Cloudant Has Joined The OGC
(We are re-posting here Norman's recent post to the Cloudant Blog.)
Cloudant is pleased to announce that we have joined the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The OGC serves as forum to promote collaboration and development of geospatial standards for geospatial interoperability.
Cloudant will stand on the shoulders of the giants in the industry, GEOS, GDAL and libspatialindex and also learn from the development of the open source geospatial database, PostGIS. Distribution, high availability and support for unstructured data will be in the platform and Cloudant will offer standard interfaces to ingest and disseminate geospatial data.
As part of this development we will review the geospatial code and see which parts we can donate to the open source community and which parts need to stay part of our commercially supported offering.
If you have requirements for geospatial data and Cloudant please send them to us here.
