Styled Layer Descriptor

The OpenGIS® Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) Profile of the OpenGIS® Web Map Service (WMS) Encoding Standard [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wms] defines an encoding that extends the WMS standard to allow user-defined symbolization and coloring of geographic feature[http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/glossary/f] and coverage[http://www.opengeospatial.org/ogc/glossary/c] data. SLD addresses the need for users and software to be able to control the visual portrayal of the geospatial data. The ability to define styling rules requires a styling language that the client and server can bo...

Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative, Phase 2

The U.S. Census Bureau sponsored the second phase of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Initiative, CIPI-2, an OGC pilot project. Census used the OGC's rapid-prototyping process to develop two prototype systems: an online system to update governmental unit boundary information for existing incorporated places, and an OpenGIS® Specification conformant server solution for Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER®) data. The specifications implemented in the prototype were WMS, WFS and GML.

Well-known text representation of coordinate reference systems

This Standard provides an updated version of WKT representation of coordinate reference systems that follows the provisions of ISO 19111:2007 and ISO 19111-2:2009. It extends the earlier WKT to allow for the description of coordinate operations. This International Standard defines the structure and content of well-known text strings. It does not prescribe how implementations should read or write these strings. The jointly developed draft has also been submitted by ISO TC211 for publication as an International Standard document. The version incorporates comments made during both the OGC Public...
