Spatial Data on the Web Use Cases and Requirements Note Published

Author(s) and publish date


The Spatial Data on the Web Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of its Use Cases and Requirements document. It is being published simultaneously by both W3C and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and is the first joint publication arising from the collaboration announced in January. The document sets out more than 50 requirements derived from more than 40 use cases where geospatial information systems and Web technologies can and should work together more easily. Spatial data — describing geographic locations on the earth and natural and constructed features — enriches location-based consumer services, online maps, journalism, scientific research, government administration, the Internet of Things, and many other applications.

The Working Group expects to begin publishing its primary deliverables later this year, starting with Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices in October. Learn more about the Data Activity.
