GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery (GMLJP2) Implementation Specification: Request for Comments
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is contemplating adoption of a technology called GML simple features profile. OGC invites public comment on a candidate specification that will soon be presented for approval by OGC members as an OpenGIS(R) Implementation Specification Profile. The purpose of this Request for Comment (RFC) is to obtain comments on the proposal for technologies and needed interfaces required for GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery (GMLJP2) Implementation Specification. Documentation of this draft specification can be downloaded here:

The Geography Markup Language (GML) is an XML grammar for the encoding of geographic information including geographic features, coverages, observations, topology, geometry, coordinate reference systems, units of measure, time, and value objects. JPEG 2000 is a wavelet based encoding for imagery that provides the ability to include XML data for description of the image within the JPEG 2000 data file. The "GML in JPEG 2000 for Geographic Imagery (GMLJP2) Implementation Specification" defines the OGC standard method of using GML within JPEG 2000 images for geographic imagery.
