2019 OGC API - Features and Catalogues Sprint

Event Description: 

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is organizing a follow-up to the OGC API Hackathon [http://www.opengeospatial.org/projects/initiatives/oapihackathon19] to focus on its emerging standards for Features and Catalogues and invites you to participate. This event is organized jointly with the SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog (STAC) community to advance work of mutual interest to both groups.

OGC has been developing a new generation of web API standards leveraging OpenAPI to document requirements for implementation. In parallel, but in close coordination, the STAC community has been advancing a specification focused on imagery catalogs, which is based on OGC API - Features.

The purpose of this Sprint is to work on the Query and Filter operations for data that will extend functionality of OGC API - Features [https://github.com/opengeospatial/ogcapi-features] and OGC API - Catalogue [https://github.com/opengeospatial/CAT4.0]. The Query and Filter operations have been amongst the first extensions deemed necessary for the OGC API standards and to bring the OGC API - Features standard similar in capability to the Web Feature Service standards. These capabilities are also required by STAC [https://github.com/radiantearth/stac-spec] so that specification can remain aligned with the OGC APIs.

The objectives of this Sprint are to clarify requirements and methods for the Query and Filter operations, develop prototype functionality through running code, and assess the compatibility of the capabilities with the OGC API - Features standard and the in-work OGC API - Common [https://github.com/opengeospatial/oapi_common] standard.

An OGC Sprint is a collaborative and inclusive event driven by innovative and rapid programming with minimum process and organization constraints to support the development of new applications and candidate standards.

There will be an opportunity for joint discussion with all participants on the goals and objectives of the event, as well as the final briefing of findings and opinions of the participants. However, the majority of the time will be spent in collaboration between participants in active coding.

The Sprint will be run by the OGC API - Features Standards Working Group (SWG) Chairs, key leadership from the STAC initiative, and with support from OGC staff.

Attendance priority will be given to those with an implementation or desire to implement the specifications.
