15 July 2013 - The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) is seeking comments
on the candidate OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard
Processing Extension.

The OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard
<http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcs> defines an open standard
interface to access multi-dimensional spatio-temporal coverages, such as
sensor data, satellite imagery, image time series, point clouds, and
meshes. The candidate WCS Processing Extension standard specifies the
standard service interface to a Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS)
query language that may optionally be implemented by WCS servers. WCPS
extends WCS functionality with a high-level query language for
server-side filtering and processing of multi-dimensional Big Data.
Servers may transparently parallelize such queries over multiple cluster
or cloud nodes. To this end, the WCS extension defines an additional
request type, ProcessCoverages, beyond the core WCS request types
GetCapabilities, DescribeCoverage, and GetCoverage.

All OGC standards are free and publicly available. Download the
candidate OGC WCS Processing Extension Standard
<http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/104>.  Comments are
due by 22 August 2013.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 480 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. Visit the OGC website
