The pygeoapi project is happy to announce that it has received OGC
Compliance Certification and Reference Implementation Status for the OGC
API - Features specification. pygeoapi is already an OSGeo Community
Project and is working towards full project status through the OSGeo
Incubation process. Both OGC compliance and OSGeo recognition are
important steps for the project's community and visibility.

Standards are at the core of pygeoapi; achieving OGC compliance and
reference implementation status is part of the project's commitment to a
modern, open-source and standards-based API server with a low barrier to
geospatial data.

Scott Simmons, Chief Operations Officer, and Executive Director,
Standards Program, OGC, says “OGC is pleased to see the OGC API -
Features - Part 1: Core standard so quickly implemented. The pygeoapi
Reference Implementation highlights the collaboration across the
geospatial community to develop both the standard and compliant
implementations”.

pygeoapi is a Python server implementation of the OGC API suite of
standards. The project emerged as part of the next generation OGC API
efforts in 2018 and provides the capability for organizations to deploy
a RESTful OGC API endpoint using OpenAPI, GeoJSON, and HTML. pygeoapi is
open source and released under an MIT license.

A demonstration instance of the reference implementation is available at
