OGC seeks input on GeoPackage extensions

Contact: info at opengeospatial.org

23 July 2015 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) GeoPackage Standards
Working Group (SWG) seeks public input to guide their development and
prioritization of new extensions to the OGC GeoPackage (GPKG) Encoding
GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable,
self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information.
Adopted by the OGC membership last year, GeoPackage has rapidly become
implemented in a broad range of products and applications.

The GeoPackage SWG has posted a survey at http://tinyurl.com/phvjygk
Interested developers and users can offer suggestions. The survey is
intended to help members of the SWG understand the requirements from
different communities and domains. Stakeholders are encouraged to respond
to the survey and to become involved in development and testing to ensure
that this international standard meets their needs.

The GeoPackage standard describes a set of conventions for storing various
kinds of geospatial data within a SQLite database. GeoPackages are
interoperable across all enterprise and personal computing environments,
and are particularly useful on mobile devices like cell phones and tablets
in communications environments with limited connectivity and bandwidth. All
OGC standards are free and publicly available.

The OGC® is an 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 standards support interoperable solutions that
"geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream
IT. Visit the OGC website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/
