OGC seeks public comment on ‘GML Application Schema – Coverages, GRIB2 Coverage Encoding Profile’ Candidate Standard

29 March 2017 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking public comment on the candidate standard GRIB2 Coverage, an Encoding Profile of the OGC Coverage Implementation Schema.

The candidate standard specifies the usage of the GRIB2 data format for the encoding of OGC coverages. The GRIB2 specification is maintained by the  World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and is the standard encoding for the exchange and storage of general, regularly distributed information expressed in binary form. GRIB2 is primarily used to represent the outputs of numerical weather prediction (NWP) models, but is in no way restricted to this domain.

GRIB2 is the output format mandated by WMO for the exchange of numerical weather prediction model data, and is used in various WMO systems for international data exchange. Extending the OGC Web Coverage Service standard to allow the client to consume coverages encoded in GRIB2 enables the exposure of several interfaces that are currently used within WMO to users interested in pulling and working with NWP data directly. This is an important step in increasing the interoperability of the computing resources within the NWP community and exposing data to further additional communities.

The GRIB2 Coverage Encoding Profile is based on the authoritative format specification available in the  WMO Manual on Codes.

The candidate GML Application Schema – Coverages, GRIB2 Coverage Encoding Profile is available for review and comment at  https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/68769. Comments are due by 29th April 2017 and should be sent to  Email Contact.

About the OGC

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 525 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that ‘geo-enable’ the Web, wireless and location based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
