OGC® Announces Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS) Standard

WAYLAND, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 25, 2009— The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. OGC® announces adoption and availability of the OpenGIS® Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS) Interface Standard. The WCPS specification is available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcps.

The OpenGIS® Web Coverage Service Interface Standard (WCS) defines a protocol-independent language for the extraction, processing, and analysis of multi-dimensional gridded coverages (see http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/glossary/c | coverages) representing sensor, image, or statistics data. Services implementing this language provide access to original or derived sets of geospatial coverage information, in forms that are useful for client-side rendering, input into scientific models, and other client applications. Further information about WCPS can be found at the http://www.ogcnetwork.net/wcps | WCPS Service page of the OGC Network.

An online demonstration of WCPS with 1-D to 4-D use cases encompassing environmental sensor data, remote sensing, geophysics, and climate data is available at www.earthlook.org.

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.
