OGC API Hackathon 2019 - 20th/21st June in London

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) organised a Hackathon to develop OGC Application Programming Interface (API) specifications. The event took place in London on the 20th and 21st of June.

This hackathon tested the draft OpenAPI-based standards for coverages, map tiles, processes using a common template based on the OGC API for features.

EOEPCA Technical Architect, Richard Conway from Telespazio Vega UK, participated in the session on Thursday  20th of June.

The event was instrumental to the evolution of the OWS standards to a modern API based approach, setting the course for open geospatial standards for the next decade. The hackathon was organized around:

  • Coverages
  • Map Tiles
  • Processing

The Agenda for the event can be found at https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=83865

The outputs of the hackathon inform the development of the OGC API - Common standard, the OGC API - Features standard, OGC API – Processes standard, the OGC API – Coverages standard and the OGC API – Map Tiles standard.

The Hackathon concluded with a session on Friday afternoon where the outcomes of the event were discussed.
