Request for Comment on Image Geopositioning Service (IGS)
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is contemplating adoption of a technology called OpenGIS Image Geopositioning Service (IGS). OGC invites public comment on a candidate specification that will soon be presented for approval by OGC members as an OpenGIS(R) Implementation Specification.
The OpenGIS Image Geopositioning Service (IGS) Draft Implementation Specification defines an Image Geopositioning Service (IGS) interface to services that perform triangulation. (NOTE: The name of this service has not yet been formally agreed upon.) Accompanying this draft specification is a separate OpenGIS Image Geopositioning Metadata Geography Markup Language (GML) Draft Application Schema, which is structured to provide consistency between the IGS and other OGC Web Services (OWS) specifications.
The purpose of this Request for Public Comment (RFPC) is to obtain comments on the proposal for technologies and needed interfaces required for the IGS. Documentation of this draft specification can be downloaded below:
