OGC DGGS Standards Working Group seeks public comment on new tasks of work added to its charter
The Discrete Global Grid Systems SWG will work with relevant working groups as necessary to embed linkages between DGGS and other standards in the OGC Standards baseline.
5 September 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on new work tasks added to the charter of the Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS) Standards Working Group (SWG).
The original goal of the DGGS SWG was to deliver an implementation standard. However, the fundamental and cross-cutting nature of DGGS resulted in the OGC DGGS being published as an OGC Abstract Specification that defines a conceptual model. In recognition of the nature of the relationship between DGGS and other OGC standards, much of the originally forecast effort to draft specific DGGS encoding standards can instead be accommodated by a mixture of extensions, changes, or best practice guides to/for existing OGC Standards. The DGGS SWG is therefore working with relevant OGC Working Groups as necessary to embed linkages between DGGS and other standards in the OGC Standards baseline. The new tasks proposed for the DGGS SWG address these linkages.
The goal of DGGS is to enable rapid assembly of spatial data without the difficulties of...
