Access to the Internet will predominantly be from mobile devices including smart phones and machine-to-machine interactions. Most information exchanged in mobile internet will include spatial components.
In support of OGC members and society, this OGC Interoperability Program initiative aims to help develop the consensus standards infrastructure necessary to achieve the full societal, economic and scientific benefits of location information in mobile applications worldwide.
This interoperability experiment (GPKG-EE IE) tested a proposed extension to the OGC GeoPackage Encoding Standard (12-128r1). Testing was achieved by building GeoPackages using the proposed extension and then using those GeoPackages in visualization and analysis software. This IE produced an OGC Engineering Report that discusses whether the elevation extension meets community requirements and can proceed to the OGC standards adoption process.
