The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) membership has voted to adopt the OGC GeoAPI 3.0 Interface Standard as an official OGC standard.

The GeoAPI standard provides a set of Java® language interfaces based on the ISO 19100 series of geospatial abstract models for metadata and feature geometry as well as two OGC Abstract Specifications for metadata and coordinate reference systems. In addition to producing this set of Java language interfaces, the OGC GeoAPI 3.0 Standards Working Group has produced a test suite through which developers implementing the Java interfaces can test their implementations.

The GeoAPI project emerges from the earlier OGC Geographic Objects effort and represents the collaborative effort of participants from various institutions and software communities. The GeoAPI standard provides a set of interfaces in the Java language to help software projects produce high quality geospatial software. This work does not cover all OGC standards.

The OGC GeoAPI 3.0 Interface Standard documents, including jars (Java archives) and schemas are available at
