OGC Seeks Comments on Candidate GeoAPI 3.0 Interface Standard

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 01, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) seeks public comment on the candidate OGC GeoAPI 3.0 Application Programming Interface.

The GeoAPI standard provides a set of Java language interfaces based on the ISO 19100 series of geospatial abstract models for metadata and feature geometry as well as two OGC Abstract Specifications for metadata and coordinate reference systems. In addition to producing this set of Java language interfaces, the OGC GeoAPI 3.0 Standards Working Group is producing a test suite through which developers implementing the Java interfaces can test their implementations.

The GeoAPI project emerges from the earlier OGC Geographic Objects effort and is the result of the collaboration of participants from various institutions and software communities. The GeoAPI project's goal is to provide a set of interfaces in the Java language to help software projects produce high quality geospatial software. This work is not expected to cover all OGC standards.

The candidate OGC GeoAPI 3.0 Interface Standard and information on submitting comments on this document are available at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/66. The public comment period closes on 1 May 2010.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 390 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.
