The Open Geospatial Consortium seeks public comment on the candidate “GeoPackage Extension for Tiled Gridded Coverage Data” standard. GeoPackage is an open, standards-based, platform-independent, portable, self-describing, compact format for transferring geospatial information. It is suitable for use across many domains, from defense and intelligence to outdoor recreation.
Furthermore ss part of the work, the scope of the extension was expanded from just elevation data to any regular gridded coverage data. The extension now defines how to store any gridded coverage in a GeoPackage data store. This extension specifies requirements and optional clauses for additional GeoPackage tables as well as requirements for extensions to existing GeoPackage table definitions.
The candidate standard is available for public review and comment at https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/75159. Comments are due by 22 September 2017 and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
