OGC seeks input on GeoPackage extensions

23 July 2015 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) GeoPackage Standards Working Group (SWG) seeks public input to guide their development and prioritization of new extensions to the  OGC GeoPackage (GPKG) Encoding Standard. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information. Adopted by the OGC membership last year, GeoPackage has rapidly become implemented in a broad range of products and applications.

The GeoPackage SWG has posted a survey at  http://tinyurl.com/phvjygk. Interested developers and users can offer suggestions. The survey is intended to help members of the SWG understand the requirements from different communities and domains. Stakeholders are encouraged to respond to the survey and to become involved in development and testing to ensure that this international standard meets their needs.

The GeoPackage standard describes a set of conventions for storing various kinds of geospatial data within a SQLite database. GeoPackages are interoperable across all enterprise and personal computing environments, and are particularly useful on mobile devices like cell phones and tablets in communications environments with limited connectivity and bandwidth. All OGC standards are free and publicly available.

The OGC® is an international geospatial standards consortium of more than 510 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at  http://www.opengeospatial.org/.
