OGC Web Services, Phase 7

OWS testbeds are part of OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on and collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate specifications into OGC's Specification Program, where they are formalized for public release. In OGC's Interoperability Initiatives, international teams of technology providers work together to solve specific geoprocessing interoperability problems posed by the Initiative's sponsoring organizations.

PubSub SWG

The SWG shall review existing material, e.g. in form of OGC Engineering Reports and Standards (both OGC and external), to produce a version 1.0 implementation standard that clearly defines how to enable publish/subscribe functionality for OGC Web Services in a common way. If applicable, this standard may be a component of the OWS Common suite of standards. The items that need to be addressed by the SWG include:
1.      Write a core document that clearly defines the requirements for enabling publish/subscribe functionality.

OpenSearch Geo and Time Extensions

This OGC standard specifies the Geo and Time extensions to the OpenSearch query protocol. OpenSearch is a collection of simple formats for the sharing of search results.

The OpenSearch description document format can be used to describe a search engine so that it can be used by search client applications. The OpenSearch description format allows the use of extensions that allow search engines to request a specific and contextual query parameter from search clients.

The OpenSearch response elements can be used to extend existing syndication formats, such as RSS and Atom, with...

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...
