OGC Requests Comment on Discussion Papers Extending Access to 4D Weather Data Collections

August 21, 2015 — Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) request comments on a proposed OGC Discussion Paper "A MetOcean Metadata Profile for WCS 2.0" and the supporting Discussion Paper "OGC Web Coverage Service Interface Standard - Coverage Collection Extension".

These proposed Discussion Papers specify data and service model extensions to the OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard that optimize use of that standard for 4-D x/y/z/t spatio-temporal climatology, meteorology, and ocean (“MetOcean”) coverages. 4-D x/y/z/t coverages can be arranged in sets. New request types are added over WCS Core and Extensions for spatio-temporal search and the encoding of MetOcean specific metadata. .

Details can be found in the candidate OGC discussion papers titled A MetOcean Metadata Profile for WCS 2.0 and OGC(R) Web Coverage Service Interface Standard – Coverage Collection Extension. Please email your comments to Peter Trevelyan (peter.trevelyan [at] metoffice.gov.uk).

The OGC is a not for profit international geospatial standards consortium of more than 510 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available standards. OGC’s open standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at www.opengeospatial.org/contact.
