Update on new OGC Standards: GeoPackage, OWS Context & Geosync

Luis Bermudez, Open Geospatial Consortium
Wednesday 15:00 - 15:25
Session 3, Track 7, Slot 1

This presentation presents an overview on new OGC standards and developer tips on how to build your own implementations from scratch or on top of existing open source libraries that implement them. We cover GeoPackage, the new SQLite-based geospatial data format; OWS Context for describing a group of related spatial data resources (e.g. for map composition); and the emerging Geosync architecture based on lessons from CouchDB.
