17 December 2015. Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on the OGC® Coverage Implementation Schema(abbreviated as “CIS”). This candidate OGC Standard complements the OGC Abstract Topic 6 Standard (which is identical to ISO 19123) with a concrete coverage model whose implementations are conformance testable and, hence, are interoperable. ISO has expressed interest to adopt CIS 1.1 as ISO 19123-2.
