very common in many application domains, for example in remote sensing where it is known as “band” or “channel” subsetting and in climate modeling where it is called “variable extraction”.
 
All OGC standards are free. The candidate OGC WCS Range Subsetting Extension Standard can be downloaded from  http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/106.
 
The OGC WCS Standards Working Group will consider all comments when preparing a final draft of the candidate standard. The comment period ends 7 September 2013.
 
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.
