In January, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) released Part 1 of the OGC API – Processes standard. As one of the editors, I would like to provide a short introduction to the API.
52°North has successfully participated as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code for the eighth year in a row. Two students worked with us over the summer and helped improve the enviroCar UI / UX and create a WPS Client for ArcGIS Pro. This year’s Mentor Summit took place in Munich, Germany.
52°North successfully participated in the OGC Testbed 13. OGC Testbeds define a set of requirements in which OGC service implementors test the applicability of their services in real live scenarios and how well they work with other client and service implementations. They are sponsored by Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) members from industry and government organizations. 52°North edited and contributed to Engineering Reports about geoprocessing workflows and related security aspects, as well as fit-for-purpose workflows and asynchronous services.
Two weeks ago at this year’s FOSSGIS conference, I presented some news regarding the 52°North WPS project and also about the OGC WPS standard.
News from the WPS project
You can find more information about it here: wps-js.
The next topic was the current developments in OGC Testbed (OWS) 10, namely the RDF (Resource Description Framework) provenance encoding that was developed within the project. To learn about the basics of provenance in our context, you can have a look in this OGC Public Engineering Report(ER). The ER sums up the developments of the previous testbed, where we implemented XML-based provenance information as addidtional WPS output.
