The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comment on the candidate GML in JPEG 2000 Encoding Standard version 2. This geospatial data encoding standard defines how the Geography Markup Language (GML) is to be used within JPEG 2000 images for adding geographic content to imagery. Once approved, the revised GML in JPEG2000 version 2 candidate standard joins a suite of international open standards that provide a platform for seamless service-based publishing, discovery, assessment, ordering, access and processing of geospatial information.

Version 1.0.0 of this standard was published in January of 2006. The new candidate version 2 of the standard exploits the capabilities of the OGC GML Coverage Application Schema (GMLCOV) and the OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) 2.0 Interface Standard that have been made available by the OGC since 2006. Version 2 eliminates other shortcomings of Version 1 and also addresses shortcomings of competing methods of using JPEG2000 in geospatial applications.

All OGC standards are free and publicly available on the OGC Standards Page. The candidate GML in JPEG 2000 Encoding Standard version 2 can be downloaded below.

The GML in JPEG 2000 Standards Working Group (GMLJP2 SWG) will consider comments on the candidate GMLJP2 Standard that have been posted through 19 March 2014
