The aim of this talk and the geospatial track is to increase the benefits of implementing open source consistent with open geospatial standards. Open standards capture geospatial knowledge gained from previous experience for reuse. Accuracy in data exchange is increased by using standards. Even “simple” use cases done inconsistently cause errors, e.g. coordinate order. Standards from the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) applicable to Apache projects include: coordinate systems, geometry, grids, spatial relations, web services, encodings, metadata. Multiple Apache projects include geospatial implementations as highlighted in this track. To aid in code refuse this track seeks to increase coordinations across Apache projects based on geospatial standards as well as with other external activities. An anticipated outcome of this track is increasing geo-collaboration of Apache and OGC.
