OGC® seeks comment on the OGC OWS Context GeoJSON Encoding Standard

7 October 2015 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the OGC OWS Context GeoJSON Encoding candidate standard. This candidate standard is intended to increase overall use of geospatial information by providing additional geospatial capabilities for the large and growing community of GeoJSON developers. The candidate standard provides flexible alternatives for interoperation and integration of RESTful and service-oriented geoprocessing resources.

The OGC Web Services Context Document standard (OWS Context) (OGC 12-080r2) was created to allow a set of configured information resources to be passed between applications primarily as a collection of services (e.g., OGC Web Services, but also potentially in-line content). This standard supports use cases such as the distribution of search results, the exchange of a set of resources in a common operating picture (COP), and delivery of a set of configured processing services to allow the processing to be reproduced on different nodes. The OWS Context specification, already defined by a conceptual model and ATOM document encoding, is now complemented with a GeoJSON document encoding.

GeoJSON is an independently developed open format for encoding collections of simple geographical features along with their non-spatial attributes using JSON. GeoJSON objects may represent a geometry, a feature, or a collection of features.

The OGC OWS Context GeoJSON Encoding Standard specifies how to use GeoJSON to encode a context document, making it possible to transform context documents between the different encodings without loss of information.

The OGC® is an international geospatial standards consortium of more than 515 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 www.opengeospatial.org/.
