20 November 2014 – The OGC seeks comment on the charter for a new OGC Standards Working Group (SWG) being formed to develop an OGC standard for disseminating relatively small “tiles” of geospatial data to lightweight devices. This group will also define in detail how existing widely used OGC standards can be used to support data tiling functionality.

3 November 2015. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) announces a Call for Participation (CFP) in the OGC GeoPackage (GPKG) Elevation Extension Interoperability Experiment (GPKG-EE IE).
The OGC GeoPackage Standards Working Group (SWG) has identified a need to store tiled gridded elevation data in a GeoPackage. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information. The SWG has developed a candidate extension to the GeoPackage Encoding Standard to support elevation data.
