The OGC requests comment on the Processing Extension to the OGC Web Coverage Service Interface Standard

15 July 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments on the candidate OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard Processing Extension.

The  OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard defines an open standard interface to access multi-dimensional spatio-temporal coverages, such as sensor data, satellite imagery, image time series, point clouds, and meshes. The candidate WCS Processing Extension standard specifies the standard service interface to a Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS) query language that may optionally be implemented by WCS servers. WCPS extends WCS functionality with a high-level query language for server-side filtering and processing of multi-dimensional Big Data. Servers may transparently parallelize such queries over multiple cluster or cloud nodes. To this end, the WCS extension defines an additional request type, ProcessCoverages, beyond the core WCS request types GetCapabilities, DescribeCoverage, and GetCoverage.

All OGC standards are free and publicly available. Download the  candidate OGC WCS Processing Extension Standard.  Comments are due by 22 August 2013.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 480 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
