OGC® Requests Comments on Candidate Web Map Tiling Standard

WAYLAND, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 27, 2009— The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) is requesting comments from the public on the candidate OpenGIS® Web Map Tiling Service (WMTS) Interface Standard.

The candidate WMTS Interface Standard is much like the OGC’s popular Web Map Server (WMS) Interface Standard, but it enables better server performance in applications that involve many simultaneous requests. To improve performance, instead of creating a new image for each request, it returns small pre-generated images (e.g., PNG or JPEG) or reuses identical previous requests that follow a discrete set of tile matrices. This proposed standard provides support for multiple architectural patterns – KVP, REST and SOAP.

The 30 day public comment period for this document begins February 27, 2009. Comments are due by March 29, 2009. After the OGC’s WMS Standards Working Group has addressed comments received in response to the WMTS RFC the draft documents will be submitted to the OGC Technical Committee and Planning Committee for their review and possible approval as an adopted OGC Standard.

The WMTS RFC can be downloaded from http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/54.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 370 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OpenGIS® 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.
