How it Went! The November 2021 Geospatial API Virtual Code Sprint

hands typing on computer keyboardFrom November 15-17, 2021, OGC and ISO/TC 211 jointly hosted the November 2021 Geospatial API Virtual Code Sprint. The code sprint focused on the refinement of the OGC API - Features Standard, and its ISO version ISO 19168, which offers the capability to serve, create, modify, and query spatial data on the Web. As a first for OGC, the Sprint used Discord to handle video, voice, and chat facilities, and additionally offered 'Mentor Streams' to support developers new to OGC API Standards.

This blog post outlines what happened at the Sprint, any lessons learnt, and how it will further refine the OGC API - Features/ISO 19168 Standards.
