Geography Markup Language (GML) simple features profile (with Corrigendum)
GMLsf
 2.0  10-100r3  Linda van den Brink, Clemens Portele, Panagiotis (Peter) A. Vretanos 2011-05-11
This approved OGC Implementation Standard defines a Simple Features profile of the Geography Markup Language version 3.2. This Simple Features Profile has been aligned with the OGC Simple Features standard for SQL version 1.2. Simple Features include: Point, Curve (LineString), Surface (Polygon), Geometry, MultiPoint, MultiCurve, MultiSurface, and MultiGeometry. The detailed abstract model for OGC features and geometry can be found in the OGC Abstract Specification, Topic Volume 1: Features (which is equivalent to ISO 19107). This Simple Features profile of GML began as a product of OGC’s Interoperability Program: a global, collaborative, hands-on engineering and testing program designed to deliver prototype technologies and proven candidate standards into the OGC’s Specification Development Program. In OGC Interoperability Initiatives, international teams of technology providers work together to solve specific geo-processing interoperability problems posed by Initiative.

GML CRS Profile
 1.0.0  05-094r1  Arliss Whiteside 2006-07-18
This document defines a profile of the Geography Markup Language (GML) version 3.1.1 for supporting other profiles for encoding definitions of Coordinate Reference Systems (CRSs) and Coordinate Operations. This profile can be used without a GML Application Schema, and such use is assumed in this document.

GML grid CRS Profile
 1.0.0  05-096r1  Arliss Whiteside 2006-07-18
This document defines a profile of the Geography Markup Language (GML) version 3.1.1 for encoding definitions of grid coverage (including image) Coordinate Reference Systems (CRSs) plus related coordinate Transformations. This document also specifies some Universal Resource Names (URNs) for definitions in the "ogc" URN namespace, in addition to those specified in [OGC 05-010]. Additional specific URNs are defined for definitions of the datums, coordinate systems, and coordinate system axes which are often used in definitions of grid and image CRSs.

OGC® Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) Simple Profile  1.0  13-082r2  Joan Masó 2015-08-14
The Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) Simple profile defines restrictions that limit the flexibility in implementing a WMTS instance. Adding additional requirements has the goal of simplifying the creation of services and clients. By implementing this profile, clients can more easily combine data coming from different services including from other WMTS instances and even from some tile implementations that are not OGC WMTS based, such as some current distributions of OSM. In fact, most of these tiling services are implicitly following most of the WMTS requirements. Many current WMTS services that implement this profile will have to undergo some changes on how tiles are exposed, and a client that is compatible with WMTS 1.0 will be immediately compatible with this profile. The aim is to align the WMTS standard to other popular tile initiatives which are less flexible but widely adopted.
