[Geomoose-users] Fwd: [OSGeo-Discuss] WFS 3.0 and SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog sprint in Colorado


Thought this was pertinent enough to repost here.

Hello OSGeo-ers!

I just wanted to make sure everyone knew about an event [1] I'm helping organize, to bring together developers to give feedback on the evolving WFS 3.0 specification. It's organized by Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and sponsored by USGS, but the goal is make it different than a typical OGC event. Indeed the direct inspiration is the code sprints that OSGeo runs, but to center it around a standard and give developers an opportunity to actually code against the spec _before_ it becomes an official standard, and to have any feedback incorporated.

I'm not sure if many people have been following the progress of WFS 3.0, but it's been made more like how we build open source software, with an open repository on github [2], and management of the spec through issues and pull requests. And it's JSON and RESTful at the core, aiming to be much easier to implement than existing OGC specs. For more backstory on it and my take on its potential see my blog posts [3].

I'd love to see a number of OSGeo people come, it's on March 6 & 7th in Ft. Collins, Colorado. Contributing I believe will help show OGC that there is interest in the wider developer and open source world if they do things differently, and help evolve how they create standards to be more compatible with how developers work. I'm also organizing a day on March 8th on SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog[4] [5], an open spec a group of us started working on to search satellite imagery archives, that I'm hoping we can align with the WFS specification. If you're interested in WFS and/or STAC just email me and I can give you more details, or just fill out the form at https://goo.gl/forms/RqQtNbfdEOHuLE272 - there are some limited travel grants if that helps get there.

I know travel may be tough for those also going to Bonn, as the OSGeo sprint there is two weeks later. I am figuring out if we will do a remote participation option for Colorado, so email me if you're interested in that. And Angelos had a great idea[6], of organizing a session on WFS/STAC at Bonn, which I'd love to see. Drop me a line if you are attending the OSGeo code sprint and interested in attending (or leading :) a session there.

best regards,
