1. RESTful Service Policy Standards Working Group
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) sees value in Web Services and Applications which make use of a RESTful approach to design. OGC believes that a common understanding and agreement on how to structure Resource Models and leverage uniform Web interfaces, in other words a common RESTful approach to the design and standardization of Web services, will lead to both improved interoperability and greater accessibility for these services. During the OGC Technical Committee (TC) meeting in Boulder in September 2011, the REST Subcommittee members recommended forming a standards working group to write such a policy standard.
